National Lemonade Day

Have you heard about National Lemonade Day?  No, it's true.

National Lemonade day will be May 16th and the whole purpose is to help kids learn how to start, own and operate their own business: a lemonade stand.

Today fewer and fewer kids are engaging in entrepreneurial activities; mowing grass or having a lemonade stand.  Several entrepreneurs will share about their early history of selling golf balls or having a lemonade stand as their first training.  The moment when they understood that they could control their destiny and possible change the world with their ideas.

Now, of course you can just encourage your child to make some lemonade on the 18th of May and put a table on the sidewalk and see what happens or if you prefer a "teaching moment" you can do the following steps:

 

  • Sign up for Lemonade Day - on line, at most libraries, registration events at the Children's Museum or the Indianapolis Zoo.
  • Get your Lemonade Day backpack with two workbooks, one for the child and one for the parent.
  • Participate in the workshops and contest (optional)
  • Send in your video to get your Seed Fund start up money.
  • Parents watch the email for tips and hints.
  • Set up your lemonade stand on Lemonade Day, May 16th, 2015
We want to help you be a success and will ask you to email us the location of your Lemonade Stand by May 8th and we will have will have an story featuring all of the great Lemonade Stands on May 15th.  Start planning.
