Project: Lemonade Stand



Welcome to my collection of lemonade stand projects. Our family has really enjoyed using our lemonade stand to help others. I hope you can find some good ideas! You can read the full story of this project here. We rolled out the lemonade stand on the first day of fall to raise money for Heifer International. I used a combination of pumpkins, lemons, and apples to style the stand.

Nothing welcomes fall better than pumpkin baked goods. I baked these pumpkin muffins to compliment our lemonade selection. We also served oatmeal cookies, to which I added a little lemon zest and cranberries, keeping with our cohesive autumnal lemonade theme.

Pumpkin Muffin Recipe
18 oz. box of spice cake mix
15 oz. can of pumpkin
1 c. water
1 c. of cranberries or raisin (or both)

Mix together and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
I was pressed for time and used a package of oatmeal cookie mix. I added the zest of one lemon and a cup of cranberries to dress them up a bit.
 


We served two types of lemonade, a traditional lemonade made with Country Time and freshly cut lemons and a seasonal treat of Apple Lemonade.

I planned to follow this recipe. However, I was missing some ingredients. So, I improvised with this:

Apple-Cinnamon Lemonade
1 gallon of Country Time lemonade (prepared)
6 Juicy Juice apple juice boxes (that my daughter wouldn't drink)
1 tsp. of cinnamon
1 thinly sliced apple

I mixed the liquids, added the cinnamon and sliced apples. We iced the beverage because it was a warm day, but it would have been yummy as a warm drink too!
