Stress Ball Soda

All Recipes

These stress balls harness the power of Baking Soda to craft a squishy-soft ball of stress-busting power.

Ingredients & Supplies

Yields: 1 stress ball

  • Measuring cup
  • Balloons
  • 2 cups ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda
  • ½ cup hair conditioner
  • Spoon
  • Bowl
  • Scissors
  • Funnel (made from a plastic bottle)
  • Dry erase markers


  1. Mix 2 cups of Baking Soda with about 1/2 cup of hair conditioner. (You can add more conditioner to make them squishier or less to make them firmer.)
  2. Once the ingredients are all mixed together, cut off the top end of a plastic bottle (adult supervision required). You’ll use it as a funnel.
  3. Attach a balloon to the bottle opening and fill it with your stress ball mixture.
  4. Once the balloon is full, make sure you don’t have any air bubbles, and then tie it closed. Wipe your balloon clean, and then it’s time to decorate!
