Try and introduce quiet time into your day where he plays with building blokes without mummy or with other toys. You can not keep him amused 24/7 you must be knackered. My daughter knows at 10.30 mum has a cup of tea and she has to either play on her own with her toys or snuggle up on the sofa until I have finished my tea. it is a skill to be able to amuse yourself. I would start with the building blokes and get your cuppa and tell him that mummy is tired and she is going to sit down with a drink for a while. Can you make me a rocket and let him sit and build what he wants. If he starts to scream totally ignore him or place him on the naughty step and tell him again mummy is tired and she is going to drink her tea when you can be quiet you can come and build a rocket, then walk away. When his screams do not get the reaction he wants he will stop.

As I said try and make it part of your daily routine.
