2 bottles of rubbing alcoholThe howl of pain could be heard for miles. Last week, my two-year-old daughter tipped the kitchen chair over onto my big toe. She was still in the chair, so all 38 pounds of her landed on my toe. When I was finally able to hobble over to the freezer, I discovered I didn't have any bendable ice packs. It is impossible to shape a frozen ice pack.

If only I had seen Uncooped's post, how to make a shapeable ice pack. I could have opened my freezer door, pulled out the ice pack, and given my toe the relief that it needed, but unfortunately didn't receive.

Why not mix up your own shapeable ice packs? All you need is one part rubbing alcohol and 3 parts water, a plastic zippered freezer bag, and a marker to label the bag. These ice bags will work great for the next time you get an ouchie somewhere a non-bendable ice pack will not work.
