Help the kids work and play in the garden with the best kids garden tools including durable and easy to use gloves, spades, rakes, wagons, watering cans, and more!
Kids Garden Tools
We’ve gone through a lot of gardening tools over the years and some have held up better than others. And while you definitely don’t need anything fancy to get the kids into the garden to help you plant and harvest and play, there are some tools that are helpful for the kids to have. These garden tools are kid-size, durable, and low cost.
They’re also effective and actually work—because it’s really frustrating for little kids who want to help to have tools that are more toys than tools!
We’ve had this set of tools for over two years and they’re still in good shape! We store them in the garage with our “real” tools and the kids love that they look just like ours. My 3 year old and 7 year old can both comfortably use these tools.
Set of 3 Mini Garden Tools, $10.95
If you’re looking for a simple place to start with gardening, this little tool set is a great option. We actually made a pile of dirt for our kids and they happily dig and rake in it for hours—though clearly they work for gardening too!
Set the kids up with everything they need to help in the garden with this set that includes kids gardening gloves, a little watering can, gardening tools, and a bag to carry and store it all in. I love that this will help keep track of everything since there’s a clear place to store it all!
TIP: If that one is out of stock, this gardening set is similar!
These kid-size gardening gloves are easy to put on and off and help the kids grip their tools while they work. (They may be too big for one year olds, but are a great size for kids 2-5.) They also come in a fun and bright yellow color!
My one-year-old got this wagon for his birthday and loves to pull it around everywhere he goes. I imagine he’ll start to fill it up once he starts to be brave enough to explore more of our yard this summer!
HABA Kids Watering Can, $12.99
This bright red kid-size watering can is easy to carry and pour from. And it’s just the right size and won’t be too heavy for a toddler to comfortably carry. (If that one is out of stock, you can find more of my favorite watering cans here.)
