Homemade Stress Ball

Super simple craft for a homemade stress ball made out of a balloon. Added scent to make it aromatherapy. 


  • Balloons
  • flour or cornstarch
  • funnel
  • scoop
  • scented essential oil (optional)


Using the funnel place your balloon over the small part. Scoop 1/4 cup of flour into the balloon to start with. Add a little bit more at a time to get the right consistency. If you want your balloon to be scented, add a few drops into the opening. Once your balloon has reached your desired consistency knot the opening. 

If you chose to take the marker and decorate the outside of your balloon with your desired design.
