well it depends on what he is interested in, and whether you are willing to get messy? i like to get the waterbased crayola paints, put them on a plate, and get some construction paper, and just let the kid go at it! my baby is too young but with my husbands nephews, they love it, just leave a diaper on and nothing else, and do it in the kitchen or outside, it is easier to clean up....also, depends on if you let him indulge in the occasional treat, but what if you bake a cake or cookies or somehting, and let him ice and decorate with candy sprinkles whatever? and eat what he makes? a healthy alternative is to use applesauce instead of oil in cake mixes, just substitute the exact amount it is asking in oil for the applesauce!
