Practical Hacks for Parents: DIY Ice Packs

3 Kids, 3 lunches everyday. Factor in forgetting to unpack said lunches, leaving things at school or needing to ice a boo boo (real or exaggerated) and we always seem to be short on ice packs. Here’s a quick, inexpensive tip for making your own.

Hit the Dollar store and pick up some kitchen sponges, wet them, put them in a zippy and freeze. Tomorrow morning you’ll have all the ice packs you need.

They’re the perfect size, and as they melt the sponge retains the water, so no leaking! If you want to go an extra step, use your cookie cutters to trace and cut out some fun shapes for the kids lunches.
