Swimming is a huge part of summer fun for kids! Swimming at the pool, at the beach, dips in the lake and splashing at the waterpark. As fun as it is enjoying all the water play to be had, it's also very important to practice water safety. By teaching your child to swim you are teaching them an invaluable life skill, one they will enjoy and one that may save their life.

Swimways is committed to helping children learn to swim and promoting water safety. May 21st is National Learn to Swim Day, an annual celebration started by Swimways in 2012 to educate parents and children about water safety and the importance and benefits of learning to swim.

We used the Swimways Baby Spring Float when we first introduced our son to the water. He loved splashing around as we pulled him along and it really calmed my worries to know he was safe as we took those first steps. Soon enough he was kicking his feet and paddling his arms with confidence.

The Swimways Baby Spring Float is the best float you'll find and an excellent way to introduce your baby to the water. I love that it folds up and is easy to just pop in our pool bag or pack up for when we travel.

May 21st is National Learn to Swim Day. It's the perfect opportunity for you to help raise awareness about the importance of learning to swim. Help spread the message by sharing how you plan on teaching your child to swim and what fun water play you're looking forward to this summer.
