Learn to Swim games - Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt is a fun game which helps children develop a number of core aquatic skills.

How to play Treasure Hunt

During the Treasure Hunt, toys are scattered around the pool area and the children must gather as many pieces of treasure as possible, returning them to the side of the pool.

This allows them to travel around the pool in a variety of ways and explore their own abilities.

By picking up objects which are submerged, they will also work on their aquatic breathing, streamlining, travel and coordination.
