How to Make Ninja Stress Balls!

How to Make Ninja Stress Balls!

These ninja balls are customizable, mashable,
and perfect for juggling. The best part is you can make them at home for practically
nothing. In this project we’re turning some flour and a bag of party balloons, into a
colorful batch of superhero stress balls. All we need to start this project is a variety
of latex party balloons, and a container like a juice bottle. This one has a wide mouth,
and you’ll see why that’s better in just a minute. Now, if we cut a common water bottle
in half, it’ll turn upside down and form a makeshift funnel. We can use this to start
filling our juice bottle with flour, and we’re going to need about 3/4 of a cup. You can
see that shaking the funnel up and down rapidly, transfers the flour into the juice bottle.
And now the next step, is to get it inside a balloon. We need to find 3 balloons that
are all the same color, and for this first one, I’m going to choose yellow. Now to
get the flour inside, simply blow a balloon and twist the neck around 4-5 times so the
air is trapped inside. Stretch the mouth of the ballon over top of the juice bottle, and
when it’s on securely, just let the balloon go. If you turn the bottle upside down and
squeeze it repeatedly, you can see the flour transfers easily, without making any mess.
Alright, let’s pinch the neck of the balloon and pull it off the bottle, so we can let
the air out, but it will be important to pinch it off again before it starts spewing out
flour dust. We still need to get as much air out of the balloon as we can, and massaging
the base will help compress the flour and move any trapped gasses to the top. At this
point you should be able to let go, and the flour will stay neatly inside the balloon.
Ok, to get ready for the next step let’s carefully clean the outside of the balloon
with a damp cloth, then slowly and carefully use a pair of scissors to cut the excess off
the top. While that’s settling down, it’s a good time to prepare the other balloons
by cutting the ends off them as well. When you pull them open, you should be able to
get all your fingers inside, and if you stretch them open wide enough to place the center
over the flour ball, then wrap it around to the underside, it’ll seal the flour inside,
and hold everything together firmly. You can remove any little ripples by pulling the edges
until it looks nice and smooth. Now if you want to make sure this never comes apart,
one option is to use a few dabs of super glue on the underside of the lip. The glue bonds
really well to rubber, and will help prevent the balloons from pulling apart. Now we can
also increase the durability by adding a couple more balloons. This makes it exponentially
stronger, and depending on how firm you want it, you can add as many layers as you want,
but try not to use less than 3. I used 4 balloons for this one, and the finishing step is to
add a black ninja mask. To form that, just make “U” shaped cuts around the edges
of a black balloon, then fold it in half so you can cut a “U” shape out of the side.
When you open it up you’ll have a hole right through the center. And putting the mask on
the ninja ball is as simple as turning the band inside out, then wrapping it around the
outside. Now try matching one of the holes on the mask with the seam on the ball, and
the seam will virtually disappear. This is really cool because most people will have
no idea how you made this. Just for fun I tried making a couple more balls with monochromatic
colors, and those ended with an awesome two tone effect. Then I made 4 solid green balls
with blue, purple, orange and red ninja masks. Now I know you can see totally see where I’m
with this. Baby ninja turtle eggs. Now check this out. If we stack them on top of each
other and push down hard, you can get a feel for how squishy they really are. Not only
that, but they’ll stick to each other as well. I tried smashing them into the ground
and was amazed by how resilient they are. And check out how they all formed different
shapes. I wonder if this could be classified as modern art. These will hold their shape
as long as you don’t mess with them too much. And if you play around with different
color combinations, you can see just how easy it is to make any superhero theme you can
think of. I tried making a whole variety of different colors, and was impressed that 1
cheap bag of flour, makes over 20 different toys. The soft rubbery texture makes them
easy to grip, so they’re actually perfect for juggling, and since they’re ridiculously
cheap to make, they’re an awesome gift for kids. Well now you know how to take a sack
of flour and handful of party balloons and convert them into squishy, superhero stress
balls. Well that’s it for now. If you liked this project, perhaps you’ll like some of
my others. Check them out at
