Another new idea we have tried….

Both the younger boys play baseball, and both are pitchers. They ice their arms after each game. Bags of ice are a bit annoying to deal with, so we tried this idea…

Homemade ice packs

Actually, I didn’t make them. The middle son did it all by himself. We chose to color the water and put warnings on the bags – and double bag them. In our big freezer, they still freeze up fairly solid. But as they defrost, they are gel-like and slushy for a long period. With our hot climate, it is not long before they are ready to wrap around an arm, soothing it after striking the other team out!
