Kayleigh's Crafts - Make Your Own Stress Ball


Today we're a straw bracelet, but the same method can be applied to make a necklace too. 

To make these yourself, have a look at our YouTube video or follow this step-by-step guide.  

    You will need:

    • Balloon
    • Rice
    • Funnel/Measuring Jug
    • Sticky Tape (optional)

    Step 1:

    Stretch out your balloon. 

    Take the neck of your balloon and wrap around the sticky tape so make the opening of your balloon a bit easier to access (this is optional, but can help!). 

    Take your funnel/measuring jug and begin to pour your rice into the balloon. Pour a little bit at a time and make sure the rice is in the body of the balloon and not the neck.

    If you have rice in the neck of the balloon, shake and wiggle it down so it sits in the body. 

    Make sure not to over fill your balloon, as this could cause your balloon to burst!

    Step 2:

    Once your balloon is full, tie a knot or 2 into the top of your balloon to secure. 

    When you're done... 

    Have a think about some other things you could fill your balloon with. What about flour or porridge? 


    We would love to see your finished crafts!
