Christmas Tree tips for families with babies and toddlers


How do you keep the Christmas Tree and all those presents safe from busy little hands?

Here are some fantastic tips based on our own experience and backed up by some great ideas from mums on our Facebook page:
  • Put a playpen around the tree
  • Wait until Christmas Even to put the presents under the tree
  • Put the tree in a corner and use a fire guard to keep it safe
  • Put bigger decorations on the bottom of the tree that won't pose a choking hazard
  • If you have special decorations or particularly delicate ones, make sure they are closer to the top away from little hands
  • Involve them in the process by helping them make decorations and put them on the tree to admire
  • Simply say "please keep your hands off the tree"  Good luck with that one.
