you buy child-sized gardening tools?
Children get easily
discouraged when they are trying to use things that are designed
for adults rather than children. The same is just as true
when it comes to gardening tools. Even a child who adores
everything to do with gardening will soon become less than
enthused with it when trying to hoe or shovel with adult sized
garden tools, or with plastic child sized ones designed for
a sand box rather than actual dirt digging for gardening.
Today, most gardening
and home improvement centers carry a wide variety of gardening
tools designed just for little ones. Tools include hoes, shovels,
rakes, watering cans, gardening gloves, wheel barrows and
Like all gardening
tools, the price will vary widely based upon quality. You
can easily purchase the least expensive versions, and if your
child becomes an avid gardener, you could consider puchasing
additional pieces or tools of a higher quality.
By purchasing proper-sized
tools for your child, you can easily nurture not only your
garden, but a lifelong love of gardening in your child.
