Make a game from it. We usually sing a song and pick the toys up and put it in the box. Sometimes we play who is the fastest or who can put more toys in the box in a certain time. The room is clean in a second. "Tidy-up time, tidy-up time, toys away, toys away:)"

You can also adapt the situation where if you want a toy, you have to put the one you were playing with away. Have them on a shelf where they can't reach it, until they get the hang of it. Then put it where they can. It take two weeks to make a habit. Well, maybe 4 with a boy! LOL Another thing you can do is create a chart. if they get dress, put their PJ's away, brush their teeth, etc. using stars. when they've done one item they get to put a star on it. at the end of the week they get the chose of doing something or having an hour with mommy play time, walking to a park, etc... have fun!
