I have never actually made homemade lemonade myself, but have always wanted to so I thought this would be the perfect thing to add to our Summer Fun List. Lemonade always makes me think about beautiful warm summer days playing outside and having a good time.
First we gathered all the supplies we would need:
6 lemons, 1/2 a cup of sugar and 1 cup of water
I also got out my little juicer and pink glass pitcher.
First, I made a simple syrup with 1/2 a cup of sugar and 1 cup of water. This was a simple step and all I did was just melt the sugar into the water in a saucepan on the stove then let cool.
Then it was time for the girls to get to work!!
Emily and Juliette took turns juicing the lemons. I cut them in half and they used their muscles to push it around on the little glass juicer. They thought it was neat that the pits stayed in the top and the juice flowed to the bottom.
Time for a taste….the girls loved it!!
