Christmas is coming and we are so excited around our household! This year we have a little one who is grabbing everything in sight so the idea of putting up our usual tree and ornaments kind of makes me cringe. Did I mention the normal hassle that comes along with buying a real pine tree — watering it, getting it into the stand, and vacuuming up all of those needles?!
Luckily, there are some great Christmas tree options that are safe for your youngster, not to mention simple, easy, cute, festive, and not fragile or messy. (Added perk: your pet won’t get into these either.) Sounds pretty perfect, right? Check out these toddler-friendly ideas for a very merry, (almost) worry-free holiday!

3. Felt Tree
Not only is this a great tree option, it’s interactive! The kids will love playing with it. (via Pepper Design)
4. Tape Tree
This is one of my favorite ideas! So easy and so fun! (via Bettina Holst)
5. Chalkboard Tree
If you have mad drawing skills, you should definitely do something like this. If not, a simple tree design would do just fine. (via A Legg Up)

7. Lights Tree
To me, the best thing about a Christmas tree is the lights! I love all of those glowing balls of joy. So why not make an entire tree out of lights? Brilliant, right? (via A Merry Mishap)
