In The Pursuit Of Craftiness: Anti Stress Kit

It seems like I have been coming across a lot of people feeling stressed lately whether it is from work, school, family, wedding planning, you name it. So, I thought it would be nice to do a post for an Anti Stress Kit. Honestly, this is so simple to do it probably shouldn't be classified as a "craft" since all you need are a few supplies and a thoughtful mood.


  1. Paper bag
  2. A hole punch and paper (to make confetti)
  3. Pennies
  4. Rubberbands
  5. An Eraser
  6. Snickers
  7. Starburst
  8. Hershey Kisses
  9. Marbles (unfortunately I couldn't find any but if you can, add them)
  10. Something to write with
List each item on the bag and what they can be used for to reduce stress:
  • Eraser: To make all your mistakes disappear.
  • Pennies: So you will never be broke.
  • Rubberbands: To help you stretch beyond your limits.
  • Starburst: To give you a burst of energy at the end of the day.
  • Marbles: To replace the ones people say you've lost.
  • Snickers: Laughter is the best medicine.
  • Confetti: When you feel like throwing something.
  • Kisses: To always remember that someone cares.
Just toss all of the items in the bag and give it to your sweetheart, friend, co-worker etc. It's a little corny and  won't relieve any serious stress but I do think it will put a smile on the face of a person you care about.
