Check out these gardening tools for kids! For me, the main goal of gardening with kids is to create a sense of awe and wonder of the world. Plus they learn ao much! Here in Seattle, we are craving the sun at this point in the year. My family is particularly fortunate this spring because we are moving to a new home, basically in the mountains with lots of land. I am really excited.[clickToTweet tweet=”‘Children are born naturalists.

Gardening Tools for Kids
My mind is going nuts with ideas on how to cultivate gardens and how to cultivate gardens with my boys. I want them to have their designated area to experiment, to explore, and to learn. Then mama wants her garden. That just gave me chills. Growing your own food and then bringing it to your table? Well, I grew up with that concept but for some reason it is just now making its way into my adult life.
I'll get to the point of this post: the share with you the research I've done on how to integrate your children into cultivating your garden, no matter how big or how small, this year. This post outlines my favorite gardening tools for kids!
