I make it part of our night time routine, before bathtime we pick up all toys, sometimes she starts without me. I find that if you keep it consistant and part of the routine, it wll just happen ;)

I started out by making it a game that my son and I did together. We would race to see who could put away the most toys. I always made a big, fun deal of it so he would not think of it as a chore... and he always "won".

I find the easiest way is to pick up with them. Give them a toy and show them where they need to put it, but also have a toy yourself that goes in that area. She will catch on pretty quickly. The challenge may come in trying to keep her excited about picking up.
