22 month old with broken leg

My very active DS broke his leg at soft play, his fibia/shin bone. He has a thigh to ankle cast on for 6 weeks. He's doing really well and is already crawling, dragging his leg along. But it's now week 3 and we are both going a little crazy for ideas as to what to do as our usual swimming twice a week is out, and he gets frustrated at walks in the woods and the park as he can't go exploring. Help me please MNers!

Can you travel to a farm/ zoo?
Feed ducks somewhere from pram
Museums
Library
Basic Baking at home - sit him at table
Playdough
Get a megasketcher
Watercolour paints
Can you carry on with walks in woods and parks but some new ones? Or walks in pram around supermarket let him help hold stuff

You can buy waterproof cast protectors online, would they be any help do you think?
