Fill empty prescription bottles with the labels removed two thirds full of water and freeze for a quick little ice pack for children's "owies". This would also be a nice portable thing to take on a picnic or hike for the same use.

What an easy, excellent idea.
Wow, what a great-and simple idea! Wish I'd had it last week when my 2 yr old grandson got his finger smashed in the screen door & wouldn't let anyone put an ice cube or ice pack on it. Those little bottles are perfect for toddler-size fingers & maybe they'd play with it & not even realize it was helping!Thanks!
Yep. Another good container is the Ensure or generic ones with the thick plastic and good sealing lid. You can make bigger ones for the cooler, and the ice doesn't melt all over the cooler or the food.
