Keep your back as straight as possible. Lower your body until chest is just off the floor, but do not actually touch the floor (i.e. no "bouncing"
off floor). Also, when in lowered position, stop, hold for a count of 5, back up.
Vary the distance between your hands. (i.e. directly side by side[making a diamond/triangle with thumbs and index fingers], shoulder width apart,
wider than shoulder width apart)
Fingertip pushups (vary distance as above).
Inverted pushups (i.e. upside down against a wall, door, etc.) Very good for shoulders and lats.
Upside down pushups (on fingertips and toetips)
Slower, steady (controlled) reps will provide for more complete overall muscle tone and strength.
That ought to keep you busy for awhile.
Hope this helps
