Use kids art to make handmade heating pads - simple and makes a great gift.
I just heard about this at physical therapy! Homemade Ice packs: 1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water, gets really cold, but never hardens so you can manipulate it. every athlete (or mom) should pin this!
Rice Bag warmer - Make one for every bed in your home. Heat this in the microwave before going to bed, and you'll have a non-electric way to climb into a warm, cozy spot. If you use enough rice ( 3 or more pounds), it will stay warm all night long. I make two "pillowcases" from tea towels. Place the rice bag inside one and then the other from the other direction. This keeps it nice and clean, and the pillowcases may be washed easily. It works well to ease cramps, too.
handwarmer rice bags. Stocking stuffer!! Perfect for my girlz with chill hands!!
