Reptile birthday parties, great for kids!

February 22nd, 2017 | dec | Tags:

A reptile birthday party brings together a perfect blend of thrills, education and entertainment, to create the kind of event that both children and adults alike will remember for many years to come. From corn snakes and boa constrictors to tortoises and bearded dragons, our reptile birthday parties provide children with a scintillating but safe opportunity to get up close and personal with a wide range of creatures.

Reptile birthday party ideas in London

During a party, children will learn all about the individual reptiles, including details of how they live in the wild, how we feed them and how we ensure they are as happy and healthy as possible. Depending on the package you choose, your party may also include the feeding of snakes and lizards, and even certificates of bravery for everyone who volunteers to handle a reptile.

Shows typically last an hour and are suitable for those aged five and upwards. You can also extend the theme before and after the animal show, by arranging your own pre-presentation party games such as reptile egg hunts or asking everyone to come in fancy dress. We have many years of experience in coming up with great reptile birthday party ideas in London, so don’t hesitate to ask for tips.

We are passionate about animals and love having the opportunity to pass this enthusiasm on to others. With animals from countries all around the world, each session includes elements of geography, science and environmental issues, all presented in a lively and engaging manner that ensures enormous fun for all.

Hands-on experience

Children who have pets at home will know first-hand how soft and cuddly mammals can be, but few will have any idea what it feels like to hold a lizard in the palm of their hand or have a snake slither across their fingers. Seeing reptiles being handled in this way and having a hands-on experience can go a long way towards reducing common fears and misconceptions that all such creatures are dangerous. There will be plenty of opportunities to take pictures to capture the events of the day.

None of the reptiles in our collection are aggressive or venomous, and all of them are used to being around children. If you have pets of your own, they should be kept away during the party. The welfare of our animals is a prime concern, so if there are a large number of children, it may not be possible for everyone that volunteers to handle a reptile to have the opportunity to do so. It is also not possible to guarantee a specific reptile for an event, as their availability will depend on the overall schedule of that animal.

Although reptiles are in high demand, we must not forget all of our other animal friends. There are a wide selection and all would be absolutely fantastic to entertain your kiddies! So don’t settle for balloon animals – go for the real thing instead. Let us bring our fascinating collection of reptiles into your home and give your children and their friends the chance to experience the natural world in a whole new way.
