  1. We use them with our autism kids and fill the balloons with flour. I love the play dough twist. I wonder if the play dough eventully dries out.

  2. I like the idea for my 3rd grade daughter to use at school. She can hide it in her desk and when she starts stressing she can squeeze it a few times and re-focus. Thanks for this great idea.
