Highchair activities for 16 month old

What are some good highchair activities for a 16 month old? We do crayons and playdough but hes still more interested in eating them or throwing eveything onto the floor.

playing with/eating different foods

percussion instruments, maybe with some music on

 a few duplo blocks, board, characters etc

stacking cups and things to put inside them

a shape sorter

a toy with buttons/levers to press e.g. to make different sounds

lift-the-flap or touch and feel books

aquadoodle

are these activities ideally ones he can do independently or with some help?

We often do paint in the highchair...either finger paint or with brushes.

Maybe set up the activities on the floor instead? ;)

Or put a basket/tub on the floor for him to drop/throw things into, then repeat...

My DD used to LOVE spooning lentils from one container to another at that age. Basically she loved digging and playing with dirt when we were out, so I tried to recreate it at home and found that lentils were a good substitute (also she couldn't choke on them if she decided to try them).
