So dad was thinking about paravanes and outdoor activities for kids and came up with "Kid Paravane". The idea is to have the kids use their body like a paravane or water kite. We attach a rope to their life jacket and then pull. Their goal is to angle their body so that they are pulling away from the beach enough that as I pull forward and toward the beach they stay out in the water. My 6, 9, and 11 year olds were all able to do this. My 4 year old declined dad's experiment. Video below. Note that Dad was pulling the rope and holding the camera while going backward down the beach and Youtube can only do so much to remove shake.
