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

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.
