Think that most kids are used to draw the outlines of the shapes and then paint the areas. However, in this activity the kid has to work in a completely different way. He has to fill certain boxes with colors, in order to make the image appear. 

You can start from something simple, such as nature landscapes, trees, houses or some flowers. 
You can also do some search on the web about pixel art. You'll realise that pixel art is associated with computer games and heroes such as Mario Bros and others, things that young boys might find intriguing.
