how about learning chess? There is a great british web site that has games, hints, curriclum and tests..https://www.chesskids.com/ and the DK books have a great how to book for kids. maybe there are some other kids he can play with in the building. start a group.
pick up guitar…or another instrument for that matter. We bought a yamaha keyboard at a pawn shop, and headphones. one of those kind that professions use that has special effects.
maybe get a mouse and get one of those mouse cages that he can change like a maze. Does anyone know what I mean? They are plastic in lots of fun colors and you screw the pieces together?
We love building sets. The erector sets are very cool and he will learn alot putting them together. or knes has solar stuff, now..
learn shortwave radio if he is able to yet? Maybe morse code?
I find at 10 and ADD, he will need a lot of different projects he can jump back and forth to. I would hold some projects back and present them down the road, too.
One of the best books I ever read was called something like the lazy way to entertain your kids. can’t remember the exact title. The idea was to start a bunch of boxes, go to yardsales. one box for legos, one for crafts, onfor games, one for baking, etc. Pretty soon you have different supplies, all organized, for fun ideas. cheap, too.
When I google for the book, I don’t get it but I found this https://www.magicalchildhood.com/crafts/lazymom.htm
anyway, HTH, elyse
