From Summer Activities for Children, Part 1:
Take your child and a pet out to play. If you don’t have a pet, borrow a neighbor’s pet.
Where to take the pet will depend on the type of animal. For many it might be a park. For others it could be your yard or just letting them out of their cages in the house for some free playtime.
* Be sure to select a place that will be safe for the type of animal.
* Be sure birds are protected from predators and from flying away.
* Some pets can’t be “taken out to play” at all because moving them is dangerous to them – like fish.
