So I had this idea suggested by a reader and I love it. Fill a balloon with play dough and you have a cheap and kid friendly stress ball/toy! I made one last night as a trial to take to the ball field for my almost two year old as a boredom buster. It ended up being a fight between my three little ones over who got to play with it next. Several adults also stole a turn or two 🙂
So today I am making more since we are headed on a long car ride tonight and they all three want one. Since it was so successful I decided to blog it and share with my readers. I used regular size balloons I had on hand, and some small play dough containers we got for free from kids meals lately.
I rolled the play dough into small snakes so they would be easy to stick into the balloons.
Then put it all in and tied it off.
My favorite part is that it’s air tight and if the kids want we can just cut the balloon open and get the play dough out to play with again! Also staying fresh keeps the ball from getting hard and no longer fun to play with.
Thanks for stopping by!
