Need ideas for repurposing frozen dinner plastic trays

I have tons of the plastic trays from frozen dinners and want to find ways to repurpose them into some kind of craft that can be made by kids in an afterschool setting. Any ideas?

They make great containers for something, fingerpaint or paint mixing, or even the base for a diorama of some sort. Get a bag of play sand, paint part of the bottom blue, glue and tack on sand to have them create a beach scene, or the lake, or whatever. Have them cut out and build houses, bridges, planes, windmills, etc. Make picture frames from them, cut out a hold and decorate like a TV or laptop. Make a mini-fingerpuppet stage...etc. Have fun and good luck.
