I am lucky enough in this context.. my daughter always keep her toys neatly at their place after playing.. don't know how she develop this habit at the age of just 3nhalf .. may be because we are living jointly and she observe everyone keeping their stuff properly at place...

Shikha, When my son was very little, I used to label all the toy boxes and the pull out racks with stickers. Such as Lego picture, animal toys, hero factory, puzzle stickers, blocks stickers etc. Since he couldn't read at the age of 2, he could put them away by seeing the stickers. I also used to join him in cleaning up as I didn't want him to feel overwhelmed. But the only rule we used to have is that before taking a toy / book, the other toy /book/art supplies with which he played/used before should get cleaned up first. Gradually it became a habit. Another important thing is to have a designated place for everything so children will gradually learn where to put them away. For me maintaining the book shelf is always a challenge as I keep them in an order. But since he reads a lot , i can live with it.
