How can I help my 5 and 6 yr olds start a lemonade stand?

We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood without alot of foot traffic and they are really excited but I don't want them to be disappointed. This is all their idea, so i just want to assist in it being a success.

  • You could maybe tell family members and friends about it to get business, or maybe even post on craigslist?

  • You could also create big signs and post them with arrows directing the way to your house.

  • Be careful. Some jerks may call and report them for not having a permit. (Yes, it's been done!)

  • anon 11:25 is quite right. There was little grl all over the news because her little lemonade stand was shut down by police for not having a permit.

    I'd check with my neighbors to make sure its okay by everyone there.

    Good luck!
