The Juice on Lemonade Stands

Thumbing through the most recent issue of New York Magazine, I got nostalgic about the lemonade stands I set up each Summer at my parents’ garage sales. The kids interviewed in the article talked about how the increase in the price of lemons and sugar has forced them to raise prices this Summer – some from 25 cents to $1 per cup.

If your lil ones are looking for a way to distinguish their lemonade stand from others in the area, why not encourage them to make it green? To see my tips for doing so and to see how they could help your child win a $1,000 savings bond and a Nintendo DS,

.

While your neighbors may be simply throwing together some overly sweetened lemonade mix and some water, work with your wee one to offer passersby a green experience. To do so:

  • Use recycled cardboard and low-VOC paint to create the stand.
  • Use organic lemons and organic sugar to create your lemonade. YumSugar has a great recipe.
  • Serve your beverages in cups made from corn that let visitors know they are 100 percent compostable.
  • Encourage your child to speak to visitors about why their stand is making a difference.

And if your child’s stand starts to take off, don’t forget to enter them into Inc. Magazine’s Best Lemonade Stand in America Contest where they can win the aforementioned $1,000 savings bond and a Nintendo DS.

my son was just asking to set up a lemonade stand yesterday, told him i would think about it. and he had to make a list of what he would think he needs. but a $1....maybe .50cents, i think he'd just get a kick outta having people buying from him. i'd be willing to shell out a few extra bucks to see his happiness.
