Discipline for one specific behavior!!

My DH and I are having a problem breaking my 6 and a half year old DD from picking up her 3 year old sister. We are talking about carrying her around the room, and helping her do hand stands and such. We have tried, time outs, taking away the iPod, taking away tv, grounding her, keeping her from her dance and gymnastics lessons, spanking and even picking her up to see if she likes it....nothing. Today alone she has been punished 4 times for this offence AND 3 times this week she has injured her sister while picking her up!!!  ANY suggestions on how to get through to her NOT to pick up her sister would be appreciated.
