how much do you play with your toddler?

my son is 17 months and i call him the tornado! i try to spend time just playing with him, singing, clapping, dancing, but his interest is in everything else. he wont play with toys long before tossing them, i try to get him to color but he just likes to run off with the crayons so he can eat them lol. the only time my son is not ripping my house apart is when he is in his room behind the gate. i feel terrible because i dont want him to watch a lot of tv but its the only thing he will actually do and like. he loves to be outside but each time we go out we have to run back in because of bees and yellow jackets, and i am often too busy shuttling the family back and forth, workin etc to get to the park everyday. what can i do to spend time having fun with him?
