Simple Outdoor Adventures for Boys {Day 8}:Make a Lemonade Stand

Day 8 Make a Lemonade Stand Simple Outdoor Adventures for Boys

 

How to Make a Lemonade Stand…

   Supplies:

  • Lemonade/Water/Apple Cider/Baked Goods/Popsicles
  • Cups
  • Pitcher
  • Change
  • Table
  • Signs and/or Sidewalk Chalk

What I love about setting up a lemonade stand is it doesn’t have to be lemonade!!!  You can do what’s in season (hot chocolate, apple cider, popsicles, or even bottled water).  It can be as simple as you want to make it.  On this particular day, we sold $19 worth of popsicles and bottled water on our quiet road.  It was a unplanned activity that turned into a day-long fun-filled event for the family!

The boys LOVED making their own spending money, and it was a great economics lesson as well on saving, giving, cost, value, and profit.  It is also a perfect opportunity to raise money for a cause that your family is passionate about! I think we may try apple cider and pumpkin muffins for the fall!

      I remember doing one with neighbor friends when I was young and sending it to a local children’s hospital. We thought we would be the reason they found a cure for AIDS with our $10.

    From the photos, it looks like they had a marvelous time! We used to have a lemonade stand whenever my mom had a yard sale (maybe every 2-4 years).

    My daughter always hosts a lemonade/lavender cookie stand during our annual suburban farm tour–and she has so much fun! She also sells eggs from her pet chickens, and the visitors love hearing about her “girls.” Visitors never realize that we have chickens in a subdivision, until they come around to the back yard and the big gardens. Lemonade stands are so much fun!

    I just found your site through the 31 Days Challenge, and your boys are darling! Our children are always outside and playing in nature, and I look forward to checking in again to see your other ideas! Hope you have a lovely week!
