Is 6 an appropriate age to have a lemonade stand?

I am having a yard sale in a few weeks and my 6 year old wants to do a lemonade stand. I am on the fence.

  • yeah, we were going to let my son do one with our yard sale but then we decided not to. We decided to let him be nice instead and offer free popcycle to the kids.

  • as long as you're there in close proximity it should be okay ... i think you should only charge like 25 cents a cup though so she don't have to count out change lol

  • If you're going to be right there anyway, then go for it. Encourage them and have them help make brownies and/or cookies as well.

  • Heck yeah as long as you are there. I think the child would make more money selling canned sodas iced down. Lemonade is nice but I'd buy a soda quicker than lemonade. You have ice in the freezer. You probably have a cooler or bucket. Sodas are really cheap at some stores. Double the investment price and easy profit.

  • Can she count money? That would be a necessity, unless you will be standing over her all day. If she can - go ahead! My 8 year old has them all the time.
