Did you know? Until Tuesday, March 12th, 2019 it was against the law for children to operate a lemonade stand in the state of Colorado! Say what?! I know what you are thinking, that is the craziest thing you have ever heard, right? We agree, however, Colorado recently passed a law that allows children to be children and operate their very own lemonade stands!
There was a situation that occurred a few years ago that led to this law to being passed. Children selling lemonade were told to take down their stand because it wasn't a 'licensed' business. I'm sure many of us have childhood memories of setting up a lemonade stand to earn some extra money. Looking back, selling something as simple as lemonade really taught us valuable life lessons such as how to interact with people, money management, math, and of course work ethic!
