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.
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 are our favorites to make calm down balls!
To make your halloween calm down balls, 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. There are a couple 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 play dough or corn kernels. It takes a bit of work to fill the balloons, so don’t give up if it doesn’t go quickly!

Our Halloween calm down balls have held up pretty well! My son loves to throw them on the floor hard and none of them have burst yet. His absolute favorite one is the corn starch. We keep our set on the kitchen counter in a basket!
