The holidays can be a lot more fun when kids are involved, but there are a few things to keep in mind when celebrating with little ones. At the top of the list: Making sure the décor is kid-proof (glass ornaments could be a recipe for disaster) as well as fun and sophisticated (for both children and adults to enjoy). There’s also the important task of keeping the kids occupied during holiday gatherings. Not to mention being able to set aside time to simply enjoy the holidays with everyone, instead of running errands and stressing about hosting. Los Angeles-based designer (and mom of two) Emily Henderson teamed up with Target and their new Wondershop collection to share her advice for decorating and entertaining during the holiday season with kids in tow. Of course, Henderson wants her home to look “pulled together,” but the main priority is creating a home for her kids “where they can laugh and smile as much as possible.” Find out what she has to say about kid-proof decor, tapping into your inner child, and more in this video that we’re sharing exclusively with Real Simple readers, with bonus tips below.
