This week we are getting a Christmas tree delivered which is very exciting (overwhelmingly exciting if you asked the kids) but as usual there is one small issue involved when you have a toddler in the house. Well… it’s the toddler isn’t it? And a Christmas tree. Always a source of excitement and fear, I don’t think I’ve yet had a year as a parent when I haven’t been more than a little concerned that their desire to look at the pretty things would end with a tree on top of a small person. As my toddler adores sensory play at the moment I thought I would try making her a Christmas tree sensory bin where she could safely handle a few ornaments under my supervision and hopefully then not be to desperate to touch them again once the tree is up?! As normal this was a last minute idea so there’s some tips in the post below if you plan on getting this Christmas tree sensory bin ready for your little one while you inhale a cup of tea!
