Best advice : read up on as much corn info & background as you can. I did this with grade primary's & they asked a ton of questions about everything you could imagine. The cleanser is great , stress it's use before the snakes come out. Be prepared to take lots of time with each child as they will all want a good turn or two at holding the snake. Sitting with everyone in a circle on the floor is best so the snake will not fall if dropped. Just in case it gets lose, snake proof the room as best as possible. And most of prepared to have fun !!
P.S. If they are all enjoying the snake , then letting it slither inside the circle is a huge hit.
Good luck, Dar.

also, permission slips from the childrens parents. Even with permission from the facility, failure to get permission from the parents may lead to problems and complaints.

How old are they? 3? I wouldn't let the children hold the snakes, and be very careful when they are touching the snakes... young kids have a tendency to be a bit rough. As forementioned, permissions slips/waivers are also a must.

legalities taken care of

luckily my sister is the supervisor there, permission slips have been done I would not have agreed to do this otherwise. the kids range in age from 7-10 so it's a good age group and i know most of them and their parents.
