One of the reasons I wrote Mitch and Mooch Try Swimming was that I had seen so many children turn up for their first swimming lesson and spend some of it sat by the side of the pool, or in tears clinging to parents. For some, they hadn’t equated swimming lessons with fun, getting silly (whilst being safe!) in the water and learning a new skill.
But as parents or carers, we can help prevent that by playing with our children so they can see how much fun the water can be! If you are stuck for some ideas – good news! I also wrote a FREE downloadable booklet – 10 Swimming Games and Tips – not all of which require water! Featuring dyslexia-friendly font and bright colours in a comic book style (just like the Mitch and Mooch Try series!), there is also an explanation of why these games will help prepare your child for swimming lessons.
So, why not try something new today? I’ll even give you a discount code for a SwimFin of your very own (as featured in the Mitch and Mooch Try Swimming book!) so you can play sharks. This discount code is exclusive and kindly supplied by our friends at SwimFin. All you need to do is pop in your email address and I will send you the link to download!
Why am I asking for your email address to download? Just so that I can stay in touch with you and ask how you got on with the games, any feedback you have and also to keep you posted on Mitch and Mooch news.
You can, of course, opt-out whenever you like and I promise never to share your details with anyone. If you don’t want to leave your email address, that’s fine – drop me a line here and I’ll send you a copy over anyway without adding your details.
I’d love to hear your feedback and if you have any other games ideas you would like featured in the booklet, just drop me a line!
