Involving young children in the care of a pet can sometimes be a challenge, yet finding a way for small children to care for animals also provides tremendous benefits in terms of the development of empathy, compassion and respect for all living things.
For older kids, taking part in the daily care of a pet can be very rewarding, but sometimes it’s fun to take a break from scooping all that poop to create a fun project that your pet friend will love.
Today on the blog, we’re bringing you a fun project for kids (and adults!) of all ages… the kitty salad bar! (We also have some cool facts about why cats have to eat meat).
Expert hint: We are talking about cats today, but you can replace the plants with species-appropriate options to create an indoor salad bar for just about any type of pet.
What?! A cat salad bar?!
