Zoe is in MIDDLE school. For real! The baby of four is growing up so fast. She has been for the first two days but next week will be her first full FIVE day week complete with starting track and Girl Scouts. We talked about stress management today and she asked if we could make stress balls. The fun activity turned into this with just a few balloons, plain rice and Sharpie markers.
Making them together was super fun. We gathered supplies. Our yellow balloons are from Amazon and the rice is just plain old white rice. We have family Sharpie markers so they are always fun to use!
A trick we learned is to blow the balloon up first to expand it and then fill it with the rice. Put enough rice in to form a ball.
After the rice is added, tie the balloon closed. The last step was to decorate the balloon stress balls into emojis. YAY for these fun faces.
Zoe made sure it will fit in her pencil box!
She decided to give some as gifts too which means getting out her custom stamp from Expressionery.
She decided on a set of three as the gift so her friends can practice juggling too!
Cheers and Happy Being Stress Free,
