Ever have a day when you’re just really stressed out? Have a paper due that you haven’t even started? Had a text war with someone that you want to punch in the face? Instead of turning to unhealthy methods of stress relief (having a cigarette, downing a beer), try making one of these easy and colorful stress balls that you can squish whether you’re in a stressful environment with friends, a lover, or at work with difficult coworkers.
All you’ll need is Orbeez, the small colorful balls that grow when they are put inside of water, and a transparent balloon as well as some water.
First, empty the pack of Orbeez into a bowl of water and wait for them to expand into small bubbles, and then place them into an empty water or soda bottle.
Take an uninflated balloon and place it over the lid of the water bottle (a clear one is pretty so you can see the colorful little bubbles inside!), and empty the Orbeez from the bottle into the balloon.
Finally, just tie up the balloon and voila! You have your own stress ball.
This colorful stress reliever is perfect for keeping on your desk at work, and small enough to be hidden in a bag for stressful situations (like going to the doctor’s office for a test). For more information, or to watch the steps slowly, you can turn to the video below.
