The incidents happened in the Ballybeen Estate area on Monday, police said.
Alliance East Belfast MLA Judith Cochrane has expressed her concerns over the attempted abductions.
"As a mother to two young girls, I know the dreadful thoughts that go through a parents mind when they hear of this story, she said.
"I would urge parents to remind their children of the dangers of being approached by a stranger.
"The person who tried to abduct these girls must urgently apprehended by the police, so I would urge anybody with any information about it to contact the police."
Anyone with information has been asked to come forward.
