Hi, my daughter is nine months old and loves craft time. We spend about an hour everyday doing arts and crafts. I am running out of ideas so I was wondering if there are any other moms that have craft time, that may have some ideas.

Spaghetti play,
Jelly play,
Squirty cream play
Slippery silk- this is cornflour and water (also known as gloop)
play dough,
Sand play
Water play
Treasure basket. This is a basket containing everyday touchy feely objects. E.g, brush, fur, bark, sea shells, crinkly paper, sponges, scourers, etc.
hand/feet painting,
finger painting,
as long as you have things cut out and ready she loves pasting paper, foam and noodles

These are a few of the things I have done with my baby. We use food products because she likes to eat everything at this age. but if you don't want to play with food then you can use water and food coloring as paint as well.

Thank you so much Christina. I never would have thought of any of these. I think my son would enjoy these types of crafts. I know you were looking for new craft ideas for yourself but you have really given me the ideas.

Really appreciate your help!

I just watch her real close to make sure she is not eating anything, but she has a blast.

Thanks Christina! I do find this interesting. I have a 10 month old son and I never thought he would be albe to do crafts at this age.

Hi Christina, I don't have any craft ideas but was wondering what types of craft you do with your daughter now. I have a 9 month old boy. Thanks!
