This summer, I am working with SwimWays as one of their Ambassadors — using a variety of their products to help my kidlets become more comfortable and safe in the water.
The kidlets have spent several weeks now, turning into prunes at our neighborhood pool, splishing and splashing in their SwimWays floatation wear. The Little Lady has gotten brave enough to dip her ENTIRE chin in the water and Mr. Boy — well, the boy with no fear has learned how to regain his footing and “float” up when he stumbles in the kiddie pool.
(“Stumbles” might not be the right word — that boy LOVES to go under water and deliberately attempts the “real swimming moves” he sees demonstrated by the big kids. Sigh — he doesn’t believe he’s only 23 months.)
Now I get to share their products with others!
One winner will win his/her choice of the following two SwimWays products:
All the safety and performance features of the original SwimWays® Swimmies™ with a design so colorful and engaging your kids will be excited to wear them! The design combines a comfortable fabric cover with security features that maintain freedom of movement. This combination enables a child to gain confidence in their swimming abilities and begin swimming like a fish! (Ages 3-5 years)
Want your child to learn to swim like a fish? With the SwimWays® FishKicks™ board, children can kick their way through the water with some sea worthy friends. The full sized kickboard constructed of sturdy EVA foam comes in two fish-inspired styles – Angelfish and Clown Fish – each with a wobbling eye that kids will love! (Ages 5 years and up)
