The (improvised) Lemonade Stand

Remember this amazing lemonade stand by Daisy Mae Belle?

Lemonade Stand by Daisy Mae Belle


Ever since I saw it for the first time, I knew I had to make one too. Just a couple of days after I first saw it, The Boy decided he wanted to sell lemondae outside. Naturally, I immediately tried to convince everybody to go and look for wood palletes and build together a fancy lemonade stand, but to no avail. No one wanted to build anything. Everyone wanted to go and sell lemonade. And when kids want something, they want it right here, right now.

So Daddy offered to help and began squeezing the lemons.

The kids helped with water, ice and sugar-water.

And also made a sign, that I hammered onto 2 pieces of wood we found outside.

And so they all went out on a hot Saturday afternoon, with the lemonade, and stood at the bus station just accross the street. Luckily they sold a few cups and even got some tips, that really made their day... Later on, some other friends also joined the two and together they tried to stop each and every car that passed by.

At some point I was asked to bring them some popcorn and water (can you believe it? Two of them don't even like lemonade!) and when they ran out of lemonade they all went to the ice-cream parlor and spent all the money :)

  1. I LOL about spending the money at the ice-cream parlor. :) I'm trying to figure out what the sign says. Can you please tell me?

    1. It's in Hebrew... It says Lemonade, then the different prices for different sizes of cups (although we only had one size LOL)...

  2. Aww! I love this Tal! They are adorable! And I am sure that my kids will be the same way when they get older.

    Did they enjoy the ice cream? I am craving some cookie dough ice cream right about now :)

    1. Thanks Shay! They loved the ice cream, of course. I'm not sure what was more fun for them - selling the lemonade or having the ice cream...
