Can't force them. Find a picture of a Clown hosting, cut it out, and tape it nearest where the Anemone is, they'll get the hint. Oh, and i'm not kidding either.

hmm Maybe I could try that with my one month old when it's time for potty training. Just tape a picture of another kid on a toilette to the wall of the bathroom.

Why do u have 5 clownfish in 1 tank, and same with the anemone? how big is this tank. Could be potentionaly disasterous, clownfish are very agressive/teritorial fish. It should only take a week or so, let them do it on their own, after they are settled in, they will start exploring, find the anemone and slide into it.
