Nothing is Sweeter than a Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand

For today’s idea for a kids summer fun activity, we are going old school with the timeless Lemonade Stand. Nothing says summer like cool, refreshing lemonade. Help the kids set up a stand, make a sign and get their first batch of lemonade ready. Other than coming in for more supplies every now and then, I know this keeps my kids completely occupied for hours. They set up their shade umbrellas, get the boom box playing Kids Bop, and they’re happy as can be with some old-fashioned fun. They get so excited when one of the neighbors gives them some quarters.

What you need:

  • Pitcher
  • Lemonade mix
  • Disposable cups
  • Folding table
  • Poster board for sign
  • Markers
