Lemonade Stand - lemonade stand

We are having a garage sale in a couple of weeks and my son (age 5) wants to have a lemonade stand so he can get some money for Nickalodean Hotel--which is over $300 PER NIGHT! LOL Anyhow, I was thinking to let him charge $.25 per cup or lemonade. Does this sound like a good price or is it too high or too low?

My girls have them every summer and they sell a cup of lemomade and a cookie for a dollar or just one of either for 50 cents. They do pretty good with it too, shoot makes me think about selling the stuff full time, LOL.

hmmm...good idea with the cookies. My kids LOVE to bake! I could help them bake up a few batchs the night before. Thanks for the idea.

That would be cool, then have them put each in it's own ziplock or cheaper in plastic wrap. Gives them an idea about packaging. :oD

Why not charge 25 cents for kids and 50 for adults. Most machines charge a $1.00 for a can of soda so I dont theink that would be too much.

I think that is a great idea. Recently actually when I went to go to my mothers I saw a little girl out with a lemonade stand, she was selling it for $0.25 as well. So when I stopped at my mothers I asked her if she had two quarters (I had my niece with me at the time). I told her why and on the way out we stopped and got two cups. I thought it was really great that she was out there doing that. Yes her father wasn't far off working on his car so she wasn't alone out there but overall it was nice to see a child trying to earn their money instead of just standing out there begging for it. We have a lot of groups that will do that at the stores and I find it irritating. Sorry going off onto a different subject and don't mean to. I think charging a quarter to 50 cents would be fair. I think he'd get people to buy from him.

That's reasonable. It might help if he has a sign on his 'stand' that tells why he is raising money. People are a sucker for kids wanting to do something to make their dream happen.

why don't you supplement the lemonade with popcorn? not the microwave stuff but learn to cook it over the stove in a kittle...and add seasonings...my neighbor has two ovens and bakes her own bread and stuff and she makes a lot of $$$ but she also home schools her kids and the older ones all got scholarships in college...like another person said..put up a reason for the selling of the garage sale...most people will give something...i am a sucker too for any good cause..but a .25 will get them in the door..in sales this is called a loss leader..people pay $$ for bottled water..i never thought people would do this but if you figured the price you pay at places then the water cost more then gas..lol..good luck
