Swim & Splash with Dory this Summer

 

With summer in full swim why not make the most of your time in the pool and get your kids more and more water confident with some great pool games! Products like the Zoggs Finding Dory Learn to Swim range include pool toys for all stages of swimming ability, and can be used to increase your child’s confidence in the water by using them as part of a number of exciting pool games! 


Start little, grow big…

Getting confident in the water is a very big thing! Why not start small with water squirting toys. You don’t even need to be at the pool. Squirting toys like Zoggs Finding Dory Little Squirts are great for bath time! Show your little one how fun splashing, squeezing and squirting can be when all their favourite characters are involved! Develop confidence playing in the bath, and when your child is ready bring your squirting toys along to the pool. Squirt toys can be used on mummy daddy, brother, sister or even on other squirt toys! A great way to raise water confidence amongst little ones.

 

Catch the characters!

Dory is getting away - time to catch her! Push a soft character soaker just over arms distance from your little one and help them paddle their way to catch them! Sponge like toys are great in getting your child to feel more confident in the water. Try trickling, flicking and splashing around with toys your child is familiar with! Encourage movement within the water, with reaching the toy as the big achievement! Young kids especially feel more confident with toys and characters they know and love. Next time try bringing a number of soft pool toys and see if your child can catch them all!
 

Time to go under…

Once happy with being above the water, it’s time to go under! Dive and retrieve games are great for more confident swimmers and is perfect for kids looking to practicing underwater movement technique. Throwing objects which sink to the bottom of the pool are a great competitive game for those who are confident enough to swim unaided. Dive sticks such as those in Zoggs Finding Dory range can be great for a number of game ideas! Why not allocate points to each character stick and see who is crowned the winner after three rounds? Or perhaps a musical chairs style game where each round has one less stick to retrieve; there can only be one winner!

Zogg’s Finding Dory Learn to Swim range is perfect for these and many more game ideas. Available to purchase at our leisure sites or find out more at Zoggs.com.

Just keep swimming this #summer and enjoy #ActiveFun at our #Place!
