We start out by playing Simon Says -- Simon says, kick your feet in the water; Simon says, wash your leg; Simon says, take a shower (sprinkle water on baby's head). Then we get in the water.
The group sings a song and travels in a circle to get the babies used to the water. Then we do some gliding through the water on their tummies with their hands out. Some gliding with feet kicking, maybe some moving of the arms.
We quickly move into Free Swim where we get to play with noodles and body boards and of course our baby!
We end with another song with some actions and that is it.
Olivia has done really well with being in the water. She really loves watching everyone else, drinking the water, and splashing!
I am so happy that she is comfortable in the water. We spend a lot of time in the summers at the lake and want her to enjoy it too!
