Teach your child to swim, learning games/the sharks coming - leg kick

Using toys to help encourage and assist you with teaching points....

Sometimes depending on the nature of the child it may be hard to get them to swim once they have found they can float ....
to help the child kick their legs use a fish or shark toy and chase them with it telling them that it is chasing them and will bite their toes

Thanks ash for your idea, that’s an inventive idea I’m assuming you’ve tried it :). Like you said it depends on the nature of the child’s some children would be scared to death of a shark chasing them. But I’m sure there are plenty of things we can use instead....like a crocodile or snake etc

Thanks again ash for your idea...keep them coming

Dale :)
