You can read my initial post on this idea over HERE and our shopping trip for the supplies on Google+.
We picked a really hot day to have the lemonade stand and I worried
that the boys would give up but they really surprised me!
This guy thought he was in charge of the stand, since he had the Lemonade apron! He is such a silly kid!
We made a delicious lemonade. I will share the recipe with you soon, it is so cool and refreshing during the summer!
Here is there stand. They sold their lemonade, Fruity Pebble cereal Bars, Suckers and Marshmallow poles.
If you haven’t made Fruity Pebble Treats they are so easy and delicious!
We put them in little bags with tags that charged $0.50 a bar.
My kiddos were amazing! They sat out in the 95 degree heat for three hours and sold lemonade to the neighbors and people that went by. My little guy had a speech about how they were using the money that they earned to buy food to donate to a local food pantry because they wanted to help child hunger in our area.
Facts from Champions for Kids Website:
My boys were able to buy 10 boxes of Post Cereal with their earnings! Maybe that doesn’t sound like alot but if you think about the fact that those ten boxes of cereal will provide an average of 14 servings, that will go a long ways in helping kids!
The morning after the lemonade stand we headed to Walmart and the boys picked out the boxes of cereal they wanted to donate.
Who knew you could have so much fun with boxes of cereal?!
They were so proud of themselves and I cannot tell you what a proud Mommy I am. They worked so hard and didn’t complain at all or want to keep the money they earned for themselves! We donated the boxes of cereal to a local food pantry in the town next to us. It is such a great feeling to be able to help people who really need it!
