Lemon Boss

Lemon Boss is an annual program for Penny Savers and other kids ages 5-12. It’s designed to teach them how to start their own business, including securing a business loan, recording financial information, managing money, and developing customer service skills. And of course, it’s about making and selling lemonade!

As we’re all aware of the potential risk involved in coming into contact with strangers this year, we recommend that your Lemon Boss only “sell” lemonade to other members of your household. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still teach him or her some important money skills this summer.

Quality Counts 

Just like in the real business world, the quality of your product matters. Make sure your lemonade tastes good – and is cold! You could even add a lemon wedge or drink umbrella for extra pizazz.

Establish Ground Rules

How long will the stand stay in “business?” What are your hours? What will you charge? No matter what you decide, make sure there’s always an adult around to supervise.

Capture the Moment
