My daughter loves using food trays, and I think kids in general like to put them to good use. Until those little hands get bigger and more coordinated, a good tray can be very useful. What my daughter likes to do is prepare surprise meals for me. She lays out a spread of fruits, veggies, hummus, and crackers on a tray and surprises me with a mid-day snack. I really love it, and now I have a soft spot for food trays.
So today I came across this beautiful tray sold by the Scandinavian Design depot, Huset. Scandinavian design seems perfect for kids. The colors, clean lines, and whimsical images just seem to fit into a kid’s life so well. Or maybe I just like it because my whole family originally came from Scandinavia, and I grew up with these types of images.
Regardless, there are several items at Huset that seem appropriate for kids. The ‘kids’ section has some, but if you troll around the site a lot of items will pop out. I especially like the products by: Rice dk, Lotta Kuhlhorn, and Almedahls. The Almedahls tray above costs $36.
