Piece of the Week – Mushroom Tray
Mushrooms, whole or sliced, typically come in a blue plastic tray. This rectangular bowl/tray doesn’t come with a lid, and isn’t necessarily the sturdiest of plastics, but it can surely be REUSED in a Smart Mama home!
Reuse Idea #1 – defrosting tray
Each evening I take out the next night’s protein out of the freezer and put it in the fridge to defrost. I like the meat to sit in a plate or something, just in case something leaks. For smaller cuts of meat, the mushroom tray is perfect for this. I REUSE the mushroom trays for defrosting!
Reuse #2 – fingerpaint tray
I often get a little adventurous with my munchkin…choosing to do some messier than normal activities! Fingerpainting is a great activity for art expression and shes LOVES it. I REUSE the mushroom tray to hold her fingerpaints when she’s painting. The tray is sturdy enough and can easily be rinsed and cleaned.
Do you REUSE mushroom trays? How so?
