Default Ideas please for concussion patient

My 67-year-old brother sustained a severe concussion in a bicycle accident last month. He is in PT for his physical injuries, but for the concussion, is supposed to "rest" his brain periodically. I sent him a slinky which he finds to be the perfect mindless amusement, but I need to think of other things to send. Any ideas? Thanks to all who can help.

If a slinky works for him , how about those fidget spinners that were out a couple years ago

Package of cards for solitaire? Etcher Sketch if they still make them? Art paper and pencils? Those marker books and markers?

The new replacement for fidget spinners is “pop-it’s”. They are made of silicon and they are great for mindless activity.

When I had a wild, hectic day at work, I would put a Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra CD in the CD player in my car for the ride home. I found that would help me unwind.

I was out to visit my daughter and grandchildren this last week for four days. The first thing my granddaughter showed me was the Pop-its. She had a full drawer full of them and this mindless toy kept her busy for hours. I was amazed. The fidget spinners were in the next drawer.

I find putty or some other tactile manipulative a nice mindless activity.
