Time to Play! Side Breathing

Kids learn by playing. The more you can make learning to swim fun for your kids, the more they’ll like it, the quicker they’ll learn, and the more fun you’ll have teaching them.  This game will help your kids practice an exaggerated rolling motion that will help them learn to rotate their bodies while they swim. That rotation makes side breathing easier.

Can your kids roll in the water like otters? Go to an aquarium or watch videos of otters playing. Remember, if you get the giggles, you’re more likely to gulp water, so take breaks as needed.

  1. This site has really helped me get ready to teach my kids how to swim. I spent thousands of dollars teaching my first child how to swim but now I feel confident I can teach my two year old myself. Thanks!
