On the way home from swimming the other day, I was pondering the afternoon’s craft activity for the toddler. Insipration hit as I listened to the excited babble coming from the backseat about how well the small one had swum by himself (with the aid of floaties and the teacher hovering nearby). It was time for Pooh Bear to learn too!
I was a bit concerned that bears, particularly those of Pooh Bear’s shape & size, may not be particularly aqua-dynamic (is that a word? If aerodynamic relates to movement through air, then surely the water equivalent is aquadynamic?), so it was time to make Pooh Bear some floaties.
Armed with some felt, thread & wadding, we started stitching & stuffing. Mid-project, the overseer decided Pooh wanted back floaties, not arm floaties, so with a bit of cut-and-twist, the lowly pleb doing all the stitching managed to create a back-pack floatie thingy!
Now we can all relax when Pooh Bear is around water – he can float!
