This Great tip came to me from the Sol and Rachel Do a Blog! 

Check it out at http://www.solandrachel.com/2011/12/pinterest-christmas.html

Decorating a Christmas Tree was a long-term goal in our house for many years.  Tristan’s sensory issues posed real challenges for our family.  We became super creative!  I wish I would have thought about making a felt tree.  What a great idea!

Some ideas that we have tried:

1.Decorating and hanging a paper tree on the wall.

2.Putting a tree up with no lights. (Tristan would eat them.  I think he liked the sound of them crunching.)

3. Putting up a tree with “safe” paper ornaments.

4. Putting up ornaments and resigning ourselves to the fact Tristan will move them around the tree.

 

What ideas/ and or challenges have you overcome in terms of decorating for Christmas?  Please share!

  1. The biggest challenge I faced was using safe ornaments.
    Parental Alert!!!
    Even now these new plastic ornaments that look like glass, have the removable top for the hook, it is not glued on.
    It would be nice if there were laws, like for toys, that have specifications for ornaments for safety reasons.
