4 Tips to Protect Young Kids When Unwrapping Christmas Gifts

Opening gifts with kids is so fun, but can be hazardous, too. Here are four tips to keep kids safe on Christmas morning!

  • When opening gifts with small children, watch out for ribbons. They can be a strangulation hazard.
  • Try to keep older children’s gifts away from younger children, so there is no accidental ingestion of a small part.
  • Toys with strings – especially more than 12 inches long – are a choking hazard, so use caution.
  • Children younger than 2 are more likely to put whatever they are given in their mouths, so avoid items with paint, chemicals or small parts.
