Fun with Noodle Boats

Why: To practice Buoyancy, Balance and Movement with the help of equipment.

How: Have parent place the student into the noodle boats facing the ring then gently tighten the ring. Be sure the student is positioned so that the noodle is at their armpits and their back is against the curve of the noodle.  This creates a batter feeling of balance and results in the student being more comfortable in the noodle boat.  Note; Place a small plastic ball under an infants chin if they are not able to independently hold their head up. FOR MORE ADVANCED STUDENTS; Encourage parents to lessen or remove their support of the noodle to allow student to feel buoyancy and balance while being less supported.
