Children can find out about snakes and lizards this half-term with special workshops at a Blackpool pet shop.

Pets at Home, in South Shore, is holding a Kids Holiday Pet Club next week and will have experts on hand to share their knowledge of all things fishy or scaled, teaching children how to care for reptiles and fish, but having fun along the way.

Youngsters taking part will be able to learn about all the different types of fish and reptiles and meet and greet some of the ‘stars’ of the workshop.

Heather Cook, store manager, said: “Fish and reptiles make extremely rewarding pets, especially for older children.

“The free workshops are a chance for the young pet lovers of Blackpool to engage with our colleagues who will be able to offer tips and advice on pet care, while 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 animals.”

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.
