The Plastic Table Covering

When my husband and I lived in Mexico working for a children’s ministry, we learned this great trick of covering all work surfaces in plastic covering! In spanish, it’s called hule (pronounced “oo-lay”).  We still call it hule–Don’t forget to put the hule on!  I use the plastic covering for messy crafts in the kitchen, and then I just fold it up and put it in a basement cabinet when we’re done. Occasionally I let it air out.  When it gets too messy it’s time to buy a new one.   I even leave one on our dining table over the table cloth, so I can just wipe up the plastic when we’re done eating.  I only take the plastic off for royal company.

Craft time anybody?

Ready for dinner!

You can find this by-the-yard at Joann’s or any craft store.
Use with craft shirts, and you are ready to create all kinds of mess!
