Re: Ways to Engage Two Young Children ?

I just rig up a rope chair. After a while they realize they can stand in the loop and launch into the water...

Re: Ways to Engage Two Young Children ?

Our children enjoyed riding in the bosn's chair clipped to the clew of our genoa when the conditions were safe; role playing & presenting short plays; making and serving snack trays in the galley; taking turns at the helm; constructing small model vessels and towing them behind our own boat.......and many of those other ideas mentioned above.

The best thing we learned about raiseing kids aboard is you are much more involved in their lives then raiseing them ashore ! ours lived aboard till time for college !! and I think we are still more involved with them now then most folks are with there grown and gone kids!
This is the kind of gold that keeps me on CF, and draws me to the sea....thanks B & C!
