Lemonade Stand

Lemonade week has been fun. Tomorrow I still have a tutorial on how I painted the lemonade stand but today is the day I am going to show the whole set up. For anyone who missed the first couple days. Day 1 was lemonade chalk board signs. Day 2 was the photo booth/ lemonade bench. Day 3... well that is just how ugly I looked when setting up this party :) Maybe this will inspire you to have your own lemonade stand – you could donate the proceeds for a tax deduction when you use TurboTax online this year!

Today is the day where we get to see the whole lemonade stand! I loved how it turned out, but most importantly the kids and I were having a blast. The kids, because they could eat  candy and drink all the lemonade, and me, well we all know I get overly excited over a paper straw and pendant flags. Sad I know :)

I think there is so much more to kids selling lemonade than earning money and keeping the kids entertained. Having your kids sell lemonade is a great opportunity to teach them how to manage money, subtracting the overhead cost, and how to save. You know your kids would be bored out of their mind if you just sat them down and tried to teach them about these things. So, you can disguise the fact you are teaching them about money management when you incorporate it in with a lemonade stand.

 Plus your kids are going to LOVE you when people are lined up at their drink station. You know if you saw this set up you would stop!
