My daughter loves going for a swim and goes to the swimming pool every weekend. We decided not to put her into a formal swimming class and just allow her to enjoy splashing in the water and let her decide how she wanted to go further. She has learnt to float by herself and looks forward to her swim time every weekend.
This however has given rise to other problems. Every time she comes back from a swim, she has horrible sun tan. My mother is visiting us at the moment and she reminded me of this amazing home remedy that she used to make for us every now and then, specially after Holi celebration. I tried it and it does wonders. The best part is it is is really quick to make and can be used for children as well as adults. You might also remember it from your childhood.
