Poisonous Holiday Plants

Holiday plants are beautiful and can add much ambience to the classroom setting. My favorites are poinsettias.

Please be aware that the following favorite holiday plants can be toxic to young children or at least cause stomach distress and diarrhea if ingested. Keep the following plants out of reach of the children and pets in your classroom and building:

  • Holly leaves and berries
  • Mistletoe and berries
  • Lilies
  • Hibiscus
  • Poinsettias
