If you are looking to get your kids involved in gardening one of the best ways is to give them some cool and fun gardening supplies to work with including their very own gardening gloves.
I know that my kids loved getting their own pair of gloves to wear while getting dirty in the garden and I liked the fact that even though they were getting into the dirt, their hands weren’t getting as dirty as they could have been.
Here are some gardening gloves for toddlers and older children that I found that would make great fun gifts to get your child interested in gardening this year.
Gardening Gloves for Kids
These garden gloves are perfect for kids as they offer protection but also flexibility so kids won’t get frustrated while trying to use tools in the dirt.
The larger elastic safety cuff at the wrist allows for easy on and off so kids can put the gloves on themselves and take them off with no problem as well. The cuff also protects your child’s hands from dirt and debris getting inside as well.
These gloves are recommended for kids ages 5-8 years old but you may find that that slightly younger and even older kids can fit the gloves as well.
This is a 3 pack of cute gardening gloves featuring different colored gloves and flowers. The gloves come in a breathable cotton and have a knit wristband so to keep dirt out of the gloves. These gloves come at a really good price for all three of the gloves so this may be a good option for a parent who has more than one child to buy gloves for.
Best Gardening Gloves For Toddlers and Preschoolers
Both girls and boys will love these fun gardening gloves featuring a Giddy Bug friend from Melissa & Doug toys.
The gloves have a latex rubber coating on the palms and at the top of the fingers so that kids can get a good grip on items and the rest of the glove is a soft cotton material.
These gloves do run a big big but they are recommended for ages 2 years to 5 years old.
Character Gardening Gloves for Kids
You most likely will be able to find a pair kid’s gardening gloves that features one of your child’s favorite characters from Dora the Explorer to SpongeBob SquarePants.This may be a good idea for a kid who may be hesitant about getting outside and getting dirty in the garden or maybe just for a kid who loves a certain character and has to have everything with them on it.
As I mentioned there are really so many choices available, but here are some of the more popular characters I found on kid’s gardening gloves. Some of the gloves also come with other matching gardening accessories and tools that are super cute and fun as well.

Buying your child a fun pair of gloves for the garden works well with younger kids around toddler and preschool age to help encourage them to get interested and have a good time planting and gardening outside. It may not work as well with older kids, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t buy them some fun garden gloves as well.
The thing that I like about surprising my kids with a pair of fun gardening gloves is that they don’t cost a lot and they really can get your child interested in playing in the garden just like mommy and daddy do. Gardening really can be a great way to get your child outside, having fun and even learning responsibility.
