Create the base of the food tray
The first thing that you need to do is to create the base of the food tray. Start by spreading out a piece of plastic wrap on a flat surface. Fold it in half and take a knife to cut off any extra pieces. Now take your sandwich or bagel, and place it on top of the plastic wrap. Make sure that there is an inch or so from the bottom of the sandwich or bagel to the edge of the plastic wrap.
Make a hole in the middle of the plastic wrap
The first step to making a car food tray with plastic wrap is to make a hole in the middle of the plastic wrap. You’ll want to create a circle or an oval-shaped hole. Then, you will use this opening as your starting point.
Cut and fold your wrapper
Step 1: Cut your plastic wrap into a long strip about 3 inches wide by about 12 inches long.
Step 2: Fold the plastic wrap in half to make a thick sandwich and then fold in half again.
Step 3: Fold the sandwich in half one more time and then pull it up to form a triangle.
Step 4: Now, take your sharp knife and cut along the top of the triangle that opens out like an upside-down “V”. This should leave you with three pieces of plastic wrap on your work surface.
Step 5: Pull the larger piece of plastic wrap up over the other two pieces, so that it covers them completely.
Step 6: Now, take the smaller piece of plastic wrap on top and roll it tightly around itself to form a tube shape.
Step 7: Take one of your strips from step 1 and push it through one end of your tube shape from step 6 until it’s all through. Be careful not to poke yourself or anyone else with this process!
Step 8: Now take one side of your tube shape and flip it over so that you have a tray on both sides. The tubes should still be together but now they’re separated by a piece of plastic wrap on each side.
Put your food on top of it and seal it up
To start, you’ll need to cover a tray with plastic wrap. Then, put your food on top of it and seal it up with plastic wrap. Next, secure the tray by taping around the edges of the tray. Finally, put it on the dashboard of your car to help keep your food cool!
TIP: You can also use aluminum foil if you don’t want to use plastic wrap.
Put it on your car dashboard
This is the perfect way to keep your food safe from any unwanted germs and stay cool on a hot summer day. You can put it right on the car dashboard or in your car so that you don’t have to worry about your children eating their lunch in the car.
