HALLOWEEN STRESS BALLS
Head to the grocery store to pick up these easy supplies for Halloween calm down balls. You might even have everything you need to make them already.
YOU WILL NEED:
- Halloween Balloons or colored balloons & permanent marker
- Filling – Flour, Corn Starch, Baking Soda, Play Dough, Corn Kernels, or Dried Beans…
There are many possibilities and you will find the ones you enjoy using the most. These ingredients above are our favorites to make calm down balls!
HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN STRESS BALLS
STEP 1. First, you need to blow up a balloon and hold it for 30 seconds. This will help pre-stretch the balloon before you fill it.
STEP 2. There are a couple of ways to fill the balloons. You can use a funnel for fine ingredients like flour. You can also use an extra set of hands to stretch the top of the balloon to fill with materials like playdough or corn kernels. It takes a bit of work to fill the balloons, so don’t give up if it doesn’t go quickly!
