I agree backwards clothes and pj's will help with the getting into her diaper and playing with poop. I suggest finding a way to stay home for a period of a few days, cancel dinner plans or shopping trips. Ditch the diaper and put her in actual underwear. If you have carpets cover them in plastic, and do a potty training intense boot camp. I'm assuming she's at least 3 since this is in preschoolers and at that age she's plenty old enough to know not to play with her poop. A baby is just exploring and still learning, at 3 she knows that's gross and wrong. Positive reinforcement is a good way to go, reward her every single time she attempts to go potty/goes potty. If she messes herself talk about how that's not what big girls do, and this behavior doesn't get a reward. Unless there's something medically wrong she'll eventually come around. Typically children of that age want to please.
