We went swimming at YMCA and forgot to bring the floats! Luckily there were some pool noodles lying around, so we tried the urban legend: Pool Noodle Life Hack!

Simply tie the pool noodle around your kid and make sure the knot is in front to give your child extra buoyancy. That's it! But do help to check that the knot is securely in place once in a while. You can never be too careful.

They worked wonders! And even better than those specially designed, patented pool floats - arm floaties - life vests etc.
Any cons? Ya! Le kids thought that they are swimming experts and wanna teach us how to swim!!
