I need a ketchup - ice pack
Freeze those single-use ketchup packets, and use them as little kid-sized ice packs.

They are the perfect size for kid bumps and bruises and the packets stay soft so they can conform to any body part.

Annamarie Dodge posted: it's a good idea, but you can go to the Dollar Tree and get a reusable cool pack in shapes for boys or girls and they are much bigger and they are in shapes that the kids love...my son has a Hot Wheels car.

Robin Elliott Goering posted: I have been doing this for years...never had a mess with them and the kids think it is neat putting frozen ketchup on their boo boos.

Maria Robinson Mckinney posted: Another idea is basic sponges, wet them and put them in freezer. We used them at daycare.
