Preparing for Spring

Melissa & Doug Rake

Despite the falling snow here in NJ,  I’m gearing up for Spring!  (it has to be coming soon, right?)  I’ve been perusing my seed and plant catalogs and have begun thinking about what I’d like to plant in my garden this year.   Our garden not only provides us with vegetables all summer long, it is a haven for fun, peace & relaxation.  The kids love to help in the garden and I’m always eager to find kids’ gardening tools that aren’t plastic (our recycle bin is tired of broken plastic shovels).  Yesterday, I popped over to Toys R Us and found the most adorable AND functional metal gardening tools for kids.  They are made by Melissa and Doug and are sturdy and safe.  There are no jagged corners and no sharp ends.  The set offers a rake, a hoe, a shovel, a trowel, a cultivator, watering cans, as well as some other odds and ends like sprinklers, lawn games, gardening gloves, sunglasses, a gardening tote, umbrellas, and a bug magnifying glass.  I know a few items that are going to make their way into my kids’ Easter baskets.  Check out the entire Sunny Patch line here and THINK SPRING!
