Which do you think is better-to put/build the homes on a piece of cardboard covered with foil or on a sturdy paper plate? Then should we cover it with foil or plastic wrap to take home?

TIA

We always used foil-covered cardboard. Ours sat in a display case for a month, so by the time they went home they just picked them up out of the display case and took them home. I don't know if you'd want to cover it with anything. Maybe slide them into plastic grocery bags and let them carry them that way?

We used a heavy duty paper plate which we frosted the houses to. I wrapped them n saran wrap, and they were good to go.

In our experience (20+ years of making them)

Chinet paper plates were perfect for kids to transport their houses home on the bus. Cardboard tended to bow/fold on them. Plus, there's a built in lip to keep any loose candy inside.

We tried everything from kids bringing their own plate/platter/board to cardboard and finally decided on the Chinet plates after several years of experimentation.

We use Chinet plates as well. They contain the "extra" candy, and don't fold or bend.

We use the hefty styrofoam plates. They are the sturdiest we have found and hold up on the bus.
