Boo-Boo Bags

My son is currently obsessed with band aids. Every bump, fall and scrape is worthy of a band aid, even if the boo-boo is invisible to the naked eye. He also loves ice packs and the minute he falls he'll scream out for one. I have seen many different styles of Boo-Boo bags in blogland and finally decided to make some.



I used leftover fleece because it's soft and cuddly. I filled each bag with rice and tested that they work well right out of the freezer (stored in a zip lock bag) and after a quick 30-sec trip to the microwave.



Each kid got a pair of them, one for the freezer and the other for the microwave.



Ironically enough, my daughter had a belly ache tonight and was able to test the warm one. She said it felt really good on her tummy. Success!

I want to make some of these for my nephew, what do you fill them with? Regular hot/cold packs?

Love the designs! I made some for my kiddoes also but put some flax seed in them and the kids said they smell bad....and they do! So round 2 for me with plain old rice! I made longer ones for my 3 year old and her growing pains on her feet so she uses her's every night. They really do help!

What a great idea. Could you put lavender in the microwave one with the rice? That would be a great de-stresser.

Really cute...I wish I had thought of this when my kids were little...they needed a band-aid for everything!! Have a great weekend.

Great idea. What is it with kids and band-aids? Mine needed them for the tiniest scratch. This would have been such a great solution. Thanks for linking up to Finished for Friday!
