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. The area rugs hold
on tile but not on carpet.

Can anyone suggest anything ?

Thanks,
Kim

Stick them down with double-sided tape ?
Also you can get some grippers with very short pins on each side that
grip into the carpet and rug to hold them together. Not sure where I
saw them though.
Would velcro hooks attach to the carpet ?
Just a few thoughts.

I bought some sticky underlay from John Lewis'. Not cheap but it
works really well.
