Activities for Kids – Lemonade Stand
The triplets had a lemonade and Kool-aid stand a couple of years ago. They were so excited. They made a list of what they would need (with some assistance). They made their products. Dad helped them to understand what the supplies they used cost. E made the sign (and we of course didn’t have the heart to tell her something was spelled wrong.) They got it all outside (with lots of assistance) and sat for a long time…. drinking most of the profits.
But they did make a little money and had fun and learned some lessons. They had the cash register outside and when there were no “customers” we worked on how to make change.
This is a low cost activity the kids can do. They don’t forget it either. The kids have often referred back to their lemonade stand. My guess is that one of them will have it on the list of things they want to do this weekend. Labor Day weekend is the time to do a lemonade stand in our town. There are a couple of huge weekends that you have garage sales. The biggest is Labor Day weekend. The reason is because there is an event every year in our town called Swappers. Swappers day is basically a massive flea market.
You wouldn’t believe the garage sales in this town. There had to have been hundreds. Last year was unbelievable. The weather was perfect and everyone was out. It is just such a fun weekend. All that to say that if they want to have a lemonade stand that is successful they should have it then. But I don’t think they would mind at all. The experience for them is the setting it up, the anticipation and of course.. drinking the lemonade.
