One of the first improvements we made to our new home was building a pool in our backyard. We love the spend family time together outside splashing around and swimming in our pool. It really it the centerpiece of our home, and the source of tons of fun family memories.
The reality is that having three small children in our home with a pool in the backyard means that we have to be extra cautious. It is imperative that each of our boys knows how to swim. Not only for fun, but for their own safety. Our two older boys have known how to swim for as long as I can remember. I was pregnant when we built our home and pool. Now that our littlest dude is old enough to want to enjoy the pool too, it’s time for him to learn how to swim!
International Learn to Swim Day
International Learn To Swim Day is the 3rd Saturday of May and will be held this year on May 18, 2019. Which means it’s the perfect time for my little guy to learn how to swim. National Learn to Swim Day was founded by SwimWays in 2012. This awesome day is dedicated to educating parents and children about water safety and the benefits of learning how to swim.
One of the ways we will be helping our youngest son to learn how to swim is with the SwimWays Paw Patrol Swim Trainer. My son loves the adorable Paw Patrol characters on the trainer! You can pick these up at Target (as if you needed another reason to go to Target, right?!) and it’s available with Chase or Skye on the front. I’ll be sharing all about our experience with the SwimWays Paw Patrol Swim Trainer in another blog post within the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that!
SwimWays has been a big part of helping to teach my older two boys how to swim, and we adore their family-friendly products. The Paw Patrol Swim Trainer is Swim Step 2 in the SwimWays Swim Step Program. It will ensure your child’s safety in the water and is even US Coast Guard approved! You can watch and learn more about the Swim Steps over at this SwimWays YouTube video.
