his big on lego toys and every weekend he comes over he just has all over the place. when my husband tells him to pick it up he will say later and stall, and myself or my husband will eventually just put it away ourselves.

When he tells your husband later, he needs to tell him that it needs to be done then. That is just normal 7 year old behavior. If you don't make him do it, he's not going to. If he still doesn't do it, take something away from him. No tv. No toys for a while if you have to pick them up. Does he have a certain area in the house for his toys? That would help out some. Let him know that his toys are only allowed in that particular area of the house while he is there and they have to be picked up after he is done playing with them.
