The Apron features 4 pockets along the base, perfect for storing small/light objects such as packets of seeds. It also has an adjustable tie around the waist to help it fit securely. Unfortunately the neck tie is fixed but it could be twisted into a knot or clipped to make it shorter as needed.
The Tool Bag features one large interior pocket and smaller pockets around the exterior of the bag. These comfortably accomodate the included tools and spray bottle but also leave room for other gardening gear such as seeds or gloves. Five of the exterior pockets also feature elastic straps to help hold the tools in place. The bag itself has two handles so the child can successfully carry it through the garden.
The mini tools feature smooth wooden handles with metal trowels/rakes.
The Water Spray Bottle is a miniature but fully-functioning spray bottle. It provides a great chance for a child to develop strength and dexterity in the hands and fingers. It is a useful tool for the garden but is particularly ideal for indoor plants. Using a watering can on an indoor plant requires a great deal of self-control and attention to detail to ensure that the plant is not overwatered. This can be challenging for a toddler and so the Spray Bottle provides an introductory level that sets the child up for success.
The Apron and Bag feature a delightful pattern, showing a cute elephant lifting back its trunk to spray water onto a little flower. At Montessori Child we promote gender neutrality and so we believe that this design is equally appropriate for all children!
