Lemonade Stand is a free educational game online that teaches economic principles to kids. Experiment by using an allowance to set up your lemonade stand and purchase needed materials... then see what happens! Depending on sales, you might need to make some changes. The goal is to keep your stand open for a full 30 days, rain or shine!
