The menu for summer’s outdoor adventures: a skinned knee with a side of frozen peas and carrots.
Give your clumsykins something a tad more satisfying with Woopsies, soft-as-a-worn-in-beach-towel ice packs for owies. Available in six quirky characters (we’re partial to the blue Zibble), the little guys are just the right pals to restore order to a sunny day.
In lieu of liquid or gel, the beanbag-like sack is filled with buckwheat seeds. Simply put it in the freezer or microwave prior to use, and the seeds hold the cold/heat for up to 30 minutes. Should a few icky blood drops spatter about, pop off the cover and machine wash.
Because ice cream and watermelon are all she has the appetite for.
