Budding Entrepreneurs

by

The girls announced the other day that they wanted to make a cookie stall. I asked why and of course they said, “To make money!” how very enterprising of them.

We all went shopping and I purchased some cookie making ingredients. We got ingredients for chocolate chip and ones with smarties in them. Both batches ended up very yummy indeed (You will have to take my word for it)

As you might imagine the twins were excited about helping and then got distracted. I ended up making them and got it all organised. Friday (yesterday) was meant to be the day of the stall however it was over 80km winds and just not a nice day to be outside. It was also the day of all the fires here in the mountains and of course the day I had to drive to the airport to pick hubby up.

Since it was not to be yesterday, today was the day for the cookie stall. Kids were so excited I set it up while I was still in my pajamas and not yet had breakfast.

Just opening the Cookie stall. The girls are very excited.

I set the kids up at the front of the house to allow passers-by, next door neighbours and anyone going to the bus stop to purchase. Some people were very generous and gave more than they were buying so that was nice, and thanks for those that did that.

The girls were so excited when they got their first sale from our lovely next door neighbour, then the other sales made them giggle with delight and they raced to count the money that have earned. Very cute to watch.

Happy with their first sale!

Wow $7.90 it was a success! Kids happy

They were counting the number of coins not the amount or value of what the coins represents. I told them that the number does not match the value. I counted the money with the twins and they managed to get $7.90 out of their first day trading at their cookie stand.

Eating the profits. Yum!

We did have issues of them getting a bit bored due to low foot traffic in the street and spilling milk over the sign at one point. The girls had a good time and now are planning what else they can sell tomorrow. Maybe this has created business monsters? Who knows?

Have your kids created stalls? What did they sell? Send in your comments.
