I just had to share this with all of you since it's been such a huge hit in our household! A friend from preschool recently showed us this "Boo-Boo Bunny" when Parker hurt his lip at the playground. He loved it, so of course we made some of our own when we got home! They are homemade little ice packs - and they're washable!
Here's how you make one. First, take a washcloth and roll it up from both sides until the rolls meet in the middle:
slightly pull out the middle of each roll on one end:
Then fold up the other side of the rolls to about the mid-point:
Then fold the front side (that you just pulled the middles out of) over the top of the back fold:
Secure with an elastic band and voila! A boo-boo bunny. As you can see, the folding creates a little hole in the body of the bunny - that's where you slide in the ice cube.
