|Children's Tools and Supplies|
Do you remember when your parents informed you, as a child, that you would have the "pleasure" of working in the yard? This usually meant pulling weeds or crawling along the back fence on your hands and knees clipping the grass by hand. You probably thought it was anything but "Fun"! Times have changed.
Today we trim the grass with string trimmers and prevent weeds with chemicals and bark mulch. Your children and grandchildren are much more aware of the environment than we were. They know that they have a role in protecting and beautifying the earth. Gardening is still America's #1 leisure activity. It can build strong family bonds, and you can show your children the satisfaction that comes from growing your own food or making your environment beautiful.
Children are natural gardeners. They're curious, like to learn by doing, and love to play in the dirt. Working in a garden, a child can experience the satisfaction that comes from caring for something over time, while observing the cycle of life firsthand. Gardening gives children a chance to learn an important life skill, one that is overlooked in standard school curriculums. Gardening is also a great way to teach environmental awareness by exploring the workings of nature.
There's nothing like savoring the fresh fruit from your own trees, or the corn from your own backyard. Nothing you buy from the store ever tastes so good. Teach your children to enjoy the garden now, and you are teaching them something they can enjoy for a lifetime.
Some of the gardening supplies we have for Children are: Butterfly nets, Insect Collection Jars, Ant Hills, Butterfly Gardens, Watering Cans, Childrens Gloves (Barbie, Dora, Scooby Doo, Diego, Sponge Bob) Hats, and Hand Tools.
