We have rough concrete steps to go into the house. AND we have a very Active, independent almost 2yr old daughter who wants to use them. My husband thinks we should cover the steps with indoor/outdoor carpeting so she doesn't get hurt falling on the steps. I concerned that they will be slippery when wet or snow covered. Any suggestions? ANd if we do put carpeting on the steps, how do we go about it?

I need an answer to the same question.. Three little ones under 3 and three sets of brick steps!

The best way to attach outdoor carpet to steps is to use double sided tape. There is a tape made for outdoor installs.
Attach tape at back and front of each tread and top and bottom of each rise.
Start laying carpet at top and work your way down
Thanks
