Are there any activities he could link to a local need?
-cards for young cancer patients
-knitting booties, making hats for preemies/NICU babies
-growing herbs for local soup kitchen
-coloring cards or motivational mini-posters for first responders
-making sock toys for shelter dogs

Other ideas:
-Lego or Duplo building challenges
-old school games from their youth: jacks, marbles, card flipping
-marble runs-they could design and make their own on paper plates, pizza boxes, etc.
-getting local choirs, bands, magicians, etc to perform
-if there's a nearby college, seeing if any students in social work, elder care, education, etc would like to come visit once a week
-If they are physically able, how about dance lessons or chair yoga?
-Wii Rock Band- I bet a local Walmart or Target might donate or discount what you need
