Here’s how you can get all the Christmas feels, without a Christmas tree
Riddhi Rathod

When you think Christmas decor, the first thing that comes to everyone’s mind is a big Christmas tree near a chimney. Well, not everyone is fortunate enough to have the space for a gigantic Christmas tree. In these times, our li’l ones cannot revel in the Christmas decor outside, in malls, hotels etc. If you have babies and toddlers in the house, the worry is that your toddler might knock over the tree might leave you sleepless!

Is it still possible to make the kids feel like Christmas without an actual Christmas tree? Why not! There are many alternatives to a traditional Christmas tree which would be a fun activity for toddlers, and also deck up your home for the festivities.

FELT TREE WITH VELCRO

Readily available green felt sheet can be cut in the shape of a Christmas tree and stuck over a wall. You could buy proportionately sized Christmas ornaments and put some velcro stickons on to them. The kids will love to decorate their Christmas tree without hurting themselves and will also keep them busy, endlessly. Felt Christmas trees look beautiful and allow toddlers to play hands-on repeatedly with concentration, and instill a sense of ownership for the toddler.
