It was an eye-opening experience for me, when at age 8, I caught a fish with a kid's rod and reel. How the fish missed seeing the super-thick white line or the goofy hook is beyond me, and of course he couldn't see the short and ultra-simple equipment in my hand. The fact is, though, that he fell for the worm, and from then on I came to believe that tools put in kids' hands could do the same thing as the serious grown-up ones in adults' hands.
From big sheets and a few friends to fruit-picker baskets and pole pruners, these tips and tools will make the job easier.
Keep kids happily occupied during the hectic gardening season by creating a kid-friendly outdoor gardening studio.
