Decorating in general can be tricky with kids, but when it comes to a holiday that's all about pine trees, string lights, candles and glass ornaments, it's even more challenging—especially if a curious toddler is involved.

(Raise your hand if you've ever decorated only the top half of the tree.)

Just because you have kids doesn't mean you need to sacrifice style, whether you're decorating for the holidays or any other days of the year. These days, there are plenty of fun and whimsical holiday decorations that still have a touch of sophistication and kid-friendliness.

Think soft, plush, and virtually indestructable. Felt garlands and ornaments look great on the tree, and an advent calendar of any kind not only brings the excitement of the Christmas spirit, but also helps get kids involved with decorating.
