The start of something extraordinary

Milk Bottles

An easy way to give children the confidence to float on their back.  Holding onto 2 milk bottles gives stability to lift their legs to the surface while feeling relaxed and comfortable. It is ideal for children that are still developing fine motor skills (easier to hold and manage than a kick board) and easy to manoeuvre allowing them to find their ‘balance’. The bottles are low cost and can be stored in a ball bag.
