Enjoy the satisfaction of squeezing and releasing with these super fun Squishy Crafts for Kids! Lots of fun shapes that are perfect for kids & the kid at heart!
I’m sure we’ve all owned a stress ball at some point in life. You know, those little yellow balls with smiley faces which you can squeeze when stressed? I don’t know about you, but I had fun simply throwing these around when I was in a good mood!
Nowadays, we’ve got a new version of the stress ball – squishies! Yes, they’re exactly as they sound – you squish them and when you release, they bounce back to their original shape. While the function is exactly the same as a regular stress ball, the fun part about squishies is that they come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
You can of course, buy a squishy, but where’s the fun in that? Let’s go ahead and make some squishy crafts for kids and adults, which you can keep for yourself or hand out to friends at school. They’re great to play with as regular toys as well, so let’s get crafting!
