Be Cool by the Pool
Kids love playing by the pool. They enjoy having birthday parties, entertaining friends or just hanging out after school. The same goes for parents. Enjoying a braai and cooling off after a long day. Send kids home after a pool party only with good memories and a damp swimsuit. Provide sunscreen and insect repellent to avoid sunburn and bug bites.

Pool cocktails :
Remember when kids play outside they need plenty of fluids to keep from getting dehydrated. There might be alot of water around them in the pool but keep fresh, cool water with a ice block or two close by when the playing stops for a minute. Also get a few small fishbowls from our shop in ClubView by the Koi section or your nearest petshop and fill it with fresh fruit juice, crushed ice and a colourful straw. ï¿½Kiddies fishbowl"
