Pontoon Diving Boards and Boating with Kids

So, you want to bring your kids with you when you go boating and you want to make sure they have a lot of fun. That can be a pretty tall order if your kids aren’t overly enthused about boating.

Some of your most memorable days are the ones you went boating. Your kids might not get excited about boating right now, but there are many ways in which you can change that. Lillipad Marine, your source for pontoon diving boards, offers ways you can make boating fun for kids.

Have a Picnic

One way you can get kids to enjoy boating is by breaking up the day with various activities. After a morning of boating, find a nice spot on the beach and have a picnic. Kids can eat, take a nap or run around and play, it’s a great break for them.

Get a Wetsuit

Lake water is cold, even in the summer and kids get cold all too easily. Get your kids nice warm wetsuits and they will enjoy boating and being in the water much more.

Do Some Fishing

Kids love fishing and it is another great activity to help break up the day. The best time to fish on a lake is in the morning and in the late evening.

Invite Friends

Have your kids bring a friend or two the next time you go boating. It will be exciting for their friends and that excitement is sure to rub off on your kids.

Order Pizza

Your kids get excited whenever you order pizza, so it will be really cool when you order pizza from the dock.

Movie Time

Bring along your iPad or other electronic devices that allow you to watch movies. Make sure you have a great selection of kid-friendly movies you can all watch together. We suggest you avoid movies like “Jaws” and “Piranha.”

Bring Some Fun Snacks

Make sure you pack some fun snacks for the kids for the boat ride. This is an even better idea if you prepare snacks that they usually don’t get very often. You can dole out the snacks when the kids are bored or when they start to get restless.

Bring Games and Toys

Bring along toys or other items that your kids enjoy playing with, it’s a great way to keep them occupied and happy on the boat ride. This can be something as simple as Playdough or games that need to be set up on a table and played.

Tie Some Knots

Teach your kids how to tie curtain knots or get them involved with other hobbies associated with boats and boating. Hobbies on the water enhance the boating experience.

Let the Kids Have a Voice

It is a good idea to let the kids have a voice when you are out boating for the day. Allow them to help decide where to go, when to eat and what to do while you are all out boating, it makes them feel important.

Remote Control Boats

There is nothing better than playing with a remote control boat while you are boating. Your kids will love this to be sure. Remote control boats are an inexpensive way to have fun while boating.

Water Toys

Kids love inflatable water toys and what better way to enjoy them than when you are out boating. If you are feeling adventurous, tie a floatation device to the boat and pull it with the kids on board.
