About Us

Kids Nature Shows - Reptile Shows for Kids - Birthday Party Shows VirginiaCaroline Seitz created Kids Nature Shows LLC in 2019 to further her mission of promoting education, empathy, and compassion for all creatures great and small.

“I hope to help make the world a better place by inspiring young hearts to care about the world around them.”

Before starting Kids Nature Shows, Caroline founded and was the director of Reptiles Alive LLC, a wildly successful traveling live reptile program. During her more than 30 years presenting educational live animal shows, Caroline learned a lot about how to connect with audiences of all ages.  Using all her gained knowledge and experience, Caroline is now super excited to offer fun and educational shows minus the live animals.

“The idea for Kids Nature Shows came to me a few years ago when I started getting asked by a variety of schools and other organizations if we could do a Reptiles Alive show without any live animals.  For a variety of reasons, various venues prohibit live animals but clients loved my shows so much they still wanted to book with us. The clincher came when I started including a puppet tadpole in my shows and when, after the shows, I asked the kids what their favorite animal was, many of them said “Tommy the Tadpole” – they loved the puppet better than any of live animals!”

Caroline’s kid-friendly presentation style combined with her expert knowledge of wildlife are what make Kids Nature Shows so unique and loved.

“[Caroline] Seitz’s passion for snakes was clear in our conversation, and I couldn’t help but be reminded of wildlife enthusiast Steve Irwin who challenged a lot of misconceptions about dangerous creatures… [Seitz] thought the world would be a kinder place for animals… Seitz discussed the suspicion of science she sees in the news and encounters in real life, a disheartening trend that can only have dire results. She summed it up memorably: “Irrational fear justifies a lot of cruelty.”

We would like to thank Cobra Caroline for coming to our school, The Alexander School of Early Learning and performing her Creepy Creatures puppet show for our students. Our Montessori and Pre-K classes were super excited and thrilled to have her. One of things that really impressed us was her ability to interact with and hold the attention of our school agers. She was insightful and informative. She was also very accommodating to the changes we were forced to make due to the COVID restrictions. We look forward to more visits from her and her puppet friends in the future. Ms. Tammy

Cobra Caroline came to make a presentation on reptiles to our 24 months through 5 year olds. She practiced our Covid protocols while she was here. She was very engaging and animated with the puppets. She shared information about each of the animals in developmentally appropriate terms. The children were very excited and enjoyed the presentation immensely! We will have her back again next year to present another one of her many choices for presentations.

Kids Nature Shows was such a wonderful experience for our preschool. Ms. Caroline is flexible, engaging with her audience, and highly knowledgeable about the material she shares. She does virtual and in person shows. We chose to do an in-person, outdoors and socially distanced show. The whole performance was magical. We look forward to working with her in the future.

Caroline does the best nature and educational shows in the business. I've been watching her shows for almost ten years, and nobody cares more about connecting with kids, and instilling an appreciation for the wonder of nature than Cobra Caroline. Kids Nature Shows elicit glee from the kids, because Caroline is so animated, and tells engaging stories. She really holds their attention, and even takes questions at the end of each show.

Cobra Caroline was an amazingly fun experience for our preschools! She was able to do a remote show that truly felt like we were there in the room. It was interesting, upbeat, and full of fun stories and facts about reptiles! 100% recommended for virtual shows, and I can only imagine how much more exciting it would be live!
