I wanted to share with you how to make an ice pack out of water and rubbing alcohol. I am always looking for a great way to make my own ice packs. My son likes creativity over frozen peas 🙂 My friend Robin told me about this nifty way how to make an ice pack out of water and rubbing alcohol. You take a latex or non latex glove and fill it with 1/2 water and 1/2 rubbing alcohol then tie the glove off and place in your freezer.
How to make an ice pack out of water and rubbing alcohol
The water will freeze but not rock hard/solid. You will get a "slushy" hand that is perfect for "boo-boo's". We tried it and it works like a charm. Now we have a "frozen hand" in our freezer at any given time and when we are in need of an ice pack, we are set! I always take an ice pack to soccer. The kids are going to think this frozen hand is really cool. In fact I may try adding a couple drops of food coloring inside just for fun.
This will come in handy for injuries and one day when he has his wisdom teeth removed.
