Make sure you bring some kind of anti-bacterial sterilizer for the kids after they touch the animals. Do not necessarily allow the kids to hold them at first, but ask for a few volunteers to come up and touch or hold half the animal while you hold the rest of the animal. I know of a friend who does snake shows and two kids began arguing over a snake and ended up breaking its neck. Do not force anyone to touch the herps if they do not wnat to. Let some brave volunteers do it first and more than likely many of the kids will warm up and want to touch them. Just be careful, do not let the animals get too stressed, make sure everyone washes their hands, and DO NOT LET ANYONE RECEIVE A BITE. If a kid get a bite, there will be hell to pay...Good luck to you and have though. Always good to inform kids about herps.
