Applied Auntie Skills 101: Summer intensive

I have a week to hang out with my 3-year old nephew. Yay! What things can I do to make some fun shared memories, cement my status as an Awesome Auntie and lay the groundwork for interesting Skype chats after I go home?

He was under two last time we met so he doesn't really remember me. We do Skype once a month or so, but it's hard to hold his attention and sometimes he asks his Mum who I am. This is understandable of course - he's only three! - but I would like to use the brief time I have with him to form a stronger bond.
We will be in the non-Western country where his parents live as expats, which means I won't be able to take him out on adventures the way I would back home. Fun things we can do at home or while out and about with his parents are best. General 3-year-old wrangling advice is also welcome. Help me be the best long-distance auntie ever!
