Hey everyone! I want to formally introduce myself, my name is Annie Canfield and I am a sophomore at the University of South Carolina! I am majoring in Hospitality Management and from St. Louis Missouri! I love helping out with KinderKeepsakes, I think Alyson and her company have done amazing things and we are so excited to continue and further our growth!
Summer is approaching soon and I know that you are going to want fun things to do with your kids! We just heard from Taylor last week about some fun, FREE things to do this summer....how about something free that also MAKES money?! I know my favorite thing I did when I was little was to grab our wagon & hike up to the corner of my street and have the ULTIMATE LEMONADE STAND! This will make your kids feel like they are king of the world, even though they may make about $15 it feels like a million bucks to a kid. Here are the 5 steps for your kids ultimate lemonade stand this summer!
1. Get the supplies
You will need a few things to make this lemonade stand happen! Of course you need your lemonade mix, disposable cups, pitcher, a table/wagon (something to put the lemonade on), a jar for money, poster board & markers, and any cute decorations you want to spice it up! Once you have all these things your stand will fall into place!
2. A popular spot
Sometimes making the effort to go somewhere fun and popular like a crowded park or a busy outdoor mall will make it all worth while! Somewhere filled with people will make it more fun because then more people will be more likely to buy lemonade!
3. Make a fun sign
This is where your markers and poster board come in handy! Take some time to do arts and crafts with your cutie! Make a fun sign for your stand to draw some attention! This will be fun for you both to spend time together and it'll make the stand more successful!
4. Set a price
Most people wont buy lemonade jf it's over $1, so make sure you have good lemonade to serve for whatever price you make it! The cheaper the more popular it will be! And always make sure you have enough lemonade for when you run out :)
5. Go set up!
Take all these steps and go out and set up your ULTIMATE LEMONADE STAND! And make sure its a nice sunny hot day :)
Make sure to send us photos and tell us all about your lemonade stand this summer! And tell us about any of your fun, favorite activities! We love hearing from you guys :) Until next time!
