The Sprout Stand- a student request and student led activity

Wow!  What a week it’s been!  The Sprout kids were really excited and so organized for their student request to have a lemonade stand.  We discussed being an entrepreneur. Giving to a charity: which they all agreed they would be collecting for The Tree House Humane Society.  And we talked about net profit.

 

The group made the lemonade and Rice Krispy treats at Sprout Camp.  Some kids went home and baked cookies, made strawberry ice cubes, and home made things too.  One kiddo put in her recyclable jewelry collection she made earlier this week.  Another has been making dog and cat toys! (see the video below to see how much fun my doggy had with her cute toy!)

It was a great show of team effort and creativity!

Well the results were amazing!  Thanks to the amazing camp teachers at Roycemore School who brought their camp groups to “The Sprout Stand”

We are giving almost $20 to The Tree House Humane Society and each camper took home $10!  Some campers have their own charities that they said they would give a bit of their earnings to their own charities and some others said they will spend it!  I encouraged them to put a little into savings as well 🙂
