What Else Can You Sell at a Lemonade Stand

lemonade stand product ideasWhat else can you sell at a lemonade stand? There is nothing wrong with adding a little variety to your lemonade stand and a good way to do this is to offer additional items other than a cup of lemonade.

In the following brief article, I want to share some good ideas as well as some tips to get more people to drive by your lemonade stand so that you can hopefully make more money.

So what else can you sell at a lemonade stand? Rather than just having regular old lemonade, offer a variety of lemonades.

For example, you could sell cherry lemonade, strawberry lemonade, lime lemonade or pink lemonade.

Although most people like regular lemonade, many people prefer other flavors of it too.

Homemade cookies can be sold at your lemonade stand as well. One thing to consider if you choose to sell cookies is the temperature outside. If it is really hot outside and you are selling chocolate chip cookies, the chocolate will melt.

To prevent this, you could keep the cookies in a storage container, inside of a cooler, filled with ice. It would also be a good idea to put each of your cookies into their own plastic bag.

What else can you sell at a lemonade stand? Hobby arts and crafts such as bracelets, earrings or necklaces that you have made may interest your lemonade customers as well. Self portraits can also be a good way to make some extra money if any of the children operating the lemonade stand knows how to draw.

The pictures do not have to be masterpieces but whoever draws the pictures should be able to do more than draw a circle.

Many stores in the area sell wholesale products like suckers, gumballs and various other candies that you can sell for a few cents. Just remember to pick items that will survive the heat of summer if you do not have a cooler.

Determine how much you are going to charge for each item at your lemonade stand. Many people today do not carry cash because they use their debit card instead.

However, nearly everyone has a cup holder or armrest within their car or truck that is filled with spare change. When you decide what your prices will be, keep this in mind.

Now that you have some different ideas for items to sell at your lemonade stand, you need to figure out how to get a lot of cars to drive by the stand.

An excellent way to do this is to make 4 signs, just as people do for their garage sale and place them 1 block away from the lemonade stand in all 4 directions. This way people will know that your lemonade stand is open for business.

Lastly, many people see a lemonade stand, notice that there is not a lid on the lemonade and they do not stop at your lemonade stand. This is because some people are afraid of germs and bugs.

If you have a lemonade jug that has a lid, bring the lid with you to your lemonade stand and keep the lid on the lemonade until you are ready to pour a glass for your customer.
