If you're anything like me and have accident prone kids, you'll always be chasing an ice pack.
And if your kids are anything like mine, they'll cry more about needing an ice pack than the injury itself...
I read somewhere about making ice packs filled with rice, so I thought I'd have a go.
I just got some scraps of fabric, and sewed it up, leaving a hole to fill with rice.
I just used cheapy home brand rice, filled them up about 2/3 full, then stitched up the gap, and popped them in the freezer.
If you wanted to get fancy, you could make a little slip cover for them that you can take off and pop in the wash, but for these I just ran them up in the fabric that I liked.
They're definitely something I'd recommend you try making - try a few different shapes - Long skinny ones are great for puffy eyes, or to wrap over a sprained ankle, and short fat ones are good for everyday bumps and scrapes, but you could make them in any shape that tickled your fancy... even a sweet little owl! :D
Hope you had a great weekend!
