Outside work is one of the most satisfying activities we do with our children. I am excited to review the Garden Tote & Tools
from For Small Hands. This sturdy tote and child sized tools really complement our love for the outdoors.
“The child becomes a person through work.”
The Garden Tote & Tools
is an amazing set. I love the sturdy canvas tote with enough pockets to put all our gardening essentials inside. The colors are vibrant and very inviting. We used the tote and tools to plant our celery on a visit to our raised garden bed on the side of our new home.
I have been trying to overcome my black thumb and am determined to show my children that food can come from our own back yard. I’m sure my husband goes behind me every day to be sure the plants are still doing well and I have to call my family members on an almost daily basis to be sure I don’t kill anything!! It’s encouraging to know my kids love working in the garden and were ecstatic to use the new addition to our Montessori collection.
This season we re-grew celery from an organic celery base
we bought at the store. I would like to say I did wonderful and changed the water everyday…not so much. But I did notice the celery had some awesome regrowth and thought it would be best in the soil where it had some chance of getting nutrients.
Samuel (3.5) used the spade from our tools set to dig a small hole for our celery. He really loves blue so this was an easy choice with such inviting colors on these tools. Then Sam covered the celery with dirt. Pretty easy! Then we watered the new addition to our garden. Here’s to hoping the celery isn’t something the squirrels want to eat.
Avalyn (2) mimics about anything her big brother does and chose to use the rake to groom a section of our garden. I love how these tools are just right for her small hands!
I have no doubt this set will get a lot of use in our home for many years to come! Happy Gardening!
