How to Make a Stress Ball

Oobleck stress balls are really a wonderful item to give you relief from your stress. They are usually made of some household ingredients and can take both solid and liquid. Isn’t that great? The solid form is obtained when you squeeze the ball, and when you let it go, it will take a liquid form. This is how it can give you great relief from your most stressful moments. But do you know how to make oobleck stress ball? 

As I have said earlier, these balls can be easily made with some household items of your house, and the process of making these balls are relatively easy. If you are really willing to make one, I am here to show you the exact ways. But before I start the process, I will suggest you leave all your tasks for a couple of minutes and concentrate on this article until it ends.

How to Make a Stress Ball

Step 1:

First of all, you will need an empty water bottle. We will put the flour int this, and to make this easier, let’s just make a little cone out of paper. Stick a tape at the edges and then cut off the end. Now, place it in the bottle and add your flour. You might need to shake a bottle a bit to get the flour in.

Step 2:

Next, we will stick a balloon over the bottle. So, take a half to inflate the balloon and stick it over the top of the bottle. Tip the bottle upside down and shake all the flour inside. Once it is done, take it off the bottle and slowly blink all the air out. Then seal off the end, and that’s it; your simple, little stress ball is ready.

How to Make Oobleck Stress Ball

Step 1:

First of all, take a jug and put some cornflour into it. Add some water and stir it consistently. Oobleck is actually a liquid until you heat it. In this case, you might need to add a little bit more cornflour into it. The consistency will make it hard to stir, but when you lift up a lump, it will become a liquid. So, keep stirring until you get the right consistency.

Add Some Water and Stir

Step 2:

Next, pour the mixture inside of a bottle. Just pour enough to make the ball you want to make.

Step 3:

Next, attach another balloon with the top of the balloon. Make sure to use half inflate balloons like the previous step. Then lie that upside down and let the liquid run inside. You may need to shake the bottle a little bit so that the liquid can pour in properly. Once that’s done, take the balloon out of it. Then just release the air until the oobleck just starts to come out. Now, we just tie off the end. This time the ball will be a little bit different.

If you squish it really quickly, it will go hard. But if you just squish it softly or slowly, it will just stay in this liquid form. It is a lot of fun to play with, but this is like a hard spreadable.

How to Make a Foam Stress Ball

Step 1:

For this, you will need another water bottle and a balloon. We are gonna use the color again, and we will put some beanbags into the bottles. If you don’t have a beanbag, you can make the readymade versions of them. It will cost you 1 dollar only.

Step 2:

Once you complete filling the bottle with them, put a half inflate bottle on the top of the bottle. And then turn the bottle upside down to fill the balloon with the beanbags. Give it a shake; just you have done in the earlier steps.

 Use Water Bottle  and a Balloon

The amount of the beanbags usually depends on the size of your ball that you want to make. Larger balls will need more beanbags, and smaller ones need a smaller amount. Okay, once you complete filling the balloon, release the air and seal of the end. That’s it; your foam stress ball is ready to use now.
