Lemons and Lemonade

Lemons and Lemonade

Summer is the perfect time to learn about lemons and lemonade! But anytime of the year is fun too!

Show kids a lemon-or lemons let them explore their texture, shape, smell, color and then ask questions about those topics-- Are lemons smooth, or rough or bumpy?  what color are lemons? can you think of other things that are yellow? What does it smell like- sour or sweet? do you want to taste a lemon and see what it looks like on the inside? Tell them we are going to explore and learn with our senses about lemons and lemonade today

Sing a Song of Lemonade
Sing a song of lemonade.
We'll pour it in a cup.
We'll stir it with a straw
And then we'll sip it up.
It will be so refreshing
We'll have to have some more,
And we'll be drinking lemonade forever, ever more! 


If your happy and you know it – (clap hands, stomp feet, shout hooray)

Make Fresh Lemonade--Recipe from Things to Share and

Fresh Lemonade
Stir together:

  • 2 cups of fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 7 large lemons)
  • 6 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
Pour over ice and serve.

Pre-cut lemons and then have the kids help squeeze lemons using with different tools - metal open close squeezer/juicer, wooden lemon reamer, glass or plastic juicer - then they can help measure the juice in a measuring cup. 

Have A Lemonade Taste Test!

Purchase or make several different kinds of lemonade (fresh, powdered, concentrate, bottled, etc.) and have a taste test! Compare and contrast the color, clarity, flavor, sweetness, tartness, etc. Which kind/brand does your child like best?
