I always have a stack of these on hand in our craft room. I just run them through the dishwasher to make sure they’ve been sterilized first.
On Monday, had the Hooligans paint them each a different colour. We used Crayola craft paint, but once dry it scratched and chipped easily so I put a clear coat of craft varnish over the paint to set it.
We’ve used acrylic craft paint before on meat trays, and it adhered better. I wasn’t sure how we were going to use the painted trays so they sat overnight until I came up with an idea: Mosaics.
Such a simple idea, and so pretty. Check out our styro-framed art creations if you’re looking for another simple and beautiful way to use meat trays!And if you’re looking for another mosaic project, check out our Paint Chip Mosaics! It’s a simple and beautiful activity that won’t cost you a thing!
