I tried to post this in the ''resources''  section but  it didn't work..?

So which are your favourite websites, blogspots , forums  etc with arts&crafts/activities that you love?

I know that there are some great sources out there but I was thinking maybe you want to update your list? (mabye some websites are down or they are not so ''creative'' anymore?

http://nurturestore.co.uk/kids-activities-aug-1

An amazing site/blog a friend just recommended .. this link leads to a page where you can register for a free weekly play planner.
Also masses of other stuff on the site from all sorts of crafts, games, messy play, play dough, sensory, maths ... and recipes for dough etc ..

Cloud Dough - http://nurturestore.co.uk/sandcastle-messy-play-homemade-cloud-dough-recipe#more-16352

4 cups of flour
1 cup of oil (we most often use baby oil, to get a lovely fragrance)
glitter is optional, but we like some extra sparkle!

All you need to do is combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix…

Do you know how long it keeps? Like if I was to make it today would it still be good to use on Tuesday? X

I haven't made this one, but with all play dough I make I keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. Keeps for ages then.

Just found this on The Imagination Tree .. same/similar recipe - http://theimaginationtree.com/2012/01/glitter-cloud-dough-beach-sensory-tub.html

Are there any great indoor play for infants (8 months old)? Besides: play doh, touchy feely basket (which I think is great), water play (again great, even I get excited when I put a bath ball in my tub...didn't do it for years though...), finger painting?
I just had a look at a lot of websites and some ideas were great but I would like more.

Did you check the imagination tree? I can't think of any website that could have more ideas than this one for any age really.

I did. And I just typed what I wanted in Google also but I know from the past that sometimes you are searching for something and doesn't come up and then you search for another thing and you have a great website coming up even though it didn't before.
The problem is that most of the baby play is messy play like spaghetti play or frozen jam and the mother of the child is not into this. She doesn't want her baby to play with food or get dirty! She says this is food wasting.

She'll get crazy when s/he starts to crawl or eat by him/herself!

How about put things in bottles to make different shakers? For example some bells, some water and glitter (don't fill up to the top), some pompoms, some water and soap, even small toys or marbles. Just make sure lid is really tight so s/he can't open it.

There are also cubes to stack up, nursery rhymes with sins work well...

Yeap, singing, rhyming, reading stories. She doesn't have many toys....so this is why I am trying to come up with some things. The bottle with stuffs inside is great and I've seen different ones on websites. Also with plastic bags but this is bit tricky because is dangerous if the child is left alone! So I am searching for something that would keep her occupied but nothing dangerous: like a book or something that makes noise. I am always afraid that the child could hurt himself even with a simple toy...
