With so many staying home this past season, it IS 2020, the family really got into the gardening craze! What a perfect time to continue a love of gardening for the kids with garden tools to fit them!
Since we’ve become more environmentally friendly, let’s skip the plastic tools and get our “Littles” some quality metal tools!
I’ve posted about getting the right fitting tools for your little gardeners (in this link is a link to tools for kids 6 to 9) but I hadn’t seen these metal and wood tools that are clearly more work-ably endurable!
EverEarth Childrens Gardening Bag With Tools set contains a hand rake, a hand scoop, a hand trowel, a small watering can, and a practical garden bag, sized for kids from 3 years old.
EverEarth also offers mini rakes, hoes, shovels and more.
The company is out of the UK. Offering your littles garden equipment to fit them and allowing them to have their own space in the garden is such a wonderful way to connect kids to gardening, which means playing in the dirt, which is good for the soul!
ToySmith has a tall garden kit for kids with two different types of rakes, a shovel and a hoe, and in fact, have a whole department devoted to exploring the backyard!
There’s a little wheelbarrow, a bird call, a critter case, a bug vacuum and lots more cool kid stuff.
Some of the items can be found at big box stores. Of course, there’s always Amazon. You also may consider your local, smaller boutique stores.
