The weather has turned, and we are beginning to get stuck indoors more and with that tensions seem to rise. What was once easy to brush off becomes a little harder as we are all in each other’s space. Recently, the kids reminded me of stress balls. I remember using up all of mum’s rice when I was in primary school to make them they were so much fun so I decided to make them with the kids. This time we used flour for some and rice for others to enjoy a different sensory experience. The kids couldn’t get enough of them until my rice supply put a stop to their fun. If you’re after something to do on a cold winter afternoon then grab a few basics and give these a go.
What you need:
- Rice and or flour
How to make a stress ball
- Get everything you need on a table. Cut the top and bottom off a balloon so it looks like this;
- Insert the funnel end into a normal balloon and fill with either flour or rice.
- Tie the balloon up with a knot.
- Then using the cut balloon, place it over the filled balloon so it covers the knot for a little more added protection.
You’re done, now enjoy squeezing the ball when it all gets too much or just because you like the feel of it.
