Making Boo Boo Bags

My little boy is constantly showing me the power of boys and getting into his little scrapes and scuffles. But when he has a boo-boo he hates to put ice on it to make it better because it is too cold.

So I found these "grow" bubbles in the plant decorating section at Michaels, made a little baggie and filled it with the beads. When you run it under water the beads expand and are soft and squishy in the bag which allows me to put it in the fridge to cool without getting frozen. Super easy fix to his boo-boo situation.

Want to make your own....super easy way to do it!

Supplies: Two 3x4 pieces of fabric and water beads

Stitch the fabric with right sides together and leave an opening on one side. Snip corners and turn right side out.
Add 1/2 tsp. of water beads into the bag. Top stitch around the bag to close the seam opening and provide reinforcement. Add to water so beads expand and put in fridge for next boo-boo situation.
