We’re officially in SUMMER!
When it comes to summer activities swimming is on the top of our list. Because of this, it is extremely important to us that children understand the basics of water safety and are able to follow the basic water safety rules. With a little pre-planning and education, it is entirely possible to keep kids (and their friends) safe and enjoying the pool, season after season!
Fun & Educational Video
We found this short (12 min), engaging and age-appropriate YouTube video that teaches kids how to be “Water Safety Smart.” Who can say no to Disney’s comedy duo, Timon and Pumbaa?? Watch it with the whole family!
Don’t have a pool to enjoy?
Here’s some ideas as well as our new favorite site swimply.com if you’re looking to rent a private pool for your next event or to beat the summer heat. One of our team members just hosted a birthday party at a swimply.com pool and had a memorable time with her family.
Private pool alternatives:
- Community and City pools
- Beaches and lakes
- Water parks and water slides
- Staycation at a hotel pool
- Get a kiddie pool or Slip-n-Slide
Wherever you end up to stay cool this summer, we hope you have an enjoyable one!
