Are you stressed out at work? Need something in your hand just to vent your frustration? Why not make a stress ball on your own?
A squishy ball can be an awesome stress reliever, while also helping tone the muscles in your forearms and hands. Just keep a couple of squishy stress balls at your workplace or near the nightstand, and you can use them anytime you feel stresses or frustrated. Venting your frustration on a person is never helpful, so you might as well vent it out on these geek toys. Though you could buy one at any store, making it at home is actually very simple, and a great project, especially with your kids. Here are a couple of things that you will need for making a squishy stress ball:
- One and half cups of sand
- A fine sieve
- A bowl
- A funnel
- A water balloon
So now that you got all the ingredients ready let’s make a squishy stress ball. Sift all the sand through a fine sieve into the bowl. Next place the funnel at the mouth of the water balloon, and pour the sand into the balloon. Do not spill any sand on the floor. Tie the mouth of the water balloon tightly once the sand fills up the balloon. If the sand seems insufficient, sieve some more and pour it into the water balloon. You could even personalize it with a colored ribbon, or decorate to make your personal squishy stress ball. It might seem just like other geek toys, but it is a great stress reliever.
