Homemade Lemonade

Nothing better on a hot day then homemade lemonade. It is such a easy drink to make and can easily be sold at kids lemon aid stands. For this recipe you will need either 6 large lemons or about a dozen small ones. We used the small ones just because that is what we found. First thing is to squeeze all the juice out of each cut lemon. We do have a hand juicer, you know the ones to place the lemon on and press down but that proved to be a little hard for little hands so we moved on to just squeezing them into a bowl. After you have all  the juice fill a pitcher up with 2 quarts of cold water. Add the lemon juice and mix in 1 cup of sugar. Let it chill in the fridge until you want to use it and pour over ice.
This was great on a hot day to enjoy and my kids loved that they hand made it. Just be careful of the lemon juice, my daughter did manage to get it into her eye. Always wash hands before and after dealing with food/drink. ENJOY!

For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
