Nacho Trays

Did you know how useful Nacho trays are when you are planning parties? They are really cheap at the warehouse clubs. I have used them for a halloween party for Nachos and cheese but I have also used them for 2 kindergarten class parties this year to help divide up food items for the children. For Christmas we decorated sugar cookies with the works. We had icing, sprinkles, m&m's, etc. I used the nacho trays to easily divide up the sprinkles. I also found some great liners in the candy section at Michael's to further divide the sprinkles and pre measure the icing so everyone would receive the same amount. Since the party is only 45 minutes at our school it is essential to have everything organized so we can get the party started. These containers help us out!!!

For the Valentine's Party we used the nacho containers to hold the fruit and fruit dip for our fruit pizzza ingredients. This was a little healthier alternative(, not much healthier but still :) ) to the all sugar cookie and icing at Christmas. We had strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and bananas(cut these while the kids are decorating their pizzas or they will go brown and not look pretty).
So run to the store and buy you some nacho containers for your next party. I still have my first pack and have used them for 3 parties and they were only $5 bucks. That's a deal!
