I’ll be honest, I was really running out of thunder when trying to name this blog post. So I just decided to be straight to the point, haha.

I mean, it doesn’t get more direct than straight up calling these DIY Cooling Neckerchiefs That Snap For Babies, right?

I should also add that I technically don’t have step-by-step photos for these either because — a) they’re so easy you don’t really need them.

Gwen gets hot super easily living here in Houston. And I knew a trip to Scottsdale mid-summer would realllly do her in if she didn’t have something cooling her down.

Don’t even get me started about the car seat situation when she’s hot. The screaming is NEXT LEVEL impressive. (We bought the Noggle for that).

These cute neckerchiefs solve the problem of beating the heat even if we only stay in the shade, but baby sunglasses help too. 

While this would typically be just as simple as buying premade neckerchiefs online for most people, it’s a well-known no-no for babies to have this around their neck that tie because of choking and breathing hazards.

SO, I added snaps to pre-made cooling scarves…

Materials Needed To Make A DIY Cooling Neckerchief

Cooling scarves (I used these and these)

Snap button kit

Small hammer

Also worth noting: the cooling beads in the scarves are only sewn into the back portion of the collar, so if baby nibbles on the ends of the scarf there won’t be anything unsafe about it.

How To Make A DIY Cooling Neckerchief

All I did to make them baby safe is apply the snaps, one closure to each side of the scarf, and then make a knot on the scarf where each closure is so that when they snap together the scarf looks tied.

They just so happen to make the perfect gifts for kids or personalized  birthday gifts for girls!

To make these for adults, you’ll need to size up about 5 inches for extra room.

They’re also perfect gifts for women who love the outdoors or even gifts for him, especially for golfing!

  2. That’s still super duper dangerous. It can get tangled in something or one can grab and pull the neckerchief of another kid, I can go on like this… Besides, cooling neck and spine isn’t a good idea when it’s real hot. So, I usually loooove the ideas on this blog but this time oups… :)

  3. I’ll have to try these, because they’re so cute! I’m not sure my son will be willing to wear them (he’s at the rip it all off toddler stage) but we have some smaller babies in our friend circle that could use this!
