Get Your Little Ones in the Garden: The Best Gardening Tools for Kids 2019
04 March 2019
Spring is gradually coming to life, the weather’s slowly warming up and the days are getting longer. Your garden will soon be in full bloom, so it’s a great time to get outdoor spaces ready for the year ahead – perhaps with a little help from the kids! If the little ones in your life have expressed an interest in gardening, there’s no better way to support them than investing in a few tools designed specifically for them. Take a look below for the best from B&M’s gardening tools for kids to make them feel ready for spring.
Our adorable pack of smaller gardening tools – including a trowel and a mini shovel and rake – come in four different colour schemes and feature four fun characters: Unicorn, Dinosaur, Frog and Flamingo. Find a set to match your little one’s personality and teach them how to help out with planting and getting the borders all neat and tidy. Perfect for outdoorsy kids aged 5 and over!
Your youngsters can get their hands dirty without causing too much fuss and mess with these sweet kids’ gardening gloves. Perfect for combatting mucky palms, soil under fingernails and painful splinters, these useful accessories are also available in Unicorn, Dinosaur, Frog and Flamingo designs.
Bigger Kids Tools for a Bigger Job
You can also get hold of individual items of gardening equipment, including a yard brush, rake and shovel, again beautifully printed with your choice of Unicorn, Dinosaur, Frog or Flamingo characters. Help your little one to really make a difference outside, or create a small patch of garden for them to cultivate all on their own (with a little help from you)!
Work All Done and Dusted?
After a hard day in the garden, there’s nothing better than kicking back, relaxing and surveying your handiwork with a refreshing glass of juice in hand. Good job we stock this adorable two-seater hammock to match the rest of our Unicorn, Dinosaur, Frog and Flamingo ranges. The frame is made of sturdy metal, and it comes with a shady canopy to protect youngsters from the worst of the sun. Of course, you should also keep topping up the sun cream on hotter days!
Keep them Nice & Warm
Of course, the weather is still unpredictable at this time of year, so it’s definitely worth investing in both sun protection and winter warmers. Pop some lovely toasty hand warmers in their pockets to stop their fingers getting nippy. They’re available with cute unicorns, red or blue star designs, Scottie dogs, grey, brown or natural coloured faux fur and plenty more besides!
B&M Top Tip: your little ones’ skin is delicate. Remember to always protect them from the sun on hot days – and from nasty insect bites – by getting hold of the right suncream and insect repellant.
