DD got her 10m badge doing doggy paddle last year but is finding doing front crawl arms really tricky.

I guess it will just click in her own time but was wondering if anyone had any tips? She is 5.4.

I teach children to "fish"- you spear the fish (pointy hand, fingers together, just in front of your head) and put it in you pocket (pull hand back towards hip "pocket" area).

Seems to help, even if I sound stupid repeating it ad infinitum!

Or planes coming into land - pointy hand just in front of the head, keeps the elbow high and stops the hand slapping the water.
