These hot days of summer require drastic measures to keep cool and have fun with water. My daughter and her family found a way! We need to get the little one to get to like water on his face. This is a good way to lead into going under the water in the pool. Fun is the name of the game when it comes to swimming.
Put a toy on the step so that he has to put his face in the water to get it!
Don't let him forget, practice in the bathtub!
Even when he gets older, he needs to practice when not going to the pool!
