This guide to gardening tools for kids includes a list of garden tools, garden toys, and gardening kits for kids.
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.
Gardening tools for kids can be used for their own veggie garden, for an indoor garden, to help mom or dad in the yard, to fill a fairy garden with plants, or any other gardening activity.
