Activity 1 | Make a Lizard Snack

Provide raw vegetables (spinach leaves, romaine lettuce, carrots, squash, zucchini), a cutting board and plastic knife. Show your child how to cut the vegetables. Talk about how Iguanas are mostly herbivorous (they mostly eat plants! Specifically, they are folivores,an animal that feeds on leaves). Take turns trying the different vegetables. Add them to a bowl to make a salad!

Activity 2 | Make a Snake

Use salt dough, clay or play-dough to make your very own snake zoo. If you use clay or salt dough, baking the finished product would give the child an opportunity to paint their snake creations and keep long term. You could even use an old shoe box to make a ‘house’ for the snakes!

Activity 3 | Visit the Pet Store

Take a trip to the local pet store to look at iguanas, lizards, and snakes in person. If you have a pass to the zoo, this would be a great week to go! Make sure to check out these exotic pets up close. Talk about what makes these little creatures different from other animals.
