Did you know that snakes and lizards make up the largest number of different reptiles? This is just one of the interesting, fun facts that kids can learn about during Kids’ Holiday Pet Club at Pets at Home this half term.

Pets at Home colleagues will be on hand to share their knowledge on all things fishy or scaled, teaching children how to care for reptiles in a responsible but fun and interactive way.

Children taking part will learn all about different types of fish and reptiles as well as information and advice any budding pet owner needs to know before taking on the responsibility of a pet, such as what they eat, how to feed them and how each of them have their own unique needs. 

From freshwater and tropical fish, to bearded dragons and leopard geckos, children will get to meet and greet the ‘stars’ of the workshop.

A spokesperson for Pets at Home said: “Fish and reptiles make extremely rewarding pets, especially for older children. The free workshops are a chance for the young pet lovers to engage with our colleagues who will be able to offer tips and advice on pet care, whilst making the workshops fun and interactive.

“To make sure the children get the chance to be as hands-on as possible, they’ll also be given the chance to meet the stars of the workshops.”

After completing the workshops, each child will receive a certificate and sticker, along with a pet promise card where they make their pledge to look after any pet they have according to the five welfare needs.
