Here’s a summertime classic that’s sure to bring a smile to your neighbors’ faces.

Outside of finding a safe location you can monitor easily, setting up shop is simple.

Chances are there are a few cardboard boxes you can press into service.

You can make a sign with a sheet of butcher paper and some markers.

Add a cash box with a dollar or so in change, and stand back.

You may want to pass along this classic recipe for lemonade (and referee the manufacturing process):

Eight cups water
12 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar

1. Mix.
2. Chill.
3. Serve over ice.
4. Taste test.
S. Smile.


Lemonade Stand is a creative activity that is simple and easy but can be very useful for stimulating that entrepreneurial strak in your children while teaching them about how to handle money.
