How To Sell Lemonade

Lemonade Cart

To sell your homemade lemonade, you have to make a cart shown like the one on the right. Before you go out to sell, you need parental approval. Once you have approval, you can start building your stand. You can build one by hand, like the one to the right, or you can use a table. Now you are ready to go! You can sell the lemonade outside your house, or somewhere around there. I recomend not going to far away from your house. Carrying those materials really far can get tiring. Besides the lemonade and the stand, you need to bring out a money holder, and cups.
