The Great American Lemonade Stand. It is officially Lemonade Season at my house. This is what we call summer. Every year Peyton BEGS to have a lemonade stand. He loves the idea that he can make money by hosting one and every year I say, no - let's just give it to our friends but this this we decided to host one and compromised and decided to give the money earned to charity.
The Great American Lemonade Stand:
This summer, Country Time Lemonade is giving families everywhere a fun and philanthropic way to participate in one of America’s great summer traditions – hosting a lemonade stand.
The Great American Lemonade "Stand-tacular” offers fans of the Country Time Facebook page a “Stand Plan” that provides tips and tools to host the perfect stand. Fans who post a photo of their stand to the Country Time Facbeook page can trigger a $5 donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. County Time will donate $5 (up to $50,000) to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to help fight childhood cancer for every family lemonade stand photo uploaded to the Great American Stand-tacular’s Facebook page this summer.
As the Official Lemonade of Lemonade Stands, Country Time is available in four refreshing, down-home flavors including classic Lemonade, Pink Lemonade, Strawberry Lemonade and Half & Half (half iced tea, half lemonade). Now my personal favorite is the Half & Half. It is Pink Lemonade for Peyton and classic for Tim. I was really excited to try the Strawberry Lemonade and I have to say it is delicious!
Of course, you can never go wrong with the classic Lemonade. A little trick my mom taught me is to add sliced lemons to your Country Time. Every time I do everyone thinks I squeezed it myself 🙂 I think some frozen strawberries would be perfect for the Strawberry Lemonade. A great tip is to use these Lemon Ice Cubes in your lemonade to keep it cold!
It is simple to create a Lemonade Stand. With just a pitcher of water, some ice cubes and spoon, Peyton and I can stir up an afternoon of fun for the entire neighborhood. I always invite the neighbors over or bring out a pitcher for Lemonade for them when they are out playing on a hot summer day.
The Country Time Lemonade “Great American Lemonade Stand-tacular” online offers a free downloadable “Stand Plan” – a creative and user-friendly guide that gives parents all the information they need to help their kids build the best stand, while teaching them a little bit about business basics.
The Great American Stand-tacular program helps kids learn valuable lessons of entrepreneurship and giving back to others in need, values I definitely want Peyton to inherit! It is a great experience for him and at the same time we can give back to those in need.
I hope you will join with us and participate in the The Great American Lemonade Stand-tacular. When you do be sure to load your picture to the Country Time Facebook page.
