Hi I have a 8 year old daughter and a 3 year old daughter what I have done is get a craft box and fill it with pritt stick, paper, glitter, die cut shapes, cards, etc (pound shops are great for all of this) also stickers or peel offs and then when you want to craft get his little kit out and ask him to make a card for someones birthday coming up or ideally now some xmas cards for his friends. I'm sure he would love to spend time with you doing what you love to do and he will be able to be really creative. Happy Crafting : )

Have you ever tried digital scrapbooking? That is how I find time - no cleanup, and it's easy to just save a layout and work on it later.

Another idea, if you'd rather stick with paper scrapbooking - set him up with a little craft table near yours and let him go to town with stickers and paper and markers. It can be something you do together. :)
