In additon to Elmer's excellent advice:
Going back to junior high shop class, I think it would be a good idea to keep the stencilled names and outlines of the tools on the shed wall behind the hooks that will store them ( in fact, I think that's a great idea for grown-up garden sheds
On safety and insurance:
1) Get garden insurance.
2) Create a form for parents to sign with "at your risk" language
3) Set up safety rules (i.e., no kids in shed without adult supervision, etc., no sword fighting with trowels and no, we don't care if your parents let you see "Gladiator" with Russel Crowe, no fooling with pitch forks!)
Seriously, take a mental walk through your proposed shed, imagine yourself as Dennis the Menace and try to fool proof the place.
Great luck!

Besides a bench in the "Children"s Shed," consideration should be given to
pot storage area, soil storage bins for various mixture components,  storage
of tools to be used in conjunction with it and lighting  (natural or
artificial or both).  Flooring type-easily cleaned, etc..  The base should be
secure so that critters can't use it for housing.  The shed itself should be
critter proof.  Mice can squeeze through the smallest cracks.  Seed storage
in an organized manner in a secure space should also be considered.
