If your kid is even remotely interested in painting, then let him pursue his hobby.  Let him paint his imagination.  Painting will keep him engrossed and also develop his creativity.

Indoor Treasure Hunt:

Treasure hunts are fun and exciting.  You can organize one at your home.  Make some nice codes and clues which will lead to other clues and finally to the treasure.  Also, make sure that the treasure/gift is something that your kid likes and desires.

Play Pillow Fight:

This idea may sound silly to some.  To those people, I would just say "Remember Your Childhood".  We all enjoyed pillow fights as kid, infact I still enjoy it and your kids will enjoy it too.  Just play pillow fight with your kid and see the delight on his face.

Making Scrapbook:

Scrapbooking is very popular activity among kids and it is fun activity too.  You can help your kid in making a family scrapbook.  Just provide him with all the pictures and materials and guide him.  These scrapbook will be a lifetime memory that you will always cherish.

Book Reading:

Not many kids will like the idea of book reading, but it can be a good summer activities for kids at home.  Start with a nice picture story book or you can also inculcate the habit of book reading by reading the stories to him.

Bananagrams is one of the best new games available for sure! I enjoyed your list and we will have a huge pillow fight the next time the grands spend the night!
