kendalchalk2Kendal is ready for her swim lessons! Look at the size of that chalk she found at Target! Kids love to play with sidewalk chalk during their swim lessons. “Playing” with chalk is a great warm-up for swim lessons and helps to teach little swimmers how to put their faces in the water. Just think-no more tears! Children put their heads under the water and blow bubbles, drawing hearts, smiley faces and other funny things for their parents and swim teacher. The kids have no clue how long they are “under” there, blowing bubbles. The kids are just “swimming” and having fun.
