Decorating Divided Into Easy Compartments
- What: Divided plates
- When: Decorating cookies or gingerbread houses
- Why: Keep small decorations contained
- Where: Amazon
Maybe your toddler has grown up, and you don’t need those plates with different sections. But if you want to pass them along or toss them out, wait until after the holidays.
Even for older kids, these divided plates make great containers for decorating cookies and gingerbread houses. They hold a reasonable amount of sprinkles, gum balls, candy, peppermints, and more. They also make a great place to lay down frosting, so any frosting that leaks out gets on the plate instead of on your table, placemats, tablecloths or worse.
Little hands and big ones alike can easily reach the goodies inside the separate compartments. Thanks to the wider shallow surface, everyone can see what they have left and pick accordingly. It also helps contain the mess when kids pick up tiny pieces, and prevents them from dumping an entire container in one spot.
For simplified festive decorating for any occasion with little ones helping out, pull out a divided plate filled with toppings and let them loose.
