How to make a quick $8.66





Just in case you can't tell- this is a very classy Lemonade stand made out of a big trampoline box. The kids were out there about 1 1/2 hours and made $8.66. Not too bad... They even had a contest- if you can shoot the basketball from the manhole lid in the middle of the street and make it into the goal, you win a free cup of Raspberry-Lemonade. It was fun to watch how "into" it they were. They even took their big bucks to buy drinks and popcorn at the movies last nite.
**PS. Check out who commented on my Show Me a Sign Post. Rachel Coleman- the founder of Signing Time. I am so honored. :)

I need to send my girls to your house. They never come close to making even $4!

Way to go you young entrepreneurs!

I don't think I would have even recognized K & K if I was walking down the street. They are so grown-up now. I think the last time I saw them they were 4 or 5. :-( Jayden will be jealous - he wanted to do a lemonade stand when we were in Phoenix so he could earn money for a Star Wars game. I'll have to encourage him to try it here.

The kids are too cute! I would have definitely stopped to shoot some basketball and buy some lemonade. I always stop for lemonade stands; how can you resist? We used to live on a busy road and Austin would set up a lemonade stand on weekends. He made big bucks too because most people would give him a dollar for a 10 cent cup of lemonade.

That's so awesome that Rachel Coleman stopped by and commented! Yayy for you!
