Welcome back to day 2 of Back to School Week. Today I wanted to share with you a DIY that I love.
This is a super simple DIY that will save you money and save you from a big mess.
I use these flexible DIY Ice packs all the time at home and in the classroom. They’re great in the classroom because they don’t leak like actual ice and they are completely disposable. Kids can use them and then toss them.
There are many different types of ice packs that you can buy or make. But this is one of my favorite methods of making Ice packs.
Materials Needed for DIY Ice Pack
- Paper Towels
- Rubbing Alcohol
In a bowl add about two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol. The rubbing alcohol keeps the ice pack colder for longer.
(this step is optional since rubbing alcohol is toxic you may want to skip this step for young children that may place these in their mouths.)
And now your ice packs are ready for your little one at any time.
True story neither the shirt or the boo boo was planned. Jude actually got a tiny boo during the time I was preparing the ice packs.
He then went by himself to the refrigerator and grabbed his own ice pack and bent it around his wrist.
Make sure you come back tomorrow to read about fostering kids independence.
