i would take video of it and show all their friends, or at least threaten them.  they are old enough to understand

my 5yo does it all the time also. He pulled out a bloody boogie the other day and it freaked him out. he still does it but not nearly as often as he used to. I told him, if he keeps picking, not only will he get bloody boogies but his nose could start bleeding, i think that did the trick lol

Just make them use a tissue. It's a kid compulsion.

Put hotsauce on their fingers. That's what my grandmother did to me.

 My 4 year old does this LOL I don't make it a bad thing, I juts simply *remind* him that "we pick our nose in the bathroom and wipe it on toilet paper. Please go to the bathroom to pick your nose." He's pretty compliant.

We put a band aid on ds' s finger. It stopped the picking immediately.
