Hosting a petting zoo celebration on your child's birthday presents amazing, fun enjoyment that may maintain even quite young children mesmerized.
Few get together routines are more fascinating to very small tots-and more mature children-than petting and feeding mild furry and feathered cattle, suggests Melanie Pien, proprietor of Pied Piper Pony Rides & Petting Zoo, in Carmel, New York.Get More Info here Houston Petting Zoo
"Kids get to touch and pet a variety of different animals. They love the different feels of each one," states Pien, who has run the family business for 20 years, and whose company does between 600 and 700 functions a year.
Many adults love the animals as much as kids do, Pien notes. "Some people rent specific animals for the kids and other animals for the parents."
Pien recommends that for quite younger small children, the petting zoo alone (without pony rides) is probably the best idea. More mature children will much more likely enjoy the pony rides and won't be frightened.
Other advice for parents considering a petting zoo for their kids' functions:
Equally important, she notes, have running water, soap, and disposable towels available for thorough hand washing immediately after small children touch the animals and before they continue with any other occasion routines. Adults should carefully supervise hand washing for all children-especially, those under age five.
