Keeping your kids occupied during the summer months is always a challenge. However, there is something that is guaranteed to stop your kids getting bored – a water slide inflatable!

A water slide inflatable is the perfect toy for summer. These are 6 feet or more tall slides that you inflate with air and place at the side of your swimming pool. Kids and adults slide down them into the pool with a splash.

All kids are like a bundle of energy looking to explode into action. It seems that kids first order of business ever day is to bounce, jump, slide, and generally be energetic – but only doing fun activities. So it is no wonder they get all hot and sweaty… and a little stinky too.

But with a water slide inflatable, they are in and out of the pool all day and do not get hot and sweaty. So, they get all the benefits of exercise, but without that sweaty stink.

In addition, any kid having a birthday party in summer who has a water slide inflatable, instantly becomes the kid to know, and very popular.

So when you are planning your child’s next birthday party (or any party), you should consider making it a poolside event and include a water slide inflatable in your requirements. You can be sure that the party guests will be magnetically drawn to the water slide. If you organize the party right, the guests will be praising and copying you when they plan an event.

Your choice as to what water slide inflatable to get is vast. They range from the simple pool water slide to large complicated structures, and every kind of variation imaginable in between.

All water slide inflatables are supplied with an air pump, which remains connected to the slide and pumping all the while the water slide is in use. This is to ensure that the water slide remains firm at all times, which is needed when you have a bunch of kids climbing all over the structure.

You connect a garden hose to the water slide, and the water flows out of numerous holes along the length of the slide. This creates the effect of water gushing down the chute just like in a water park.

Because the water slides are inflatable, they are easily dismantled at the end of play and packed away to a surprisingly small package.

You certainly will find a water slide inflatable that is just right for your situation due to the variety of sizes and shapes available. They range from the simple water slide, right up to full-blown water park type structures. The only limitation is the size of your backyard.

Learning to swim is something everyone should do – although it’s not nearly as easy as it looks. Toddlers often develop totally irrational fears – they’re learning how to control and manipulate their environment and the best way they can do this is by causing a big fuss if they don’t want to do something! The one place they are likely to feel most out of control is in the swimming pool – they can’t float, they can’t breathe underwater,they lose contact with the ground and are continually being forced to do things they don’t want to do by you – their parent! The answer is to help the child feel at ease in the water from a very early age. A confident child will learn to swim much faster than a nervous child.

So how do you get a very young child (less than a year old) to be more confidant in the water? Babies have a little known and not very well understood reflex. When you blow on their face they take a small breath in. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Cradle your child in one arm and try to maintain eye contact.
  2. Count down from 3 out loud and then blow gently on their face.
  3. When you see them inhale (, be certain they have!)
  4. Lower them quickly into the water, just up to the top of their nose. 
  5. As they have just inhaled their natural reaction will be to breathe out and blow bubbles. Bring them straight back out again. They will probably look a bit startled at this point but should otherwise be fine.

Over time and repetition you can increase the depth to which you are submerging them.. This technique will build water confidence and familiarity so that when they start having proper swimming lessons they should be much more receptive and manageable in the pool.

Learning to swim is something everyone should do – although it’s not nearly as easy as it looks. Children are often terrified of water – They know what they want to do and what they don’t and the most effective way they can do this is by causing a big fuss if they don’t want to do something! The swimming pool is a totally foreign environment – they’re weightless, it’s noisy  and feels pretty darn weird underwater,they lose contact with the ground and are continually being forced to do things they don’t want to do by you – their parent! The answer is to get the child familiarised with water from a very early age so that they don’t feel nervous or out of control. A confident child will learn to swim much faster than a nervous child.

So how do you get a very young child (less than a year old) to be more confidant in the water? Babies, or toddlers under a year old have a reflex action that you can use to help them feel more comfortable underwater. By breathing gently on their face they will take a small breath in. These are the steps to put this to use:

  1. Hold you child in on arm with them facing you.
  2. Count down from 3 out loud and then gently blow on their face
  3. You should see them inhale (, make sure they do.)
  4. Submerge them very briefly just up to the top of their nose. 
  5. Because they have inhaled they will blow some bubbles out. Bring them straight back out again. They may look quite startled at this point but should not be choking or swallowing any water.

Over time and repetition you can increase the depth to which you are submerging them.. This will really help them get used to water so when they start swimming lessons  they will have a much easier time of it.

Teaching a very young child to swim can be extremely challenging.

So what can you do to help your baby acclimatise to water and avoid the stress that most children endure? Babies have a little known and not very well understood reflex. When you blow on their face they take a small breath in. These are the steps to put this to use:

A child that is comfortable and secure in the water will learn to swim a lot easier than a child that is scared.
