Look at the fitloop site. Lots of great videos and workouts there. Also, bodybuilding.com has great recommended exercises and you can filter by the equipment you have available (None will get you the bodyweight ones). I find sparkpeople a little light on engaging resistance training workouts.

Lots of great ideas here. Yoga and calesthlenics are great.

You could do yoga, modifying to elbow instead of wrist add mentioned for the plank type poses. Squats, lunges, calf raises, balancing exercises for the core. Listen to the Dr and try for a physical therapist to build back up after you are out of the splint.

Google body weight exercises. If you take a squat down, super slow, hold and rise you are using muscles under tension. You will still get results without the bar. Anything you do like that will get results
If you're in a splint, I'd talk to your doctor first before holding any kind of weights in your hand or using your hand to support yourself in any body weight exercises. The only exercise that I can think of that doesn't use hands at all is squats/wall sits. To push the intensity of the walking, you could carry a weighted backpack. Hope you heal soon!
