For families looking for a fun activity to do once the schools have broken up, Pets at Home is hosting a series of fun and free interactive pet workshops during the summer holidays. Taking place in stores across West Midlands, the workshops will educate attendees about how to look after animals as pets and are aimed at children between the ages of 5-11.
The My Pet Pals workshops offer hands-on activities to educate the next generation of pet owners about keeping pets safe, happy and healthy. Children can expect to find out about the fascinating world of pets, with interactive games and ‘meet and greet’ sessions with Pets at Home’s friendly pets.
Kerry Boulton store manager at the Pets at Home Oldbury store, said: “Our My Pet Pals workshops are a fun way to give young animal lovers the chance to learn the importance of pet welfare. The workshops are hosted by our friendly and knowledgeable pet care advisors, who are on hand to ensure future pet owners are fully equipped with everything they need to know about owning a pet.”
Following the workshops, children are invited to enter the My Pet Pals Summer Challenges Competition, where they will be encouraged to complete an interactive activity book made up of exciting tasks to be completed over the summer for the chance to win a fantastic prize*.
The free workshops will teach children how to keep pets cool over the warm summer months, as well as how to become the best fish owner they can be. The workshops last approximately 30 minutes and take place every day in stores at 11.30am during the summer holidays.
