clearing his plate after meals

"making the bed" (it doesn't have to be perfect but he is capable of doing it)

throwing away his own trash

picking up his toys before bed/naptime

feeding pets (you help but its his job, mine has done so since she was 2, is now 4 and its the first thing she does every morning)

i'll try to think of some more

picking up his toys, putting his dirty clothes in the hamper, brushing his hair, helping mommy with certain chores (DS loves to help unload the dishwasher, put groceries away, etc), making up his bed in the morning, put his dirty dishes in the sink...

Those were the ideas that first came to my mind!

wipe up his own messes (if he spills or drops something, it won't be perfect but at least he understands if he does it he fixes it)

help cook dinner (give him the salad and have him mix it, mix stuff before you put in oven/stove, count out however many cups of milk as you pour)

dust (put some socks on his hands, spray whatever he's "dusting" and allow him to do it)

most things he'll be doing, he won't do correct or completely right now so you'd still have to help or go back and fix it, but the "chores" are great. my daughter is 4, she loves it if i give her the swiffer and let her mop so you could consider that as well.
