I rounded up some super cute gardening tools for moms and kids that will make you majorly heart-eyed. From hand tools and watering cans to cute gloves and stuff to keep the kids busy, gardening with kids has never been more fun—or less stressful!
The buds have just started to pop out on the tree in our front yard and I have been straight up giddy with excitement. After a long, cold, ugly winter, the first signs of spring make me bounce around like a kid on Christmas morning. My tween thinks it’s incredibly uncool and embarrassing. But I can’t help it. Everything seems new in spring and new is exciting.
Once we have a warm week or two (which we’ve finally had here in New York) I get itching to have flowers everywhere. Inside, outside, everywhere I look. Ellie, my 7-year-old, does too. “When are we gardening? Can we garden yet? Is it still so cold at night that it will kill all of our flowers? Flowers! Flowers! Flowers!” Ease up off me, kid!
My problem is not that I don’t love flowers. Obviously, I do. My problem is that I have not achieved my dream of plant lady status just yet.
Whether it’s too cold or not, my plants will die. I never remember to water the things! Plus, I always forget that the spot on our deck where I really want to put them is incredibly sunny. When I forget to water them, they bake and a lot of tender loving care is required to revive them. I realize this and am diligent and try really hard… until I forget again.
I’m a work in progress, alright? 😉
But I’m a sucker and I have a soft spot for flowers and for my daughter’s excitement over them and for seriously cute gardening tools.
Maybe, just maybe, if my daughter and I both have gardening tools that we adore, we’ll remember to use them all summer long.
