So this afternoon when it was pouring down with rain we decided to make our own stress balls.
This is the perfect activity for Winnie Whilwind, as she loves any sort of sensory play and this is sensory by the bucketful, involving endless squidging and squeezing. Even sixteen year old Sammy Skateboard couldn’t resist this one.
All you need is play dough, balloons and permanent markers.
To add to the sensory fun we made our own play dough using the Imagination Tree’s recipe.
Give the play dough a good squish and roll it in to very thin sausages.
Feed the sausages in to your balloon, squidging and squeezing it as you go.
Once your balloon is in place squash and squeeze it again to remove the air and tie a knot
Now get creative and draw you face
Simple! You know have a stress ball that will keep fidgety hands happy for hours (well hopefully J)!
