Have you ever passed kids on the side of the road selling lemonade? Did you ever wish that your children could do the same? Now it's time! Create a lemonade stand for your child! With a little motivation and ideas; you can create the lemonade stand that you've always dreamed of!

You will need:
  • Lemonade - either lemons, sugar, and water or frozen concentrate.
  • Ice
  • A Large Pitcher
  • Paper Cups
  • A small table and table cloth
  • Signs
  1. Prepare the lemonade the night before
  2. Make sure there are ice cubes available in the freezer
  3. Make a big colorful sign to advertise your business
  4. Consider offering two sizes-- a large cup and a small cup
  5. On the day of the sale, choose a good location where a lot of people will notice it.
  6. Take along a cooler for ice and a money box with change in it
In our "365 Afterschool Activities" book; it lists activities that you can do with your child, each day of the year! The ideas are great and sure to inspire a fun time with your child.
