This tutorial was created by my (super creative) of 6-year-old daughter as a smaller version of my original reusable heat packs .
hand warmer heat packs
He loved to have the package heat in the feet or hands on cold days, but the kids were often fighting for them. She loves hand warmers can be purchased and used in their pockets in the winter and decided to create a rice-pack version that could be used for this too.
With five children, who have a steady supply of the UN -matched socks that have lost their mates the monster in the dryer or got a hole to be used outside without shoes.
She helped me sort the socks one day and asked what we use extra socks if you never find the combination …
told him I usually only stay in the basket in my closet, which is increasingly complete.
ever creative, she asked if she could have some of the colors. That group became bracelets, puppets and these hand warmers. Note to self: give mismatched socks and other items for children more often! ?
The best part of this DIY is not required sewing. Absolutely it could sew the ends if you wanted, but realized that she could do this simply by tying the ends of a baby or toddler sock longer.
By doing this, he was asked if he had any lavender flowers and added them to heat packs with rice that wonderful smell when heated.
the most convenient way to heat them is in a microwave. Do not use a microwave for food but I feel safe to use for this. In our old house, which had a microwave in our outdoor shed for this purpose. In our current home, we have not eliminated the microwave, however, so is there, but only gets used to heat heating pads and other non-food uses.
A friend of mine uses these types of heating pads all the time, but does not have a microwave, so I asked how they heated. He said all the time that uses the entire cotton cloth or socks, she is able to heat them in a glass container in the oven at 300 ° C for 15 minutes. I have not tried it, but she does all the time. Just be careful
- 2-4 to infants or children mismatched socks (or more)
- Rice (preferably organic rice white or jasmine)
- Optional: lavender Flowers
- Fill each sock 1/3 to 1/2 complete with rice, depending on how full you want to end hand warmer.
- Add 1 teaspoon lavender flowers if used.
- Sock tie the end to seal tightly.
- sock cut off the excess, leaving about 1/2 inch which is not conditioned.
- Alternatively you can fill only a small part of the middle, closed thing and then cut.
- heat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds or oven to 300 in a glass container for 10-15 minutes.
