How to Make the DIY Halloween Pumpkin Stress Balls:
1. Start off by “stretching out the balloons” that you’re going to use. How do you do this? You can either just stretch them out OR blow them up a little and just get some stretch into them.

2. Now you want to get the rice (or whatever you’re using) inside the balloon! This is when you use the funnel. Position the funnel inside the tip of the balloon and then start slowing pouring in the rice. I prefer rice because it really is the easiest for me to maneuver inside the balloon.

3. Once you have the rice inside and it’s the size you prefer it to be, simply tie the balloon at the end.
