Default Area rugs on carpets keep moving

Area rugs on carpets keep moving
************************************************** ****

When I lay area rugs over carpets with kids around the area rugs move
around and turn up at the corners and gets ruined.

How can I keep these area rugs from moving ?

We used the rubber/latex available at Home Depot. Using this, the area
rugs hold on tile but not on carpet.

Can anyone suggest anything ?

Thanks,
Kim

There is a special type of mat material for rug on carpet. It feels very
slightly sticky but does no harm. It works the best, but even it is not
perfect and the rugs will creep over time. It's called Magic Stop Pad.
