Freeicon Rubbermaid - Free Lemonade Stand Sign (Printable)

The Victory™ Jug is better than a pitcher for keeping beverages
cold, and easy for kids to use.
With the Endurance Cooler, kids (with adult in tow) can take
the show—um, stand—on the road.

It doesn’t take much to set up a lemonade stand—just some
refreshing drinks and someplace to serve them. A large, wheeled
cooler makes a perfect self-contained, go-anywhere stand. Kids
can dole out drinks on top—be sure to have plenty of paper cups,
napkins and colorful straws—and stash extra supplies inside. Keep
fresh lemon wedges (a grownup should do the slicing, of course)
on hand in a small plastic container. It’s just one of the nice touches
that keep customers coming back for more. For an even more
successful operation, young entrepreneurs might take a cue or two
from the big business world.

Click here to download this sign for your children’s lemonade stand.
Then have them write in the price they want to charge.

Try these six simple secrets for success:
• Find a prime spot in the shade with lots of thirsty passersby. If
your front yard isn’t ideal, seek out a larger crowd near a T-ball
game or neighborhood garage sale, for example.

• If location is the first rule, a good sign is a close second. It should
be big and bright. Kids can craft a homemade sign with paint and
paper or download a pre-made one, at right.

• Create curb appeal to draw customers. Tying colorful balloons to
the stand, playing music (though not too loud) and blowing bubbles
are great ways to get people’s attention.

• Price it right. Anywhere from 25 cents to $1 is common, but fierce competition may warrant a price cut.

• Pick a cause. Encourage kids to choose a charity that appeals to
them and donate a portion or all of their earnings—the reward will be
just as great. Make sure to tell customers where their money is going.

• Kids can increase their profits by selling other refreshments, too. Cookies, popcorn or marshmallow-cereal bars go great with lemonade
and are sure to entice buyers.
