In the first of my posts on saturday kids activities comes something that my eldest little girl does every Saturday- swimming lessons.
She started lessons when she was about 2 1/2 as we felt that it was important that she was comfortable in the water and learnt to swim so that she could be safe around water. She has always loved her lessons and now is a very able swimmer for a 5 year old!
Daddy does the swimming lessons on a Saturday morning. It gives him a chance of some alone time with the girls and me a chance to have a long hot bath and relax at home! Sometimes I go along, and after lessons we all jump in the pool and have a family swim.
It really is enjoyable not just for the kids but for us all as a family. It is a healthy, active kids activity which we all enjoy every Saturday!
