Drying Art Projects

Have you ever looked with envy at those fancy art drying racks in the supply catalogues? I know I have, even though I really don't have the space for one. I've found something even better, though. If you're like me, you probably have several serving trays that you use for art activities and play dough. They can easily serve the same purpose. They're convenient, too, because it's one less piece of equipment to store and the kids can work on the same tray that their art will be kept on.  Just leave the wet paint or glue covered work on the tray and stack them as shown above.  Find an unused desk or countertop and set them aside to dry.  I love that I can throw these trays through my dishwasher to clean them and they stack and store away on the shelf when not in use. I hope this tip helps you out with your next art project!

  1. What a great idea! Isn't it amazing the simple uses for things that we miss. I'd never thought of using trays like that before.
