What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Freezer Teether Tutorial



I posted about making a freezer teether for my babe a few days ago and then you asked how I did it.

I made the teether using the rice hot/cold pack concept except the thought of sucking on soggy, (and eventually) moldy rice kinda grosses me out. (I *know* I am not alone in this.) so I modified it for a mouth.

Gotta say: these really, REALLY work. My baby loves 'em.


Just keep them in the freezer and the rice will provide instant cold therapy whenever it is needed. They stay cold for quite a long time too!

So here it is. A photo-tute, just for you.















As soon as it was done, I was kicking myself for not embroidering a cute little cloud face on it before it was too late. (rats)


As a last ditch attempt, I used fabric paint. Not the best, but oh well.


The boy doesn't seem to mind.
