Make anti-stress ball yourself – instructions
For our anti-stress ball you need:
- 2 small balloons
- Filling material of your choice: flour, rice or fine sand
- Plastic bottle (eg of mineral water) or a funnel
- A smudge-proof marker, wool and glue (as desired)
And how is crafting done? First take the empty plastic bottle and fill it with some flour, rice or sand (the amount of material depends on the desired size of the ball). You can help yourself with a funnel or a rolled-up paper. It is important that the amount of filling material is not too small – the excess flour, rice or sand can be easily removed, but filling the balloon later is a bit more difficult. You could also mix rice with flour to get a medium degree of firmness for the ball. Now you should blow the balloon and put it over the opening of the bottle, so that the air can not escape from it. Then gently invert the bottle so that the chosen filling falls into the balloon by itself. For an anti-stress ball that fits comfortably in the hand, you should fill the balloon about 5 to 7cm high (for this you need about 2/3 of a cup of filler). When you’re done, gently and slowly pull the neck of the balloon away from the bottle. Hold the opening well with your fingers so that the flour does not fly everywhere. You can – by holding the neck of the balloon, knead the ball a little to check whether the capacity is sufficient. If so, carefully drain off the excess air and knot well the neck of the balloon. Cut off the excess rubber, and you’re done! Now you can decorate your anti-stress ball as desired with some glue and wool or with a smudge-proof marker!
