Christmas is a fun time of the year, but having a little girl pulling ornaments off the tree, or taking it down, isn’t one of the fun parts.
That’s why we put a gate around our Christmas tree. We purchased a North States Superyard XT Gate Play Yard and wrapped it around the tree. It fits nicely and helps keep little ones from running into it.
However, it doesn’t stop little hands from reaching out and grabbing ornaments that are at her height. So each time she grabs something, I put it back on the tree, further up.
The gate also helps deter the cats. Not as much as Lily, but any little bit helps as we don’t need any more cats sleeping in the Christmas tree or knocking it over.
This is actually our second Superyard Gate. We have another one that use to be a play pen but now spans the front of my desk and across the bottom of the stairs so someone can’t get into trouble.
If you’re looking to keep your little one out of the Christmas tree, check out the Superyard Gate. Maybe it’ll work as good for you as it does us.
