DIY Stress Ball

It seems like this time of year is stressful! Between paying taxes, state tests for my kids, deadlines, you name it, there is stress. My daughter loves stress balls from the $1 store or the $1 section at Target so I thought it would be fun to make. These DIY stress balls are a great activity to do with kids and work great!

DIY Stress Balls

*1 bag of Water Beads

*bowl of water

*Water bottle or funnel

*clear balloons

To start this you will need to take a spoon full of water beads and put them in a bowl of water. This will take about 6 hours for the water beads to grow. If you have impatient kids then you might want to do this on your own! My daughter (age 9) loved doing this with me. She kept checking the bowl ever hour and it was fun to see them grow!

Watch our video on how to make the rest! Once the beads are ready to go the process takes less than 5 minutes. It’s fun for all ages and I even use one too 🙂

Do you think you might make this DIY Stress Ball?  Tell me in the comments!

Have some stress in your life? Make this stress ball at home with water beads. Great activity to do with kids!
