How to: Take your children out on a Canoe 

I have often wondered what it would be like to take small children out on a pond. My mother purchased this awesome inflatable boat and out we went!

What you will need:

Life vests


Keep your electronics at shore or in Ziplock bags


We headed out and enjoyed some much needed time on the boat. I must say taking the little ones at one at a time worked perfectly. Little ones like to move around and I wanted to make sure they didn’t off set the balance of the boat and make it tip.

I did go out first and scout the pond first.

Who wants one of these boats to float around in??

 Just another great thing to do with kids and enjoy the great outdoors.

Happy trails!

    We went boating last weekend and I so wanted to rent a kayak to take my daughter out just the two of us! P.S. I love having my Seidio case for my cell phone so I don't have to worry about it getting wet!

    This is very timely for me, we have a canoe that we haven't used since we've had kids. It's about time we dusted off the cobwebs!

    Although our son has progressed quite well in swimming, and safety vests are available, I am still a bit hesitant about taking him out with the canoe. Maybe next summer…

    I would be so nervous! I remember going in the canoe as a child and it being terrifying. Haha! I bet my son would LOVE it, though!
