Baby’s First Christmas Tree

It is unbelievable how fast babies can crawl. Sometimes I feel like I spend my whole day chasing after my crawling son. 

Since my son manages to get into everything, I’ve come to appreciate all the babyproofing products out there. It is so much easier to keep baby safe when you can buy gates for your stairs, safety plugs for your outlets, locks for your cabinet doors and drawers, corner guards for sharp edges, and more.

Since baby is fascinated with our Christmas tree, I even found some affordable, shatterproof ornaments at The Home Depot. You can get a set of 72 ornaments for just $12 with free shipping. I also found an assorted set of 100 gold ornaments for $24.99 with free shipping at I “tested” these ornaments by throwing them on my hardwood floors. 

Unless you plan on hitting them with a hammer or running them over with your car, I think these ornaments are pretty indestructible. They look like traditional glass ornaments, but you won’t need to worry about broken glass on your floor if one falls off the tree or if baby knocks it off. If you want an affordable and safe way to decorate your Christmas tree, it’s worth it to buy some shatterproof ornaments. 

If you’re looking for more ways to decorate your tree safely, you could do what one of the moms in my playgroup does. She saves all the Christmas cards she receives, and she hangs the prettiest ones on her tree with colorful ribbons. One creative and artistic mom I know made a garland out of rigatoni, penne, and rotelli (wagon wheel) pasta that her kids had painted with nontoxic paint and glitter. She also hung homemade paper snowflakes on the tree as well as candy canes. Her tree may not look as pretty as Martha Stewart’s, but it has a whimsical, homemade charm.  

What are your Christmas tree tips?

    I could use these babysafe ornaments. I decorate my tree with bows and with homemade old fashioned popcorn garland. I also spray-painted some pinecones and hung them with fishing wire.
