Plastic egg in snake habitat

Easter is coming up, and that means everything eggs. We’re a bit partial to this holiday, considering many reptiles lay eggs and all.

So why should chickens and weird bunnies get all the attention? (We’re still not quite sure how the whole bunny and egg thing works…)

Plus, the Tye-Dyed Iguana team happens to love any opportunity to get families exploring exotic pets together.

So we’re hosting our 2nd Annual Eggcellent Celebration on Sunday, April 14 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Read on to find out more about how we celebrate egg day.

Everyone’s invited

This event is for kids and parents. The store will be open to regular patrons during the celebration, as well.

We’ll have activities going on for all ages of kids. Most of the activities will be sectioned off in our party area in the back of the store.

The primary exception to that is our in-store scavenger hunt, where kids will be able to explore the store and look at different reptiles, trying to find the habitats that have an Easter egg hidden inside.

The scavenger hunt is a lot of fun for the older kids who want to get a look at the animals. Younger kids can participate too, with the help of an adult or older sibling.

And it’s all free; no obligation to purchase anything while you’re in the store. We just want everybody to have a good time. So go ahead and tell your friends about it.

What kind of activities are there?

There will be plenty of things for your kiddos to do. Here’s what we have planned:

  • Say “hi” to the Easter bunny and take a photo of your kid with the bunny;
  • Allow kids to get some face art at our face painting area;
  • Watch your kid decorate their own egg to take with them;
  • Did we also mention that there’s a scavenger hunt?

During the scavenger hunt, you’ll get to learn more about the reptiles and amphibians in our store.

Snacks and facts

In addition to activities, free snacks will also be available for anyone who attends.

While you’re waiting for the party date to roll around, here are some facts to chew on about reptile eggs…

  • Unlike bird eggs, most reptiles’ eggs are soft and leathery rather than hard and brittle.
  • Many reptiles also form a nest area for incubating their eggs.
  • Baby snakes and lizards have a temporary egg tooth used to tear through the egg shell.
