We know that it’s currently an uncertain and challenging time for everyone. To help we have put together some activity packs and some other ideas that will help you keep the children happy and entertained.
Swimming Home Activity Pack
As we aren’t currently able to offer your children their normal swimming lessons, we have developed a home activity swimming themed pack with plenty of swimming themed puzzles and games to keep them entertained.
There are word searches, puzzles, dot-to-dot and even the chance to design your own swimming hat – we would love to see your designs why not post them on our social media channels? There will be a prize for the best hat design received! Download your swim activity pack here
