Sing a Swimming Song
Swimming pool, swim suit
My 21 month old and I took swimming lessons together and learned a fun song to sing in the pool. It's sung to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus" and is called the "The Kids in the Pool." You can add any actions you like, but some that we learned were: "The kids in the pool go splash, splash, splash...splash, splash, splash...splash, splash, splash...The kids in the pool go splash, splash, splash...all day long" (splashing hands in the pool while singing). Also, "The kids in the pool go kick, kick, kick...etc. (kicking feet while singing). The kids in the pool they blow their bubbles...etc. (child blows bubbles). The kids love this, and it is very helpful for getting apprehensive children interested in the water.
