What better way to celebrate independence than by encouraging young entrepreneurs? A lemonade stand is a time-tested exercise in business and self-reliance. Let kids take control of the process as they develop signs, select supplies, choose the location, prices, grocery list and budget. Watch profits (and excitement) double when kids make Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies to sell alongside Betty’s top-rated Old Fashioned Lemonade.
Promote household responsibility and support your own school by encouraging kids to take control of the family’s Box Tops for Education. Collecting Box Tops is so much easier when you have a dedicated bank that kids have a hand in creating. Use a rainy day to turn Box Tops collection into a craft with the help of this easy how-to, and allow kids to rotate shifts as president of the family bank.
