The DIY Water Beads Balloon Fidget is a fidget toy for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They can also be used to warm up the child's handwriting or cutting skills. The length of time each balloon will last will depend on the quality of the balloon and how often it is played with. Optionally, DIY artist may try adding a second balloon over the first to provide some longevity. These balloon fidgets are not suitable for children who are mouthing toys and objects.
