Homemade Stress Ball




Introduction: Homemade Stress Ball

Ingredients: 1 cup Flour, 1/2 cup Salt, 1/2 cup Warm Water, 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil, 2 Glass Mixing Bowls, Food Coloring, 1 Medium Sized Balloon, 1 piece Wax/Parchment paper, 1 spoon.

Step 1: Bowl 1 Mix

Mix the 1/2 cup of salt with the 1 cup of flour.

Step 2: Bowl 2 Mix

In a separate bowl bowl, pour warm water and add 3-4 drops of food coloring. Mix.

Step 3: Bowl 2 Add Oil

Add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil. Mix.

Step 4: Mix Ingredients Gradually

Gradually add the contents from Bowl 2 into Bowl 1 while mixing.

Step 5: Knead

Knead the mixture until you have the right consistency. It should not be too sticky. Add flour to reduce "stickiness." Add water to increase "stickiness."

Step 6: One More Coat

Put a light amount of flour onto a sheet of wax/parchment paper, then knead the mixture once more.

Step 7: Spoon Out Your Ball

Using a spoon or a knife or your hands make a portion that fits nicely into the palm of your hand.

Step 8: Stuff the Dough

Using your hands or most easily a syringe with a wide tip, stuff the mixture into the medium sized balloon.

Step 9: Tie the Knot

Tie the end of the balloon nice and tight so that your mixture stays put.

Step 10: Relieve Stress the Healthy Way

Squeeze until the stress be gone :)
