DIY snack tray for the car

Fall travel is right around the corner….here is a great tool to keep the cars neat:)

Our cars often times are like our home on wheels…we are constantly going somewhere….and making that space “work” as efficiently and as neat as possible is always a plus. I think the back envelope area of your car seat is thee best way to help keep your car tidy. Every member of my family have benefited from these snack trays. They are an inexpensive way to keep food on laps….easy to make…a snitch to clean…AND they fit in the seatback…win win!

So here is how you go about making a couple of cute snack trays for your car:) You will need:

2 dollar store cookie sheets

1 large plastic shopping bag (mine is from TJ Maxx)

tacky glue

some heavy books

This is how we do it: (are you singing now? like MC Hammer? just me? carry on…..)

cut the bag so that you have 2 pieces of plastic

trace the cookie sheet on the wrong side of the plastic

cut it out

place glue along inside edge of cookie sheet

place one plastic sheet on and press firmly

set heavy books on top till dry

Isn’t it cute how is matches my Puffs tissues:) Some days I just feel like I could rule the world;) Puffs sent me some fabulous travel tissues to place back in the seat too. I love that the container is “squishable” and water resistant. Very user friendly packaging…and not bad to look at either:) I’m so fancy like that…:) Be sure to look up Puffs on Facebook and share how SoftPack’s could fit into your life:)
