Ice Packs homemade

With my children involved in sports, their love to hike and all around ability to get out and about ice packs are a necessity. That is why today I decided to share with you a great recipe for Ice Pack

Ice Pack

1 cup rubbing alcohol

3 cups water

Mix the two together in a gallon size ziploc. Freeze and while the ice pack will be ice cold the alcohol will allow the liquid to smush up and move aroun. Not freezing solid helps to keep the ice pack useable.

The next best thing to this is a bag of frozen peas. you can break the peas apart and then it will conform to where you need it to.

I am sharing this recipe on the blog We Are That Family


  1. Fantastic Idea! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. My mother in law had surgery a few years ago and the doctor recommended the peas to her! I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever heard, but she said it worked great! We use the peas often in our house, maybe I will make up some of these re-useable ones too!

  3. Never heard of that--thanks for the tip!

  4. WHOA!


    We have an ice pack shortage in my home (*SIGH*). They're a necessity for a lunch-packing boyfriend.

    This is HUGE.


  5. Ooh we have 7 grandkids. What a wonderful thing to have on hand in the freezer for accidents. I am going to make up a few just for the holidays. Someone is always getting hurt while visiting. Thanks again for the wonderful recipe. Love it. Country hugs and love, Sherry

  6. Now why didn't I think of that?!!

    What a great tip. Thanks

  7. What a great tip! I had heard the one about peas before (and used it) but not the first one. Thanks! Have a great weekend...
