Young children are prone to scrapes and bruises. I recommend to their parents keeping a tray of miniature party-type ice cubes in the freezer. The cubes are just the right size for small hands and come in a variety of kid-pleasing shapes--hearts, stars, and so on. It is often easier to convince children to apply these to minor injuries than regular ice cubes or packs.
