Gross! Helping Kids End Their Bad Habits

Let’s be honest: Kids do all kinds of gross things sometimes, from nose-picking to nail-biting.

Both my kids have picked their noses in the past. My 3 yr. old still picks her nose and then tries to eat it. I need to give her a crayon or other toy to keep her mind off her nose! I have been scolding her as soon as I see her do it and it makes her jump!....not the best idea. Anyone have another idea for me?
