Setting up a lemonade stand is a triple treat for kids – it lets them have fun in the kitchen, it uses their creative skills and, if they’re lucky, adds to their pocket money fund.

They also get to interact with people – which is good for building self-confidence. This recipe is simple, inexpensive and harnesses the natural sweetness of honey as a healthier alternative to refined sugar.

Apart from making the lemonade from scratch, all you need to do is create an eye-catching sign and set up your stand on the day you want to do business.

Ensure the stand is in a safe position, well away from the street and traffic and, if smaller children are taking part, that they are well supervised.
