Making a homemade “stressball” with your child
For, you know, those stressful times
A wonderful parent-child activity: making stressballs (one for them, one for you?). Stressballs can help a child manage emotions. You can also make them together quickly and inexpensively.
Total materials needed:
- 1 balloon
- 1 empty water bottle
- About 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (or sand)
- 1 paper cup (or funnel)
- 1 permanent marker
