What you need

Sock
2 cups of uncooked rice or wheat
Elastic band or hair band

Instructions

If you are making these for gifts try using seasonal decorative socks for a fun look. You can get some great socks for Father’s day and make dad a great gift.

Take the clean sock and fill it with rice. Leave enough room to tie a knot in the top of the sock. if you are using a smaller sock then use a rubber band or hair band.

This small heat pack can be used in emergencies whilst travelling.

Heat in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high

If your hotel does not have a microwave you can always ask the staff as majority of hotels will either have one in the staff lunch room or in the kitchen.

Being a migraine sufferer I have always been caught out on holiday.

One day whilst in India suffering a bad migraine and neck pain I had this idea. It would have worked perfectly if the electricity had not gone off just as I finished!
