When we decorate a group of kindergartens for the New Year, we think not only about the beauty of the decor. Safety of babies comes to the fore. The younger the children, the less decoration is required. It is better to place them higher, beyond the reach of children. In older groups, children no longer put shiny toys in their mouths, but even here it is better not to neglect some of the tips:
- Check wiring at the garlands. Fix them closer to the ceiling to protect young experimenters from dangerous experiments.
- Do not hang flammable jewelry near electrical appliances.
- When fixing the decor, use scotch tape. Forget about buttons and safety pins.
- Instead of glass toys, choose unbreakable: plastic, wooden, fabric.
- Jewelry should not have small parts that can be accidentally swallowed, sharp corners, which can be hurt.
The group begins with a locker room.
If you do not know how to decorate the group for the New Year, postpone this task until later.And get busy decorating the dressing room. After all, this is where the next day in kindergarten begins.

In the latter case, you only need to decorate the door under the chimney. From above two legs in felt boots fasten. It is a little imagination - and the usual dressing room turns into a magic one. Behind the transformed door babies are waiting for real miracles.
