Pop! Pop! Pop! Little Polly’s!
This fun game is full of big, bright balloons for each child to “pop” while sitting on it. Kids always loved balloons and balloon games. Today little Polly’s enjoy popping balloons outside while preparing to splash into the water.
After the balloon games, they hurriedly jump and splashed into the water. Childhood is the best time to prepare children for a life of safe aquatic participation. These experiences enable each child to increase their own confidence and further develop cognitively, socially and physically. They were all very happy today to spend all the energy on water games and in the things that they like the most.

Swimming will not be complete without warm up activities. Preparing the children for their water activity, prior to that they did some dance and singing. They also played “Balloon Race” game, a balloon was put in between their legs and run to win the game. Playing this game involve them to take turns, wait for their turn, patience, and learn how to be a good sport. Children gained more experience with both winning and losing.
