2 year old with autism stuck on fill/dump

I've been working with a kiddo for a few weeks now who is likely on the spectrum. She has almost no words other than a few expressions such as, "uh oh." Here's the trouble: her insistence on sameness tends to manifest itself in fill/dump activities. She turns almost any activity into fill/dump. For example, she might complete a puzzle once and then will want to fill/dump the puzzle pieces all throughout her house. I'm trying to expand her play skills, but it's so hard to do when she gets stuck on that fill/dump stuff. Any activity ideas? Bubbles and a slinky went pretty well...until she threw them. Ha!
