Christmas tree ornaments that hang on low branches can be hazardous to children. Try this trick Dr. B used when her kids were younger: Make gingerbread cookies and punch a hole near the top of the cookie with the end of a drinking straw before baking. Once baked, tie a ribbon through the hole and hang the cookies on your tree. These festive ornaments smell wonderful and are safe if they end up in your child’s mouth. (Be aware: your dog will love them, too!)

I made stuffed ornaments when my boys were toddlers. I love the idea of gingerbread cookies! Mmmm

When my kiddos were young we would decorate the tree with all of their toys from all the happy meals that got thru out the years. My daughter has taken over the kiddo tree for my grandbabies. They have 2 trees. One with fragile decorations ( the kids have learned not to touch) and one for the kids to decorate.

We grew up putting decorated Christmas cookies all over the tree, with styrofoam balls ("snowballs") on the lower branches because of the cats. Of course the cats would climb the tree and knock off the higher ornaments anyway.
