Is Dad forever losing his keys? Why not make him a tray to put on the hall table so that he can empty his pockets when he arrives home? Dad will always be able to find his keys and his loose change, and Mum will have fewer grey hairs!
You will need:
A polystyrene tray - the sort fruit or meat comes on. Make sure it has been well cleaned!
Simply paint your tray however you like and leave to dry.
