We’ve talked about our love for Cheeky Home products before. But, not only are the products amazing, their mission is even better. For each item purchased they donate a meal. Then, they outdid themselves and created these awesome Cheeky Lemonade Stand Kits to help you raise money at home for your local food bank. We were super excited to participate because- lemonade, cuteness, and doing good for others. It’s a win-win-win.
As is my nature, a simple lemonade stand would never do. You know I think bigger is better, so we amped up our lemonade stand. Well, PINK lemonade stand.
All of the money we raised went to Second Harvest Middle Tennessee. The biggest reward is being able to teach your kids about doing good for others. We also sparked a little entrepreneurial spirit which is fun to see. At one point my son was yelling out “WHO WANTS LEMONADE?!”. As a normally shy kid, I love opportunities to see him break out of his shell.
We made our stand using 3 wooden milk crates we picked up at Michaels. I spray painted them, but you could also paint them with regular paint, or even leave them without paint. Then, I just used some zip ties to hold them all together. We also painted some lemons to go with our pink lemonade theme. All of the paper signs, pendants, and pinwheels are available in Cheeky’s Lemonade Kit (you can download and make yourself).
If you decide to do a lemonade stand at home, make sure to tag it with #CheekyLemonade and tag us so we can see, too!
