Spring is in full swing, which means it’s time to add a little flower power to your life. 

Gardening is a great activity to do as a family. It gets everyone up, outside, and — something we know kids already love — sticking their hands in the dirt. And while watching kids pull on adult-size gardening gloves is for sure one of the cutest things in the world, if you want them to really get into the gardening game, a set of kid-size tools is just the thing to ensure success.

Hape’s Gardening Tool Set comes with a gorgeous green shovel, rake, trowel, and watering can perfectly sized for kids ages 4 and up. The best part about this set is that even though it’s designed for kids, these are real, effective gardening tools. Everything is made from eco-friendly, sustainable bamboo and long-lasting metal. Kids can get real work done in the garden, helping plant beautiful flowers, dig up weeds, and more. And while they are super sturdy, they are not pointy and are safe for younger kids to use.

The tools work well in dirt, soil, and even sand, so kids can bring these over to the beach or the sandbox when their flower beds are all picture perfect. The set also includes two bamboo labels, so kids can mark what they’ve planted and come back to track the growth. 

This set is genuinely built to last. I love that all of the tools fit neatly inside the watering can, which kids can use over and over again to give their plants some much-needed H20. The tools will help inspire an interest in nature and botany, while also helping families connect and make lasting memories together. 

Hape’s Gardening Tool Set encourages kids to get active, get involved in some meaningful family time, and learn a little bit about the world around them, all at an affordable price point. Consider this one a summer must-have.
