How to make your ice world

2. Once frozen, tip the ice cubes and ice blocks into the roasting tray, low sided dish or plastic container.

3. Add your choice of Artic and/or Antarctic creatures or fish and other sea creatures onto the ice.

4. Add some water to create the sea. You can add a few drops of blue food colouring too for more effect.

The swim safe benefits for your baby

The swim safe benefits for your baby

We are a culture that thrives on being able to spend time at play on our beaches and waterways, but we still need help when it comes to staying safe. Entering the water safely at an early age is a great way to begin, and the benefits of "baby-friendly" swimming classes are unique, uplifting and contribute to the positive development of the whole child.
