Swimming Aids for Children; Floats and Arm
Swimming aids for children give them and you the confidence they need to
relax and enjoy your holiday by the pool. We've selected our
favourites for you available online.
Our favourite swimming aid
for children has to be the Swimfin. Developed by a UK
swimming teacher, children wear it on their backs. It gives kids
learning to swim
good stability and buoyancy in the water, but also the freedom to move
their arms while learning to swim. Take a peek over at
where the swimfin qualifies for free super saver delivery. It's
available in 7 different colours including Angelfish Pink, Killer
whale black and Goldfish Orange (as seen right).
The swimfin secures with two straps and can be worn over a UV suit or
rash vest for safe summer swimming.
...or noodle, or churro, or whatever you call it! This long thin
float is great for kids learning to swim. For beginners, you must
be in the water with them. But you can wrap it under their arms,
under their bellies or ride it like a horse. They have the freedom
to move their arms when learning to swim and as they get more confident,
to be able to start letting go of it. You can buy them from
Amazon, but we'd recommend for your holiday, that you buy one when you
get there. Most seaside resorts sell them at beach front shops.
Swim floats and armbands.
If you're looking for more traditional swim armbands, which can deflate
for easier packing on your holiday, then try these swimming aids from
Speedo. They are available from John Lewis in these fab and funky
colours. Click on one of the images below to be taken to the John
When children are confident swimming, they have more fun and when they
have more fun swimming, they build their confidence!
