Swimming pools provide a great setting for kids to unwind, have fun and bond either with parents or their peers. Swimming is also one of those life skills every parent should teach their kids, at least for safety reasons if not fun. Ever wondered what sort of gift to buy a swimmer? Well, here is a list of 5 pool gift ideas.
There is a reason kid’s love waterparks so much. Even we parents sometimes get a kick out of all the fun and activities in waterparks. So as a parent, why not gift another parent, or kids for that matter with their own mini fun park in their backyard? They already have a pool and an inflatable pool slide will be a most welcome gift. A slide would make an already fun day even better for any kid. The thrill of getting into the water with a splash is one kids will always look forward to and love. Just remember to use it the right way. Do not let the children slide head down and make sure there is adult supervision every time the slide is in use.
Water sports are definitely a thing. They are also a chance for our kids to build muscle, be competitive and exercise. All of that while having fun. In case you have no idea on what to get your kids to make their pool days more fun, then you should consider the watermelon buoyant ball. The best bit about this one is that it actually does look and behave like a watermelon, less messy if it breaks in water though. It is partially filled with water to make it neutrally buoyant so it neither sinks nor floats. What this means is that unlike air-filled balls, this one can be kicked and passed or dribbled and bounced underwater. How cool is that?
As a parent, we are always on the lookout for our kids’ safety. A pool can be a hazard but it does not need to be. With pool safety nets, you as a parent can rest assured that this fun feature does not pose any danger to your crawling toddler or any other kid. The pool safety net’s openings are just the right size. They are sized such that a child’s head won’t fit through. They are also a perfect alternative for those who want a clear view of the pool instead of putting up a wall around it. You can as well use them to cover up any other water feature in a compound.
Any swimming enthusiast will tell you that safety comes first. And any parent will tell you their kids’ safety is their top most priority. Why then not get your kid a portable water buoyancy device for those unforeseen circumstances? In the case of an accident, one only needs to pull the lever and a balloon inflates providing buoyancy to the wearer. You will need to buy the CO2 cartridges separate as the floater does not come with them.
Most pools are adorned with incandescent bulbs which consume a lot of energy. A Color changing underwater LED lamp means less power consumption thanks to LED technology. The lamp also means you can have your pool illuminated in different colors thanks to its color changing properties. In a sense, it allows you to match your mood with whichever color suits you while you enjoy a swim. What more would anyone need right?
Lastly, it is important to remember to take every precaution to prevent any accidents especially as far as water activities are concerned. Either way, the above gadgets are guaranteed to spice up your kids’ pool or swimming life and even yours. If not with how fun they are, then for their safety capabilities.
