Keep visiting his room after regular time interval so that he can feel that you are also involved with him. You can also provide him some old household stuff so that he can enjoy his play better.
2. Art with colors and vegetables
You can use newspaper for this purpose and spread them all around the table.
Now ask your baby to dip his fingers in the painting color and make different papers on the newspaper. This is quitean interesting concept that can keep your baby occupied for several hours. Don’t forget that colors should be non toxic and hygienic. You can also use potato and okra for printing out more interesting patterns.
