Summer is in full swing, and there’s no better time than now to set up a super sweet lemonade stand with this Artful Home printable! If you are anything like me you are always on the hunt for fun screen-free ways to keep your kiddos entertained. This lemonade stand printable from The Artful Home is the perfect unique activity to celebrate summer. It can be used for pretend play or even a lemonade stand party!
Let your creativity soar as you transform your backyard or any designated area into a vibrant lemonade stand. Utilize Artful Home’s lemonade stand DIY printables to craft signs, banners, and labels. Consider an aesthetic theme like a vibrant lemon yellow or a refreshing citrus pattern to make your stand stand out! Let your kiddos imaginations run wild!
Encourage your kiddos to help with the planning, setup, and decorating process. This allows them to express their creativity and take ownership of this party.
Make the pretend play even more special by providing your kiddos with aprons, hats, and badges. Dressing up will make them feel like they’re truly running their own business and add an extra layer of excitement and encourages imaginative role-playing.
Encourage children to put on short skits or plays centered around the lemonade theme. They can act as customers, employees, or even create their own stories.
Set up a craft station where children can design their own paper cup labels, decorate aprons or hats, or even make lemon-themed artwork. This allows them to explore their creativity while adding a personalized touch to their pretend play.
Prepare fun games like “Lemonade Limbo” or “Pin the Lemon on the Lemonade Stand.” These games add an element of friendly competition and provide opportunities for active engagement and laughter.
Of course, a lemonade stand play party wouldn’t be complete without delicious lemonade! Combine freshly squeezed lemons, a hint of agave nectar, and chilled water to create a deliciously refreshing lemonade. Pour over ice!
1. In a pitcher, mix the juice of 6 lemons
2. 1/4 cup of agave nectar and 4 cups of cold water
3. Adjust the sweetness to your liking, and serve over ice in cute summery cups!
Experiment with a variety of lemonade flavors. You can try classic, strawberry, peach, or even a refreshing twist with fruit slices. Don’t forget to add these colorful bendy straws! My kiddos really loved taking turns serving their friends.
We found this pretend play to be a wonderful way to celebrate summer, encourage imaginative play, and create lasting memories for not only the kiddos, but our entire family. It fosters creativity, teamwork, and entrepreneurial spirit while providing a little refresh from the summer heat. So, gather your little entrepreneurs and get ready to enjoy a day filled with laughter, creativity, and of course, lots of delicious lemonade! Cheers to a summer to remember!
