This past weekend, I went for a walk in my neighbourhood and I came across a homemade lemonade stand. Neat! I bought a cup and the mom told me the kids were selling lemonade so they could buy a pet turtle. What a great idea!
Have you ever thought about putting on a lemonade stand to earn money for something you wanted or to raise money for charity? Summer isn’t over just yet — maybe you can put one on this weekend!
STOP: Ask your parents for permission before making a lemonade stand.
Here are some helpful tips for your lemonade stand:
- Make a big, colourful sign so people know what you are selling.
- If possible, make real lemonade. Find a recipe online.
- The night before, make lemonade ice cubes so that the pitcher of lemonade doesn’t get watered down.
- Ask your customer if they want a reusuable cup. After they are done, you can wash the cups in your kitchen.
