She can remember. She is just not motivated too because you pick up after her and she doesnt have to remember on her own.

Maybe we need more structured coloring time then its over for the day and put it away? IDK. For now I explained she cannot be trusted with markers and put them away and on the top shelf where she cannot reach them. SIGH....
Start collecting toys and make them earn it back. Like this...
and start decluttering your house and getting down to only those things that they actually play with so there is less items to begin with.
