The children have been busy having some Art 4 Sale on our front lawn. I’ve snuck a few items out there myself that aren’t Art, taking advantage of the traffic that the Art was drawing. Not lots of traffic. Just children from the neighbourhood actually.
Some of the canvas paintings we copied and made into cards to sell.
The neighbour girls sold lemonade and rice krispie squares one day that gave our kids the idea to sell their wares. Competition was born. And on another day when their batch of caramel popcorn didn’t turn out well enough (or in enough abundance) to warrant selling it, they brought it over for our kids to help them consume it. Great competitors, eh?
Sales weren’t great, but enough to keep the children interested.
And we had great opportunity to discuss business practices like
watching your expenditures, making fair trades, etc.
