sponge ice pack we use this at our house and they use it at Westons Daycare. No water all over the place and it the kids open the bag it can be stuck in the microwave to sterolize
To make your own shapeable ice pack: Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 3 parts water in a ziploc bag and put in the freezer. (The alcohol will prevent the water from freezing completely.) When it’s frozen, wrap with a towel or cloth of some sort and apply. Tip: If the mixture freezes too hard, just add a little more alcohol. If it’s too slushy, add a little more water.
DIY Icepacks for the lunchbag. Having an ice pack for your lunch is a great idea when it comes to keeping cold things cold, but did you know you can make them yourself? They're ridiculously easy, inexpensive, and easy to reuse in your kitchen if their services are no longer needed. Trust us, your fresh salad or tuna sandwich will thank you!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN ICE PACK --- Choose a Ziploc bag in the size of your choice. Fill the bag halfway or 3/4 full with dish soap. Double or triple the bags to prevent leaks. Freeze. The liquid will get cold without getting hard allowing you to mold around the area needing icing.
