Child Gardening Tools For The Little Gardenerfrom:
Children are curious and like to stay busy. When they see their parent working in the garden, they naturally want to participate. Child gardening tools make that possible. Child-sized gardening tools are real implements and can be used to do real tasks in the garden. It is joyous to watch a child learn to appreciate the environment.
Mommy, Let Me …
Most child gardening tools are made for children 5 years old and older. They are usually made out of wood and metal. All the standard gardening tools are made for children’s smaller hands. There are shovels, rakes, trowels, wheelbarrows and hoes available with shortened handles and smaller attachments. There are children’s gardening toy tools on the market, but they are not real working tools. Often the toy tools are made out of plastic and break much easier. If you intend on letting your child work with you in the garden, be sure you purchase sturdy gardening tools made specifically for use by a child. It is sweet to hear your child say, “Mommy, let me … I want to do it myself!”
