Connecting with your loved ones is incredibly important, but in today’s modern age, many families struggle to find fun ways to pass the time that everyone enjoys.
But, did you know that you can have quality time with your loved ones in a swim spa?
Swim spas are incredibly versatile and can make the perfect environment for your household to enjoy. There are also so many family activities that you can do, so Hydropool Surrey has put some of these together for you.
From waterproof games to exercises designed for kids, here is your guide to the best family activity ideas for a swim spa.
Swim spas can provide a wide array of entertainment opportunities, especially when it comes to games, as you can play several of these without leaving the comfort and warmth of the water.
From waterproof games such as cards and ping pong, to water hockey, the possibilities of keeping both adults and children entertained are endless.
Playing water games is also a great way to build the confidence of your little one’s who may feel nervous or have anxiety around the water, creating a distraction if the activity or skill feels challenging.
Adding an element of fun not only helps children learn, but helps them to form a positive association with their environment. Make sure to introduce play time into your swim spa!
Teach your children to swim
For some people, overcoming a fear of water can take a long time. Learning to swim can be a nerve-wracking experience for young children, but by teaching them in a swim spa, they enjoy a secure, safe and private environment. The swim spa is a self-contained pool that is inviting and intimate. This can make a huge difference in helping your child the confidence they need to become a confident swimmer as they grow up.
As a parent, you can have complete peace of mind as you can control everything. Of course, you want your children to enjoy the water and experience it without getting cold, or the water being dangerously hot. You are easily able to regulate and monitor the temperature yourself when teaching your baby or child to swim.
Strength and resistance training
There are so many different exercises you can do in a swim spa, and using one is the perfect way to get a great strength and resistance workout in the comfort of your own home. Not everyone enjoys using public fitness facilities, so you can invest in some resistance weights and you can use your swim spa to complete a full-body workout as a family.
Here at Hydropool Surrey, we have written blogs about this in the past, highlighting some of the best exercises you can do.
You can easily vary your workout routine so you stay motivated, whilst enjoying the benefits that water-resistant training has to offer. Just hop in the water any time of the day to accomplish your weight training goals with water power.
Host a mini swim spa party
You may have heard of hot tub parties, but why not do the same with your swim spa?
Throwing a swim spa party is the perfect way to keep your household entertained for hours. This is also a great way to socialise with your family in a unique and fun way.
All you need to do is prepare some of your household’s favourite food, put on some music and have some fun. You could even pick a theme, such as recreating a spa environment in your garden and provide manicures, pedicures, facials and massages.
When it comes to entertainment for your party, there are so many possibilities, from garden games such as garden Jenga, swing ball sets or even board games, you can have so much fun together and form stronger relationships as a family.
Of course, your swim spa will provide endless entertainment too, but just have a few different options available to keep things interesting.
