  • Next, stretch out the balloon out by blowing air into it. Then, cover the top of the plastic bottle with the end of the balloon.

  • Turn the plastic bottle upside down and squeeze! This will help get those water beads into the balloon.

  • Tie a knot and cut off any excess rubber. Secure your fidget toy by adding 2 more balloons.

  • Decorate the outside of your fidget toy with markers, googly eyes and yarn.

  • Finally, squeeze away and take your DIY fidget toy home to play.
