BEST SPRING ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS AND THEIR PETS
Our little flurry friends need some fun and games too, and spring is perfect for kids to put together their ideas on what activities they’d like to enjoy with their pets.
Here’s IKEA’s list of things to do that your kids can draw inspiration from.
The whole family can join in on this one. Most animals love the beach, so going for a walk along the shore will allow them to play in the water.
Make sure the leash is on firmly though or that they are properly trained.
If you have a garden, get a sandbox or rope off a play area for the pets can run around in. This is the perfect spring time gift that they’ll love you for.
Spring is a time for sweet treats for everyone, so make sure you bake some for your pets too. Get pet-friendly recipes online and treat your little buddies to baked goodies.
If you have dogs or cats, they will enjoy having their own hunt for sweet treats!
Make sure you place the treats in place that are easily accessible for them.
BBQ in the backyard
IKEA’s personal favourite, BBQs are an enjoyable time for everyone.
Filled with good food, fun and laughter, pets too will love the little bites of food and cuddles they get from everyone present.
A change of venue for their curious little personalities, the farmers’ market could be a perfect trip to make on sunny spring day.
Especially for dog owners, you know winter is simply too cold, and summer is too warm.
So, spring is the perfect time to get your pets outside for some games and the good kind of exercise that your pets need.
Playdate in the Park
Take your furry buddies to the parks this spring so they can visit their friends and have a playdate. You could pack a picnic for both you and them to make it more exciting.
Spring cleaning is important for these little critters too! Get all your pet supplies and food stocks organised in appropriate storage.
Clear out the winter bedding, cages and other material and replace them with some brightly-coloured supplies that spell spring all the way.
