How to Make

  1. Use a funnel to pour lots of beads into an empty water bottle.
  2. Blow up a clear balloon, and hold the end so it stays blown up. Then pull the end of the balloon over the top of the bottle.
  3. Carefully turn the bottle upside down, whilst holding the neck of the balloon so it stays on the bottle. Then pour the beads into the balloon.
  4. Hold the neck of the balloon and remove it from the bottle. Then slowly deflate the balloon until there is no air left inside.
  5. Tie a tight knot in the neck of the balloon.

Top Tip

The more beads you add, the bigger your stress ball will be.
