Miniature foam kayakers, or "foamies", have been good clean fun for many people of all ages for quite a while now. I thought my three year old would have some fun one Saturday morning by making a foamie.
Well, it was fun, fun for us to make and even more fun for him to play with in the bathtub, the lake, the waves at the beach, the swimming pool, and the little stream that flows through our favorite campsite. The foamies go just about everywhere with us.
My wife and I enjoy whitewater kayaking and being at the river very much, I think foamies are a great way to introduce our kids to rivers and streams and the fun of boats and being outside.
Of course it could be that I am using my kids as an excuse to play with foamie kayakers myself.
v. in cycling, kayaking, snowboarding, and similar sports, to ride over a drop-off.
We call our foamies Lil' Huckers.
