tactile, ages 4+
- Balloons (2 per fidget)
- Dried beans
- Small Funnel that fits your beans (sports water bottle tops work well)
These therapeutic stress balls are fun to assemble and satisfying to manipulate. Make as many as you’d like for your family — and to share with others to help them calm their anxieties during this challenging time. Talk together while you’re creating the fidgets: How can we use a fidget to help us find our inner peace? How can talking about our own feelings help us be more understanding of others?
