I look forward to the day my tree can have the "good" ornaments on it again.

Two tips we've used with good results: (1)there are safe "hooks" that are really oval shapes made completely of plastic, and they actually lock to make them harder to remove and swallow and... (2) if you can put your tree against the wall, use fishing line and some small nails to anchor your tree to the wall in at least two places. This will make it less likely to tip over should someone decide it needs to be climbed or enthusiastically redecorated.

Yes, thanks Rachel for mentioning the fishing line. That's a great idea. Our tree has tipped over on at least one of my kids two years in a row. Super fun!


Maybe this is the real reason for the old tradition that trees were decorated on Christmas Eve by "Santa".


For ornaments that aren't too heavy, my husband discovered that twisty ties from trash bags work quite nicely as "hooks".


You guys are brave to even put up a tree. We aren't sure if we're going to this year, we bought a play yard from Walmart to put it in but it's not big enough that the kids can't reach it from the outside. I guess maybe next year they'll be old enough to keep away from it. Rachel's suggestion about hooking it to the wall is a good one, I may try that...


last year we decided on a small table top tree b/c I knew they would've tag teamed my almost 6 months pregnant butt and took out a normal sized tree any chance they got. I would've had to carry a 1 & 2 year old with me to the toilet every time I had to go...that was not gonna happen! This year although not pregnant, we weren't gonna risk it, they're both pretty squirrely. We settled on a tree made of glass ornament bulbs. It's on the mantle and out of the way of sticky little fingers and clumsy little feet. Perhaps next year we'll have a "real sized" tree. Of course then my youngest will be 1.5...hmmm. I guess we'll have to play this by year. Attaching it to the wall is starting to sound good right about now.

We haven't put our tree up yet for this very reason. Well, that and our apartment is too small to be occupied by things like "decorations." All the space in the living room is vital. We might have to just get a houseplant and put some bulbs on there! :)



We used a play yard around the tree last year for our then 2 and 1 year olds ... worked great, just a bit of a space hog and made it harder for us to water the tree! This year the play yard is currently sitting out on our front porch as an incentive ... if the girls get too rough with the ornaments, up it will go!

ah! this is brilliant! i especially love the "kid-friendly" ornament box. especially after i spent a good chuck of last night screaming "don't touch THAT ONE!" and "put that one back. GENTLY." or "please wait for mommy before touching those!!"
