It's 95 degrees here today (don't tell Magpie--she thinks it's snow-boot weather), so we decided to have a lemonade stand.
I've always wanted to build the girls a lemonade stand like this, but we didn't have time or energy for carpentry today. Instead, we set out a folding table with a sheet on top and made a sign we hung from the bush. Nothing fancy, but it was charming enough to attract four whole customers (I tried to explain the word "recession" to Bo. She didn't get it).
My construction of the letters was a bit different than Katie's, though.
To make the letters, I folded pieces of construction paper lengthwise (like a hotdog, not a hamburger) and then cut the shapes of the letters with the folded side of the paper at the top.
Then we sandwiched the letters around a piece of twine and glued the two sides together on the inside, like this:
So, I don't know, if you want more than four customers, make something more elaborate. But if you're pretty happy to have a bunch of leftover lemonade in the fridge, the sheet-on-a-table-and-sign-in-a-bush method works fine.
The girls' third customer today was the ice cream lady. Does that just scream "summer" or what?
