Nothing makes little kids feel more like big kids than their own pint-size gear. Here are some gardening basics that will serve children (and their grown-ups) well in the garden.
Invest in some flexible child-sized gardening gloves. Even if your kids love to get dirty (believe me, they'll manage to do that anyway), they'll be thrilled with this bit of gear. Waterproof Mudd Gloves are cotton dipped in green rubber for a comfortable, no-slip grip.
