Post Babysitting a teenager with down syndrome

Hi, I am currently a student studying special education. I currently accepted a job "babysitting" a first year high school student everyday after school for a few hours everyday. I have been trying to find activities that we can do while I am with him that is intellectually/developmentally stimulating and overall fun. Since it is getting cooler outside here I want activities we can do inside. I have never worked with a child with down syndrome, only autistic children, so if you have any additional information that you would want someone to know who was watching your child, I welcome it. I just want my time with him to be valuable and fun.

Thanks
