Homemade Soft Ice Pack

Flexible Ice Pack

Tis' the season for owies and boo boo's...I don't know about you, but those cute little kid ice packs aren't all that great.  They are hard...I wanted something soft and flexible.  So here it is...It's almost like a Gel Pack if you will.

Recipe for Ice Pack:
2 Cups of Water
1 Cup of Rubbing Alcohol
Food Coloring (optional)
  2 Ziploc Freezer Bags

Mix the ingredients together and pour into a Ziploc baggie, I used blue food coloring.  Make sure it's airtight, and then put the baggie inside another baggie.  I just used regular Ziploc Snack Baggies.  I wanted smaller ones.



This is what it looks like frozen..I love the way it feels.  Hopefully we won't need to use it but if we do..it's ready to rock n' roll.

It's the small things in life right? Have a good night!

  1. Thanks Nicole! I was telling a friend how silly it is to get excited over an ice pack, but I just love the softness of it. Plus it's so easy and inexpensive to make. I had the supplies on hand. Gotta love that.

  2. Just an added note:
    If your ice pack is not as soft as you'd like it, add more rubbing alcohol. You can also use 80 proof Vodka instead of the rubbing alcohol. Rubbing Alcohol is cheaper :)

  4. I'd probably secure the edges with some duct tape for safety's sake...but I LOVE the idea and will likely make some! thanks!

  7. I love the idea but not the rubbing alcohol, my little one tends to chew on these ice packs also, so I was wondering is there something safer to use? And also I have a sealer machine which I would use to secure better, but would really like to get away from the alcohol. But really love your idea, thanks for sharing.

  8. The reason why this ice pack has a slushy effect is because of the Rubbing Alcohol. Alcohol doesn't freeze, so combined with water, which does freeze, it makes it slushy. So I can't think of a safer product to mix in, but I was racking my brain and did come up with a solution for you.
    Get a baby washcloth wet, put it in a baggie, and freeze it. You can take the washcloth out of the baggie if you wish, and as it melts it gets soft, yet stays cool. That way if your child chews on it, there is no worry. This works great for teething babies as well. I really hope this helps you out. You can use any size washcloth but the baby ones are such a perfect size for a boo boo :) Have a fabulous day!

  9. How about adding salt to the water? It would never freeze solid, but then it would still be watery so it might not work as well - but the salt lowers the freezing point of water, and it would be non-toxic...

  10. I agree that securing the zip lock would be advisable. Even with the older kids. Duct tape is an okay idea, but it might fall off or get pulled off. I think I'd try using superglue in the zip lock grooves. I would also double-bag it just to be safe.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This bag is double bag, as mentioned above. I didn't secure any further because in my case I didn't need to, but certainly adding more security is never a bad thing :)

  13. I just found this non-toxic version listed on another site. It uses corn syrup, rather than rubbing alcohol. Probably a good alternative if you have kids that like to chew on the bag. :)

  14. I can't wait to make these! I found freezer ziplock bags at Walmart. They are thicker and seem to seal better. I think they would be reliable and I shouldn't have to use two bags. Also, I plan to sew a cover for my ice pack which should further protect it. Thanks so much for the idea!
