    DIY Lunchbox Icepacks. Just use a cheap sponges from dollar store. Soak in water and place into a ziplock bag. Lay flat in the freezer and freeze overnight. In the morning, just toss them into the lunch boxes. As they melt, they will reabsorb the water so just toss them back in the freezer after school.

    Homemade Ice Packs: Saturate a clean sponge with water & place into ziplock bag. Lay flat in freezer & freeze overnight. In the morning, just toss them into the lunch boxes. As they melt, they will reabsorb the water so just toss them back in the freezer after school!!! Mix 1:1 solution of water & rubbing alcohol. Will freeze colder & are more pliable for injuries. gm
