Is it possible they are doing it in their sleep? I know when i was younger I would sleep walk to go to the washroom, usually my mom would find me while I was on my way somewhere to go pee. One time she found me heading out the front door. If this isn't the case they are most likely doing it deliberately and I would make them clean it up themselves. If that doesn't work maybe you should take them to the doctor, they may have something else wrong with them that needs to be adressed. UTI or something.

Remove the potty in the bedroom or they will continue to do it. That way they have no other option than to use the toilet.

Is removing the potty an option so they have to use the proper toilet???

I would make my son clean it up if he was doing it deliberately
