My MIL recently returned from touring Europe, (I know, sad life!) and she brought home these little “stress ball” type of things from some vendors on the streets. She gave one to my 6 year old son and 1 to my 3 year old daughter. At first glance, they don’t look like anything special, but wait til you get your little hands on them… they are ADDICTING to play with!
All week I would find one of these lying on the floor and begin playing with it while I watched TV or chatted with family and friends. It keeps your hands busy and it just feels FUN! But without fail, as soon as my son or daughter would see me playing with their toy, they would want it back. I found myself wanting one of my own that no one could take away from me, so the wheels in my creative brain started turning and upon examining it, I said to myself, “I can make that!” …so I did. Here is a tutorial so you can make them too.
