When life gives you lemons... make lemonade!
Life had given us inclement weather those last few days of school, so making lemonade seemed like the perfect plan. As you can probably imagine, it was a HUGE hit!
*pumpkin carver (for cutting lemon)
*bowl for waste
*tiny spoon for removing seeds
*large spoon for stirring
*sugar (1/4 cupish)
*cups for serving
*cloth and sponge (for clean-up)
First, the child cuts the lemon in half. Eeek! Is that a knife?!?! No, it's a pumpkin carver! It's probably still semi-dangerous, but the child was shown how to use the carver correctly and safely. If you could see the concentration on his face, you would know he took the responsibility quite seriously. :)
Squeeze! Squeeze! Squeeze!
The child spoons out the seeds.
He pours the juice into the pitcher. Then, he adds the sugar, and tops it off with water. The line on the side of the pitcher (made from tape) shows him where to stop.
Finally, he stirs it up. Tiny feet begin to appear in the background. Everyone wants a taste!
This child is an obliging chef (bartender?).
He pours a glass for everyone, and they swarm in like bees to honey!
