Practice kicking and floating in the bathtub in the cold months

It is important that your young child not forget to swim during the cold months.  There are lots of things you can do in the bathtub.  Look at my dvd for ideas.

Teach your babies to go under the water.  Have your child put the babies under the water counting to three...


Put all her favorite baby dolls (or action figures) in the tub and teach them to float.  Then, have your child float too!
She doesn't like to float but will soon like it more!

You can teach your child the meaning of kicking in the water.  If your child gets used to kicking in the tub, he will kick on his belly in the water so much faster.
