I handed each of the teams 2 basic items…the same amount of tin foil and pipe cleaners. Their only instructions were to come up with something creative, and work together.

When I'm not teaching, I am a certified lifeguard and lifeguard instructor. I grew up in and around the water; and I have been lifeguarding for over 8 years and coaching a swim team for 4 years. My experiences with water safety have prompted me to create a line of products geared at helping kids learn to be safe around the water!This FREE product is a fun little poem that you can use to introduce or talk about water safety.
