You could get him to try different zipz on other clothing - even yours on your coat or cardigan etc. Then would next move towards other fastening do you have any cotton reels he could try to thread or perhaps just continue different types of opening and closing - lids, doors on toys and bring forward the self recognition of doing something for himself rather than the act itself.

With the paint he is realising that its alright in some circumstances to make a big mess etc?????? Perhaps that could be continued by doing the reverse and clearing up mess - tidy up time with toys or get him to be more specific with his mark making using his hands in paint?

Don't know if i am really helping but hopefully you will find something in the rambling:panic:
