Back garden, wall and ball? Left/right, twice off his bad side for every one off his good side.
You could do drills like pick up, drop, pick up, drop, pick up, drop, turn, repeat.
Could you mark a few "goals" on the wall for him to aim at?

Good on you keeping the game going in Monaghan.

Exactly that. Don't be doing exercises like I seen a guy on Instagram have his soon do. Banded squats, pulling tyres, etc. Ridiculous and no need for a kid to be doing.

Getting plenty of touches of the ball is the main thing.

Maybe a little bit of running too just to get some stamina. Nothing crazy like the others here have already pointed out.
