Star sticker rewards. This will also work for other things. If he picks up toys, he is rewarded with a star. At the end of the week, the reward is an activity or something they would like to have.

Not sure how old Sam is, but with my 18 month old I've turned clean up into a game. You an sing the "clean up" song, you can race to see who can pick up the most toys fastest. You can clap and praise Sam and he picks up his toys and puts them away. But mostly they learn from example so you might have to help him along with the clean up part until he figures it out. Some days it works and others it doesn't.
