You Will Need:
Dry pet food, metal measuring cup, pet food bowl
Keep a measuring cup with the supply of dry pet food. Encourage your toddler to scoop food from the large supply into your pet’s bowl. If your pet doesn’t need a full measuring cup, draw a line on the inside of the cup and explain to your child that he only needs to fill the cup to the line to give to your pet.
Talk about the importance of taking responsibility for caring for your pet. Explain why your pet needs to be fed each day.
