Gardening Tools and Projects for Kids
Kid-Sized Gardening Tools and Kids' Gardening Projects
Gardening and Kids. They go hand in hand. Young children don't see gardening as work; they see gardening as a chance to be like Mom and Dad (or Grandmother or Granddad!). Children may see gardening as a chance to get messy - without getting in trouble! Children are naturally curious about nature and want to explore and discover what's out there in the great outdoors!
Now is the time to nurture that love of nature. Kids feel a lot of satisfaction and pride growing something of their own! And parents and grandparents benefit by getting time to work in their gardens, knowing their kids are learning valuable lessons about nature, and enjoying their children in the process! Help your kids or grandkids grow up loving being outdoors, loving nature and plants, and loving spending time with you!

Young children love copying you and truly being of help with gardening tools of their own! You'll also find here some activities and projects to do with your children in the garden. Would you like a themed, child-oriented garden? Or how about a cute "grass head?"
