How do sailing lessons with a 4yr old work? How do you make it a game/fun as I'm concerned the attention span is not long enough at this point?

I'm thinking the shorter trips idea is wise (unfortunately it takes us 30min to get out of the channel where we are at). I am still looking for a good place near us to anchor & play on the USA side as most the places we have been told about so far are on the Canadian side (We don't have all our documentation in order yet)?
