Last week, Aidan tells us that he wants to buy a snorkel and some flippers. We tell him that he better get busy on doing some chores. Then he has the best idea of his life. He asks if he can open a lemonade stand. We spent some time talking with him about how he would need to buy his supplies, learn how to make some drinks, and find a place to sell them. So, our little business man comes up with the idea of using the money he had saved so far to buy supplies, using some old fence material to build a lemonade stand, and having mom and dad post some pics of his stand in our neighborhood Facebook group. For a six year old, that's a pretty solid business plan!
Step 1: Recycle some old wood from our fence to create a storefront. Yes, dad did a lot of the work- especially with the saw. But, there wasn't a piece of the build that Aidan didn't help with in some way. He helped hold the wood steady for the saw, he ran the drill, and painted the letters that mom traced.
