A great way to really get your child excited about gardening is by surprising them with their own kid-sized gardening tools . For starters, I suggest a watering can, set of hand tools, garden markers, and a pair of brightly colored gloves. Also, after your child has planted their seeds, give them a set of garden markers to mark which seeds are which. This way, your child will remember where they planted the carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes. And since children love to dress the part, that will show more interest in gardening when they are in full gear.
