Teaching my boys to have compassion for other people is very important to me. So, this year we had our second annual lemonade stand for charity. The boys raised $83.85 for Cystic Fibrosis... a disease that their 9 month old cousin has been diagnosed with. They were very proud of the money they raised to help their little cousin. :-)
Would you like to have a lemonade stand with your little one? Here is a little checklist that might be helpful:
1) Lemonade and cookies - You don't need cookies, but it adds something extra to the stand... and getting the kids to help bake the cookies is a good way to get them involved.
2) Small glasses
3) A cooler and ice
4) A table and colorful tablecloth - I used two TV trays because they were easy to transport.
5) Signs - Let people know what you are doing and what charity you are raising money for. You can download our simple sign here.
6) A container for donations
7) A bag for garbage
I hope you have as much fun with your lemonade stand as we had with ours.
