5 Things To Do with Foam Food Trays
We always have more foam trays than we need and supermarkets should probably stop using them. After all, they’re not the greenest product out there. Stop them from heading to the landfill by using them for projects, such as protecting precious photos or helping out a budding artist.
Release Your Innersoles
If your tired feet need a little padding, grab a couple of clean meat trays and cut them to fit inside the sole of your shoes or boots. You’ll have happy feet and some extra cushioning for free.
Provide an Art Palette
Create a paint palette for your budding Picasso. A thoroughly cleaned and dried food tray is the perfect place for kids to squirt their tempera or oil paints. Are they experimenting with watercolours? Use two trays. Put the paint in one and water in the other. At the end of the art session, you can just throw them away.
Protect Photographs in the Mail
Why buy expensive padded envelopes to send photographs to loved ones? Cut foam trays slightly smaller than your mailing envelope. Insert your photographs between the trays, place in the envelope and mail. The photos will arrive without creases or bends.
