First things first, kit the non-swimmers and children out with buoyancy aids on your arrival. Perfect, now you can relax and begin to enjoy your canal holiday experience.
Whilst we provide a selection of board games on our boats for your use I am sure, like most people, you will have a number of family holiday favourites in the attic. Why not encourage your family holiday experience by bringing them along with you.
When our children were growing up and we took them out on the boat we never switched the TV on. By the time they had been out in the fresh air, helped with the locks, steered the boat (under supervision), walked the towpath and played games as a family the TV and Gameboy (or whatever the favourite electrical gadget was at the time) was long forgotten.
