This past week, my son turned 6 years old. I asked him what he wanted to do this weekend. Without any hesitation, he said, “I want to sell lemonade. I need a lemonade stand.” (AWESOME!) I asked him what he wanted to do with all the money he was going to make selling the lemonade. “I’m going to buy a farm.” (SO AWESOME!) We started planning right away and opened shop on Saturday! I love his little entrepreneurial spirit!
We put up a sign and decorated the table with little pom poms made of tissue paper. I made a bunting banner on dowel sticks to string above the table but I didn’t properly weight it down so they kept falling. Sad we had to take it down. The stand would’ve been extra cute with a banner on top! We’ll try again next week! ;)
The main ingredient in our lemonade? Fresh lemons! Grandma has a lot of lemons growing in her garden. Time to put these little guys to work! We do not have a citrus squeezer so we hand-squeezed each lemon ourselves! It was worth all the hard work! He got so many compliments from his customers! Many of them were surprised that we even used fresh lemons. A couple of the customers even came back to buy more after tasting the first cup! Business is good! Logan can’t wait to sell lemonade again next weekend!
