Helping Kids Build A Thick Skin

Wacky Sacks - Fun and Easy Kids Craft Idea By Somewhat Simple

Squeeze, throw, mold & play! For those of you with confused looks on your faces wondering what the HECK “Wacky Sacks” are, here is a little background about how they came about: My MIL recently returned from touring Europe, (I know, sad life!) and she brought home these little “stress ball” things from some vendors on the streets and she gave one to each of my kids. At first glance, they don’t look like anything special, but wait til you get your little hands on them… they are ADDICTING to play with! All week I would find one of these lying on the floor and I would begin playing with it while I watched TV or chatted with family and friends. It keeps your hands busy and it just feels FUN! But without fail, as soon as my son or daughter would see me playing with their toy, they would want it back. I found myself wanting one of my own that no one could take away from me, so the wheels in my head started turning and upon examining it I said to myself, “I can make that!” …so I did. Except I made it even BETTER! The stress balls from Europe were balloons filled with flour, and while flour is very cheap, a couple of them popped after too much use and there was flour EVERYWHERE! My creations don’t use flour. They use Play Dough. (genius, I know!) Here is a tutorial so you can make them too. Materials Needed: Play Dough 12″ latex balloons Sharpie Marker You can buy everything you need at the dollar store! Directions: Roll out your play dough into a long, thin line. (I use one tub of dough per balloon) Stretch your balloon as wide as you can and stuff the play dough inside. (Adults can do this themselves, but kids will need help with this part.) Press the filled balloon to make it flat and get as much air out as possible. Tie it off with a knot. Add a face using your sharpie. ….. and that’s it!!!

YES! So many kids today have never been told any of this...such a shame. teaching these manners starts EARLY and takes constant reinforcement. We can't hope they'll wake up one day at age 5 magically knowing how to be polite! [ /end rant.]
