How to Make a Stress Ball
These are so easy, let’s get started…
Start by blowing air into the balloon and secure it around the end of the funnel.
Next, take and hold the balloon in place around the end of the funnel and start slowly pouring the flour, sand, or moon dough into the funnel. Use your fingers to press the mixture down into the balloon, softly shaking the funnel to loosen the dough, flour or sand down. Be careful here, it can get a little messy.
Continue adding the flour/dough/sand to the balloon until it is filled, then remove the funnel. Tie a knot at the top of the balloon and decorate with a bow using the ribbon.
