For Kids Who Don't Want To Get Wet, Try Hallway Swimming

I took my five-year-old son for swimming lessons this morning and, to be honest, it was a bit of a struggle. He's not exactly a fish in water.

So perhaps this is the answer: hallway swimming. It's the latest craze for kids who want all the benefits of breast stroke and crawl – without the inconvenience of getting wet!

The agile chap demonstrating it in this YouTube video – which as been viewed more than 3 million times – effortlessly kicks and strokes from locker to locker on a shiny, slippery floor.

Time to pull the carpets up in the hallway!@block
