OK I know it's early, and I already have about 10 boxes of Christmas decorations in the loft, but this year I want to push the boat out and be really lavish with my Christmas decorations. Our grandchildren will be here for some of the time and I want them to be bowled over by it, especially the elder of the two, who will be 18 months by then.
As he and his parents are flying over from the States, we can't give them that many presents to take back with them, so I wanted to compensate with giving them a memorable time.
I need tips on
- safety, whilst keeping a maximum of the attractions at toddler's eye level
- what toddlers like
- but preferably also ideas that present an alternative to plasticky, glitzy stuff.
I'm sure that by asking in the Arts and Crafts forum, I'll get some really tasteful and practicable ideas.
I shan't be putting them up yet, I promise. But I could start buying some of the ingredients....
