Once your child has mastered floating, they should learn how to kick their legs and blow bubbles.
After they learn how to float, other skills toddlers should learn include:
- How to blow bubbles — to get used to their face being wet and avoid swallowing water.
- How to kick their legs — always with an almost straight leg, and alternating legs.
Kicking can best be taught by having them hold on to the edge of the pool, so they can keep their head above water.
