On a hot day, set up a lemonade stand—and serve up this twist on the classic lemonade recipe. Squeeze fresh lemons, add simple syrup, pour in seltzer water, and you have a homemade lemon soda.
This fun recipe teaches kids how to use these kitchen tools: citrus juicer, measuring cup, strainer, pitcher, small saucepan and a large spoon. They’ll learn about measuring, stirring and juicing a lemon. When they taste the result and share it with their siblings and friends, the next step is lemonade retail on a kid-sized scale.
The neighbors will be lining up for seconds!
