No childhood summer is complete without a lemonade stand. The sweet and sour freshness, the relief of the cold ice on a hot day. The clink of change in an old tin box. It's all so wonderful.
Now your kids can add to that experience with an adorable lemonade stand coloring page from author-illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg.
The free, printable coloring page features two children selling lemonade for the low-low price of fifty cents, surrounded by floating lemons.

Lemonade coloring page ideas
Coloring pages always make a good, quick way to keep your child occupied, but this lemonade stand coloring page can also be a small business asset! Try one of the following ideas:
- Pass out free lemonade stand coloring pages to passersby to entice them to buy a cup of lemonade.
- Hang the coloring pages around the neighborhood with a big arrow pointing in the direction of your stand.
- Have crayons and blank coloring pages on hand for kids who buy lemonade but whose parents want to stop and yak it up with their fellow-parent-friends.
- Decorate your lemonade stand with finished coloring pages.
- Offer a free coloring page with the purchase of a cup of lemonade (or two!)

With your cup of lemonade in hand, you'll need some summer reading. Fortunately, Melanie has the perfect summer picture book, Mermaids on Parade! It was selected as a Bank Street Best Book, for the Texas Reading Club, and for PBS Kids Summer Reading Lists. It was named one of the Top Reprints of 2019 by Fuse#8 and an "Essential Brooklyn Book" by the Brooklyn Public Library.
