In this instructable I will describe the excessively simple way to make your own functional stress relieving device. (It is also great for juggling)

Note: The device is not restricted to be used as a stress ball only. You may also use it for amusement, to throw at things (such as burglars), as a christmas/birthday present, for practical jokes, as a keychain, to pretend it's fruit, to sell, to launch into space, to juggle or any other use you can think of.

Step 1: What you'll need

Although the materials necessary for this project do seem difficult to find, you will be suprised to learn that they can be found in most households.

You will need the following:
-party balloons
Can you use anything besides ballons?
Yes you can use rice
<p>Zhara_100.....rice will NOT work as a substitue for balloons!!!</p>
I used a totall of 9 baloons and made 3 balls these are perfect for juggling
<p>FAIL! The flour isn't going thru the funell all the way.</p>
use the back end of a pen or pencil(not a clicker pen... one with a cap.)
Although i only used 1 balloon... Used a pen to stab the flour through the funnel (the back end of course lol)
Works awesomely
<p>I really liked it!!!</p>
<p>thank you this was fun to make with my 17 year old son</p>
<p>I made this and it worked perfectly, Thanks!</p>
<p>i tried it and works amayzing i love thank you so much</p>
<p>im not sure if it will work for me cause im terrible at diys but i keep on trying so if i mess up ill try again</p>
<p>I had a hard time acctually. By ballon, either exploded or popped off!</p>
<p>I love stress balls they're so fun to sqeeze!</p>
Easy Peazy!!
sooooo cool!
I loved this project! I made one and can't keep my hands off it!
Pretty cool. Im doubting it would hold up to the household pet : ) Just trying to use my imagination. Im going to try this one for sure! Neat idea.
<p>Maybe you could fill it with peanut butter so when your pet breaks into it, it gets a little snack!</p>
<p>I would strongly advise you didnt do this, the pet could accidentally eat the balloon and choke to death.</p>
Maybe if you added a few more layers it could hold a bit, though it depends on the size of the pet.
and the sharpness of their teeth! Btw very funny ible! you made my day.
<p>You copied this off of the King of Random, unless you are tkor. I highly doubt that, though</p>
<p>Check the publish dates on this vs. kor's video ;)</p>
<p>still a fun project, works well with water balloons, you need to try REALLY hard though</p>
<p>nice, I love the idea, I*m trying to make a flour grenade with this idea thanx!</p>
Does anyone know if rice would work??
<p>Yes, it does work with sugar. I used caster sugar (super-fine sugar in the USA) and it worked fine. I actually found play sand works best, but I have yet to try it with flour using a proper funnel. </p>
Does it work with sugar?<br>
You could not tie it and drop it on people and put ur money in there and put another balloon on top
Just so you know, the best way to fill these is to put the flower into a bottle, blow up the balloon, put it around the neck of the bottle and turn it upside down. Once its all in just take the balloon off and let it deflate.
if ur not careful itll blow all the flour out<br>
...So be careful :-)
<strong>brilliant thanks for the bottle tip-avoid mess!</strong>
Very nice! I just made a purple one. I didn't have flour so I used corn starch instead. I hope that is ok to do. I saw one of these earlier today in a gift shop. You just saved me $4! Thanks! :D
I need to now if these are usefull because I'm trying to get rid of bad habits in general. I play with my hair and will some times rip it out. I'm starting to grow bald spots and fiddling with something does'nt work for me.
my cousin maid these before they where awesome. I think I'm going to make some for my speech class because I'm writing a speech about stress and this is sooo cheep to make. the dollar store has it all. this is really awesome.
I&nbsp; am going to put some yarn on it for hair and put a face on it with a marker!
Something I thought of. I'm a bit hamfisted with things and in the process of breaking one of the normal squeezy bean-filled stress balls I noticed that it was 2-ply. I think this would probably be well served by using two nested balloons.
GAH! i tried making one with a water balloon... and the balloon slipped: it became a fountain of flour... in my EYE!!! and all over my shirt (which has a face of me on it, so you could technically say my face was hit twice by the flour) XD well, I learned! :D
Very cool!, I made one and it was great! I kinda put too much flour in so its like pretty big. I found another way to put more flour in, when its up to the neck, blow the balloon up a bit more and release air slowly, then there is more space. I did this too many times and it got too big:) thanks for the great instructable!
stress ball is for people isn't it? nice job on this...i like it.
Haha nice! I put shampoo in mine!
why shampoo?
