School and Holidays stressing you out? Keep your cool with these fun and simple homemade stress balls. They are sure to bring the zen back to your day.
Funnel (The bigger the nipple the better)
Balloons (3- 11 inch per ball)
Place your balloon on the nipple of the funnel.
Fill the balloon with sand.
A quick tip- use a measuring cup or something with an easy pour spout. Start filling your funnel with sand.
While holding the neck of the funnel, pull and smush the balloon to get maximum amount of sand inside the balloon.
Make the balloon as big as you want, pulling and smushing as you go. Give the balloon a good shake, make sure all the sand has dropped into the funnel and release the balloon.
Pull up the end of the balloon and tie it off. (Tip: Tie a double knot)
Snip off any extra above the knot.
Your stress ball is essentially done. For extra security I suggest placing this inside another balloon. Snip of the "neck" of a second balloon, in a contrasting color if you have it.
Place your sand-filled balloon into this newly cut balloon, right over the top of the nipple.
Finally, I would take yet another balloon and repeat step 9, making this even more secure.
Try and get the "swim cap" balloon over the nipple nose.
Take your sharpie pen and go to town decorating your stressful balloon ball.
Goodbye stress! This new friend will help you keep your cool :)
