How to Create the Ultimate Lemonade Stand

Remember when lemonade stands were simply made of a part of a cardboard box or poster board or a spare piece of wood that mom and dad could spare? I remember that. My first lemonade stand was made of poster board and decorated with those glitter glue pens you can get from the Dollar Store. It wasn’t much, but it worked.

Today, lemonade stands can be as simple as the ones of yester-years, or they can get a 21st century facelift that will be sure to attract customers and turn the very fun activity of the summer lemonade stand into something a bit more…sophisticated.

If your kid has grand plans to take over the world with one cup of lemonade at a time, consider these great products.
