Young children handling a ball python

My girlfriend's friend babysits 3 mentally handicapped children between the ages of 5 and 7. My girlfriend (without my knowledge) told her friend that she could bring the kids over to see and handle the snake. Now since this is all arranged already, I need some advice on how to let these children handle the snake? What should I say to them, and how should they hold the snake? I don't want one of them to be able to squeeze the snake and hurt it, but it would be nice if they could hold it SOMEHOW. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I am VERY protective of my snake. Oh yeah, the snake is only about 20'' long.

A good friend will come bail you out of jail.... but a true friend will be sitting next to you saying "Damn. We ****ed up!"
