Gardening For Kids
Gardening with kids can have many more benefits than just producing healthy veggies or a pollinator-friendly habitat. According to a PBS article, when kids garden it benefits their mind, body, and soul. The get smarter, stronger, and more connected to their world. Plus, delicious tomatoes! That’s a lot of benefit for one activity.
To help kids along the path of becoming serious (or not serious) gardeners, it can help to have a special children’s gardening set. It might seem silly to invest in kids gardening gloves or a tool set for kids, but real tools make a real difference.
A children’s garden tool set will fit your child’s hands and be much more effective than adult-sized tools. Plastic toy garden tools won’t work in the garden, but they can be fun to play with in a sandbox or loose dirt, and just might inspire a wee one to want to do some “real” gardening.
