At Christmas time I made these really easy therapy packs. They were a great gift and everyone has enjoyed them, especially my kids. They love to use their small ones as boo-boo packs, and occasionally try to sneak my larger one to warm up with in bed.
Since we still have a few more weeks of chilly winter weather, I decided to use up some of my scrap fleece to make some hand warmers. It's still pretty cold in the morning, in the van and waiting outside of school, so I thought these hand warmers would be helpful to keep tiny fingers warm.
I made them the same way I did the therapy packs, just smaller. I used about a half cup of rice in each hand warmer (maybe a little less). We warm them up just before we leave for school. I put one set in the microwave for 30 seconds, take them out and shake the rice around a bit, then put them back in for another 30 seconds. That usually does the trick.
