I cannot take credit for this hack, but I found it on a website for people who have rheumatoid arthritis. Seems to me this icepack idea would easily work for anyone, including a child.

Great idea, and likely more comfortable (and cheaper) than our old standby, a bag of frozen peas. Thanks for sharing, Hillary!

Parenthackers have shared other creative ice pack hacks including those made out of disposable diapers or hair gel or corn syrup.

Any other DIY ice pack ideas?
