Four year old reverting back by pooping in pants

Hi Moms! My daughter is now four and has been potty trained for a few months. About a week before Christmas, she started pooping in her pants. I figured it had to do with the excitement of the holidays. But it hasn't stopped! She has had two accidents at pre-school. We've even started putting a toy away every time she has an accident, and the only way to get it back is when she poops on the potty. Well, we haven't been very successful. We ask her what's going on and she just says that she doesn't know why or that she just forgot. Help!

My son is 7 and wears a pull up to bed every night cause he still has accidents. He is fully potty trained just has accidents at night. I found that its best not to ask him why he has accidents. Try using a pull up again, it might make her feel like shes a baby and quit pooping in her pants again. Hope this helps and best of luck:)
