A rice-filled cooling pad for children...


Introducing
{drumroll please...} 

The Chick-sicle!


{A rice-filled Cooling Pad for children}

As a mother of seven and grandmother to eight, I have learned a thing or two over the years. One thing I discovered early on is a Scooby-Doo band-aide or a baggie of ice can make all the difference in "healing" a child's scratched knee or bruised arm. The acknowledgment of pain goes a long way in the soothing of it.

A couple of months ago I designed and shared this pattern.  I called them "Love Birds." They are owl inspired rice-filled heating pads for children...


Because they were so successful, I started thinking about creating a smaller version of the heating pad -- one that could be used as an ice pack. As a result these Chick-sicles were hatched...


I've never liked the idea of using a baggie -- filled with freezing, hard pieces of ice -- as a cold pack on a little one's boo-boos! It seems too abrasive and uncomfortable to me, but kids love the attention they receive when they are given a cold pack to soothe a hurt. 


I discovered in the process of creating this pattern, that it's much more difficult to create a pattern for something that is small, than a larger item. Trying to put enough detail to make it unique in a smaller space, takes talent -- quite possibly more than I possess! Never-the-less, these little chicks were born...


Chick-sicles can be stored in the freezer until just the right moment. When taken out and applied to a skinned knee, the frozen rice will cool and soothe the hurt {both physically and mentally}...


The front of the Chick-sicle is made from scraps of cotton. The back is covered with soft flannel...


They are approximately 5 1/2 inches tall which is a manageable size for a little one. {Plus, this egg-shaped chick might work as an item in an Easter basket.}


 I've decided to make this pattern
and some brief instructions on how to make my
Chick-sicle Cooling Pad 
 available to all!
  

Click here
to be transported to my Etsy store to purchase my
 Chick-sicle pattern and instructions!


Enjoy!

Suzanne...I love these little guys! I'm always running for Hello Kitty band-aids for my Ellie's "boo-boos", she'd love it if I could put this on her tiny pretend issues!
I'll be making one!!!

Great gift idea and I agree that it's much better than the heartless plastic bag of jagged ice. Thanks for sharing:)

Cara said...

These are so cute, and such a great idea! I bet you could also use them for warm packs...something I need frequently for shoulder pain and sinus infections. Love this idea!

Lara said...

Love, love, LOVE these! They are so darling and you are so nice to share the pattern with us. Thanks again for sharing your talents.
P.S. - Everyone should switch to Mozilla Firefox, it is WAY better than Internet Explorer :)

Bridget said...

These are too precious. Are you going to have any in your Etsy shop?

Julie said...

This is such a wonderful idea! My girls love their boo-boo buddy so much, but I'm always worried to let them have it when I'm not around because I know they will bite it and the gel would come out. Making this is going to ease my mind! I also downloaded the Heating-pad Owl and can't wait to use that also!

Julie said...

Can't wait to make these for my children. Thanks Suzanne!

-Julie

Renee said...

OMG - My granddaughter just got a black eye (an accident at daycare wih a toy ) We couldn't figure out what to use because an ice pack was too cold. So this is too perfect. Thanks so much!!!

Meesh1957 said...

Well I am late to this party, I found you and these two beautiful hot and cold snugglies! Our grandchildren live in CT. and we live in AL., we don't get to see them very often. So, I will be making four of these (two each) for a girl and a boy (no fighting) that way Oma and Opa can be there to help with the "boo boos."

Thank you for sharing your talent!

thanks for the inspiration!

Ramsey said...

These are so adorable!! I am not a very good seamstress but I think I can manage this project. At least I hope I can :) I printed off the tutorial. Thank you!!

The Mom said...

Thanks! I have pinned this on pinterest to make in the near future! I am sure my daughter is going to feel better about her boo-boos much faster than she would with the plastic bag/ice combo we are using now! Thanks again!

Melanie said...

I found this on Pininterest and think it is a great design and a brilliant solution to the screaming related to using just a tea towel to wrap the ice pack in! Pattern happy at home here in Australia.

Becky said...

These are adorable! Forget the kids, I have bursitis and have you use a cold pack twice a day. This is so much better the the bag of frozen peas. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern with all of us and thank you Pintrest!

I just found your blog and I love it. These projects have the "whimsical cuteness factor" I am drawn to. I just finished my first snap top bag and I am addicted. Everyone I know is going to get one. I fear the same thing is going to happen with these chicks! Thanks for sharing your creativity.

Thanks, going to try and make one for my 2 year old grandson for his Easter basket.

Thank you for this tutorial. My little granddaughter had a boo boo chick but it has seen better days. I will make this one for her. The old one worked magic and I am sure this one will too.
