How to make a stress ball

We have a super fun craft for you today – DIY Stress Balls!!! We have made a variation of this a couple of times already – in the past we filled them with RICE and turned them into Superhero Juggling Balls. Today, we are going to show you how to make stress balls using flour and balloons. What I really like about this balloon craft – is how colourful it is, how fun and of course how easy!! Now it is VERY important that you watch the whole video for instructions.. though this craft is easy.. there is POTENTIAL for mess if you don’t pay attention – you will see why in the video!!!

I also think that these Stress Balls make FABULOUS Father’s Day Gifts or Teach Appreciation Gifts (what teacher doesn’t get stressed now and again, right?!) and they are super thrifty to make. Simply perfect!

I think that these stress balls would also look great with some Emoji features.. just use a set of yellow balloons and add the right details and you have a fabulous Emoji craft!


How to make a Stress Ball. Fun and easy DIY Balloon Stress Balls for Father's Day or Teacher Appreciation Day. These DIY Stress Balls also make a great sensory toy #stressballs #sen #sensory #fathersday #teachers

UPDATE: Please remember that over time the balloons become brittle and WILL break. I found the odd pile of broken Stress Ball balloons and flour in our house recently. Ha. I would say the DIY Stress Balls last well for about 6 months.. and then need to be changed (unless of course you play with them a LOT then they will last 2-3 weeks).

How to make Stress Balls - a super easy DIY for kids - great as father's day gifts or teacher appreciation gifts!
