I love those signs that read, "Please excuse the mess. We are learning." It's so true. But, there are some tricks for keeping the mess to a minimum. And trays are the perfect tool for doing just that. It defines a workspace and corrals small scraps. It also keeps paint from going off the paper and onto the table.
You can buy cheap trays at IKEA and Walmart as well as Dollar Tree. Another option is to buy cookie sheets with shallow edges at the dollar store.
