Hand Warmers

46 Hand Warmers

It's cold here in Florida.
Hard freeze warnings issued overnight.
We should be back in the 70's by Friday.
But for now I'll enjoy wearing my wool sweaters and drinking my coffee with my gloves on. I think I'll break out my penguin winter hat for fun.

we thought they looked like balloons
I asked if I could make hand warmers for the kids at my daughter's school that have been selected for Safety Patrol.

rice and deer feed, corn
Safety Patrol involves assisting the kids in and out of the cars before and after school in the car line. We appreciate those "older" kids helping open doors and wishing us a great day, it's a big deal for those elementary school students selected.

I decided to fill each little heart with both rice and deer feed, corn.
A good friend told me that the deer feed hold the heat better.
I didn't think I had enough  corn so I threw in some rice and mixed it up.  

 I love how they are small enough to fit in their pockets or their mittens and gloves. 
We tried them out tonight and they kept warm for about 20 minutes.
That should get them through the morning.

I thought I would throw them in the microwave for 1 minute right before we walked out the door and throw them in a foil bag. 

Boo's cute house... I think I'll be using this.
Stay Warm
Somewhat Simple
