Are you stressed out? If you said yes, come and make this super duper, awesome, amazing, perfect stress ball. It is super fun and you can even make it as cool as you are!

Step 1: Ingredients

1. Corn Starch

2. Water

3. Balloons

4. Funnel

Step 2: Getting Started

Start by putting one of your balloons around the funnel. You won't see this balloon at the end so I wouldn't choose your favorite.

Step 3: Corn Starch

Pour in a little bit of corn starch to give your balloon a little weight. Make sure it is only a little bit! I used scissors to push mine in but you can use anything that works.

Step 4: Water

After you have your corn starch in, add a little less water than you did corn starch.

Step 5: Mix It All Up

Once you have your water in, you are going to take the balloon off the funnel gently and massage it all together untill it feels smooth. Don't tie the balloon just yet though.

Step 6: Add Some More of Everything

Put the balloon back on the funnel and this is the part where you get to choose what to do.

a.) If you want your balloon more squishy, add more water than you do corn starch (Still add corn starch) b.) If you want your more hard, add more corn starch than you do water ( Still add water)

Step 7: Add More of Everything...... Again

Keep adding whatever it feels like it needs. (If it is too hard, add more water. If it is too watery, add more corn starch.)

Step 8: Cut

When your balloon is as full as you want it, cut off the top.

Step 9: Balloon #2

After you are done with that, get another balloon and cut the top off it too and stuff the first one in with the hole down.

Step 10: Stuff

Stuff your now 2 balloons inside another balloon with the top cut off again

Step 11: Repeat or No?

If you feel like your balloon is secure enough, you can be finished, if not, repeat step 8 or 9 again. Make sure that every time you put the hole down. Then you can wash it off (mine was a little messy)

Step 12: DONE

You can glue the top closed if you want but I didn't.

    I guess you could add more water over time but you would hve to take it all apart and put it back together but it definently wouldn't hurt.

    I have made these but did not add any water. I bet they are much better with the water. Do you have to add more water over time???
