Lemonadeday.org This countrywide initiative helps kids learn how to to run a successful business. We happened upon this as we were leaving the Indiana Children’s Museum. We signed the kids up and received a string backpack and many materials to help us on our venture.
There was a workbook for the kids that went step by step on how to build a successful business such as finding an investor and picking a site. The kids had a lot of fun and learned a great deal.
Cathy and I also learned what to do and not do next year. The first day as you can see from the picture above was a cold and windy day in May so we decide to sell apple cider, and hot coco too which turned out to be a great seller.
Then we decided to try again the next Saturday since we didn’t get the chance to sell much lemonade and were trying to also raise money for the Barbara B. Jordan YMCA Haiti Hands missionary project.
This time the day was beautiful and the kids did great and had even more fun. Eventually it did rain but they still had a blast. We put the stand away and they played in the rain until everyone’s soccer games were over.
