The start of something extraordinary

Dryland Activities

Swimming in clothes can be a valuable lesson for all swimmers to take part in. Start on land with two big buckets of water - one filled with clothes and the other filled with togs. Get the kids to feel the weight of the clothes and the togs by pulling them from the water. Which ones are heavier? Discuss how this transfers to the pool/river/beach etc. Encourage your children to always swim in correct swimwear.
