Lesson #32 lm3 Service in the Community

I loved Sister Mary Cooks talk from April 2011 Remember This: Kindness Begins With Me
I thought it would go perfect when talking about service.
I made these little Kindness (service) cards to give to each of my girls. I gave each girl a sheet of 9.
I told them to to do 4 acts of service in the next couple weeks. Each time they did a service I told them to fill out this little card to give to the person, and then also to give the person a blank card That they could fill out to give to someone after they do some service.
Kind of like a service chain letter (:

Lemonade Stand

My cute little 5 year old has been begging me all summer to have a lemonade stand. So That's what we FINALLY did this weekend.
I had this old butcher block table thing in my garage. I've been meaning to take it to DI but now I'm glad I didn't. I think I got it at home depot like 7 years ago. ( i added the bead board in the front) I thought it would be PERFECT for alittle lemonade stand
The front has 2 drawers that are perfect for holding straws, napkins, etc...
The back is open with some little shelves. Perfect for holding the cups, the money treasure chest, and our music :)
With screws we attached (2) 1x4'' boards to the back of the table & one across the top. Then I just painted the boards black with paint from walmart.
my dad and hubby cut and then screwed these little triangles to help stabilize the boards.
I was going to paint yellow and white stripes. But jane had the genius idea of using colored duck tape. It was so much faster!! I used Yellow acrylic paint for the Lemonade 25 cents sign.
