So OF COURSE my kids wanted to join in the next day. We looked at the supplies we had and decided on a lemonade stand. They squeezed so many lemons their hands hurt.
We didn't have paper or pens for a sign so we searched all the cabinets in our rental house for inspiration. Pipe cleaners to the rescue! My kids had fun shaping the letters and I taped them to the bench.
Just like most businesses, where to set the price point was a major debate. It ranged from free (Oscar) to $1 (Ella) to $2,000 (Owen). In the end, the CEO got her way. They were sold out in 20 minutes and made a whopping $23 dollars. Enough to buy 2 kites, 2 sharks teeth and a bouncing ball from the general store.
|Flowers arrangement by Ella. Somehow she knew the importance of creating not only a great product, but a great experience, too.|
|They always asked, "One ice cube or two?" Such costumer service!|
|Owen's biggest job was to shout, "Homemade Lemonade One Dollar!" I wish I would have recorded it.|
two seconds after I took the opening shot on this post. he reallllly had to go to the bathroom.
