This winter has been a cold one, and it’s only half way over! With the help of scarves, coats and mittens, we have all managed to stay a little warm. Here is another way to stay warm: a hot sock.
For this project, you will need a large cotton sock, five to seven cups of white rice, a funnel and a ribbon.
First, put the funnel into the sock. If you don’t have a funnel, you can easily make one by rolling up a scrap piece of paper.
Then, pour rice through the funnel into the sock. You may want to use a cup to pour the rice into the funnel. Make sure you leave enough room at the top of the sock to tie a big knot.
After tying the knot, tie a piece of ribbon or string into a bow around the knot. For fun, you can decorate the sock with fabric markers. We decorated our sock with flowers, a tree and the sun to remind us of spring.
Finally, heat the sock in the microwave for three minutes or less. Your sock will then be ready to keep you warm!
Do you have any other tips for keeping warm in the winter?
