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:
Step 2: Stretch the Balloon
Using your mouth or a pump blow air into the balloon so that it inflates and stretches. Let the air out of the balloon.
Step 3: Fill It With Flour
Using your funnel fill the balloon with flour. Make sure to be holding the end of the balloon tightly to avoid a mess. Stop putting flour in the balloon when it reaches the neck. Don't fill the neck. Tie the into a knot to stop the flour from getting out of the balloon.
Step 4: Avoid a Disaster
Take another balloon (it may be of a different color, the final result will not be affected) and cut most of the neck of using scissors. Stretch the second balloon over the first one as a second layer. The second layer will help prevent the dispersion of flour all over the place in the event a hole would appear.
Step 5: Enjoy
You may now fully enjoy your fabulous flour stress ball in any way you could possibly imagine.
If you do not have an imagination, you will unfortunately be forced to use it solely as a stress ball.
