Save the real tree and some sanity this holiday season with a felt Christmas tree for toddlers! Why you’ll all love it + where to find a felt tree.
I’d heard horror stories about toddlers pulling down Christmas trees, and I made sure I braced myself for it! And then, my oldest child had exactly zero interest in our tree through his toddler years. I wondered how I had dodged that bullet.
Sometimes I think God shows his sense of humor by giving an overly confident parent a second child. At least that has been the case with me! My second child has been interested in all things. He wanted to pull down or at least redecorate our family Christmas tree every waking second. I’d heard about getting a felt Christmas tree for toddlers, and decided it was time to look into one!
Felt Wall Christmas Tree
We are in our second year of owning our own felt wall Christmas tree for toddlers, and it is just as big of a hit this year as it was last! In fact, our kindergartner loves to remove the ornaments and decorate with them too! It’s something we can put out and set up as a Christmas toddler activity. Every day it’s an easy toddler activity to enjoy during the holidays! Instead of destroying our family tree, he can have all the creative licenses he’d like to redecorate the felt Christmas tree for toddlers. Between it and the kid’s Christmas tree in their bedrooms endeavor, we’ve officially saved our family tree!
Surprisingly, kids of all ages seem to love it and want a turn to decorate it too! Who knew one purchase would provide a lot of Christmas fun for kids?
Felt Tree Options
If you’re ready to make a felt Christmas tree happen in your household, you have a few great options.
- Buy One!
They’re far less money than you’d think. I also love that it’s one purchase and not hours of time to prepare or assemble. Just pull it out of the package, hang it with a Command hook, and let the toddler’s hands go to work!
Here are several great options- including ours!
- DIY Felt Christmas Tree
It wouldn’t be hard to head to your favorite fabric store and get a yard or two of green felt. Freehand cut a tree, and hang it on the wall. Whatever felt shapes you wish to cut you can add velcro onto. Be sure to attach velcro to the tree itself so the ornaments stick.
Pros: customizable options! Plus, a lot of creative fun.
Cons: likely the expense since felt does add up quickly, and the time to create it.
I don’t think you can go wrong with whatever you choose to do! A felt tree for kids in whatever form you choose!
