Recycled Lemonade Stand

By  | 

For the little entrepreneur in your life, a 100% recycled cardboard lemonade stand. It assembles without tools and comes with a flat box that may be reused for storage.

The stand, from Cardboard Design, is made in the US and is free of any chemicals or dyes. The only downside I can think of is, uh, what if your kiddo spills the lemonade or it rains? Cardboard isn’t so waterproof.

Even still, this stand is fun since it can be custom decorated! Plus, it has room for supplies in the rear storage.

With spring coming up, it’s a nice time to also think about lemonade recipes!

  • 8 organic lemons (or two cups organic lemon juice)
  • 1 1/2 cups organic sugar
  • 2 cups water for sugar water
  • 8 or so cups cold water for diluting

Wash lemons and remove juice. Carefully heat sugar with 2 cups water in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Add lemon juice and sugar water in a pitcher, then dilute with cold water.

Refrigerate for an hour, then make any adjustments needed, such as adding more lemon juice if it’s too sweet. Serve with ice!
