Activity 2
Make a Stress Ball
Discuss stress – what is it? What causes it? How can we deal with it?

• Working in pairs, the girls blow up the balloon and leave it untied.
• Slowly fill the funnel with flour, letting it enter the balloon.
• Fill the balloon to about 8 cm
• Squeeze out the excess air
• Tie the balloon as close to the flour as you can
• Cut off any excess balloon
• If it seems thin, cover with a second balloon
• Write name in permanent marker
• When both Guides have their stress ball ready, let them play with it!

Finish with a short relaxation exercise
