How to make a super squishy stress ball

If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to relieve stress, then why not try making your own stress ball? Super squishy stress balls are a great way to help you relax, and they’re also really easy to make! Just follow these simple steps:

1. Mix the ingredients

To make your own super squishy stress ball, you’ll need the mixing bowl for your Elmer’s glue, food coloring, and liquid starch. For this step, you can use any type of glue you prefer. Add the glue to the bowl, then drop in a few drops of food coloring. Add the liquid starch and mix thoroughly until the mixture becomes soft and elastic.

2. Insert the mixture into the balloon

To add the mixture to the balloon, simply insert it using a small flask and a soft or round pen. You’ll want to add more mixture until it becomes about the size of a tennis ball.

Now that you’ve added the mixture to the balloon, it’s time to close it off by tying a knot. This will keep the mixture inside the balloon so you can use it later.

3. Add the fishnet stocking

Once you have your super squishy stress ball, you can now wrap it with a fishnet stocking. Then, close it with a small button or simply tie it up. By doing this, you will be preserving the shape of the ball and adding an extra layer of scratch protection at the same time. Plus, it’ll look really cool!

You can then repeat the process until you have the desired number. Just remember to be patient and take your time with each step for the best results!

And that’s it! Your super squishy stress ball is done! Now you can start squishing to your heart’s content. If you find that your stress ball is getting too squished, you can always add more stuffing to it. But be warned – once you start squishing, it’s hard to stop! 😉
