There is nothing more refreshing on a hott summer day then a big glass of lemonade! So, today was dedicated to just that! First we did an art project! I cut out a pitcher outline from white paper, next we used yellow crayons to color them, and then we used a thread spool to dip it in yellow paint and make lemons!

Afterwards, we used this recipe to make some real lemonade!

Perfect Lemonade Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes


1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)


1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.

2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.

3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.

Serve with ice, sliced lemons.

Yum! What a tasty treat :D
