We are cautiously heading towards the most enjoyable time of the year. The music, lights, the fun… and the decorations. I myself have a toddler and a preschooler with a talent for detecting fragile objects. You understand: they can have fun around Christmas. It is sometimes difficult to find a balance between participating in decorating and protecting your children and fragile Christmas decorations.

We have listed 5 tips for involving children in Christmas decorations without shards

Decorating the Christmas tree, setting up the nativity scene… Anyone who has ever experienced the Christmas magic knows it's hard not to feel it. How nice is it to be able to pass on this magic to your children at an early age. We show you how it can be safe (and fun) for the whole family.

Started from the bottom 🎄

Maybe an open door, but let the kids help decorate the bottom of the tree. The area where they can reach themselves without difficulty. Hang your fragile ornaments high in the tree to keep them safe. To enjoy it yourself without any worries, you can decorate the tree (or branch) with our wooden Christmas hangers. These are made of sturdy birch plywood and are made in such a way that even the youngest can hang them in the tree themselves.

Since they are made of untreated wood, they are perfect for decorating together. This way you can make a moment of it with the whole family. You can paint, draw or stick them.

Do it yourself

An option is to give them their own mini Christmas tree that they can decorate themselves. Of course with the decoration that can take a beating, such as the wooden hangers. Let go of any perfectionism, and encourage them as they diligently hang all the balls on one side.

The nativity scene

Most nativity scenes are not made with the play corner in mind. The often fragile figurines often have a great appeal to children, but they are often very unsuitable for playing with. However, our wooden nativity scene is safe under the tree or in the play corner. The stable is fully equipped with all figures.

These are made from FSC wood and are safe for young children. Due to the appearance of the wood, this child-friendly Nativity scene fits into any interior. By the way, you don't have to have children at all to set up this nativity scene: in addition to being fun to play with, it is also a joy to look at.

Our farm is also very suitable for temporary use as a nativity scene . Complete this with a separate set of Christmas figures, et voilà.
