Lemonade stand recipes from Country Time`s Robin Ross

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Summer is winding down, but there are still a couple weeks in which you'll have to keep the kids occupied. What's an old summertime tradition that every kid loves? Setting up their own lemonade stand!

Country Time Lemonade's Robin Ross joined FOX 32 News at Noon on Friday to share some ideas on creating the actual stands that go hand in hand with what they're interested in.

Ross also had suggestions for the more creative kiddies, for the chefs in training and for those who want to use their lemonade stand to give back.

In fact, Country Time has a charity centered around lemonade stands, which makes the project of helping those in need so very easy to do.
