Young Entrepreneurs

School is out and the kids are home! The weather is nice and it’s a great time to spend quality time with the children. A great way to do that is setting up a lemonade stand! The kids can help make the lemonade. Grab a few fresh lemons and cut them in half. Juice them into a pitcher. Add sugar, water and ice. You can also make it a “fancy” drink by adding raspberries. Drop some raspberries to the bottom of the pitcher and crush them with a large spoon. Then you can do the traditional steps to make lemonade. Squeeze the lemons; add water, sugar and ice. Construct a lemonade stand by taking an ordinary desk or table and tie a large sign to the front. The sign should say “Lemonade!” and the cost of each cup. If you don’t want to charge, you don’t have to. It can show the kids to be more kind to people by offering them a free cool beverage. This is a great way to spend time outside, and show kids what it is like to own their own business. It would teach them to be nice to customers and at the same time they are learning basic people skills and the value of a dollar. At the end of the lemonade sale, take them to the toy store and they can spend their earnings!

Boston Fun : Part 3

The Freedom Trail
Bostons official Freedom Trail Tours take you to places where history was made. Walk into history along the iconic Freedom Trail– the 2.5 mile red line leading to nationally significant historic sites, each one an authentic treasure. Preserved and dedicated by citizens of Boston in 1951, the Freedom Trail is a unique collection of muesems, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a shop, and historic markets that tell you the story of the American Revolution and beyond. Led by the 18th-century costumed Freedom Trail Players, tours feature tales of high treason, mob agitations, revolutionary actions, and partisan fights of the American Revolution. Discover the rich history of the American Revolution, as it began in Boston, where every step tells an intersting story about the historic Boston.
I remember I went on a school field trip as a middle-schooler. It was a great experience and it taught me alot about the history of Boston, where I was born and raised. It’s interesting to learn about the background and about how the city was founded. It’s really interesting to see how people dressed back then as well. It is really a cool experience to learn the history of the city you grew up in.

Fun in Boston

Faneuil Hall

Faneuil Hall Marketplace is actually four great places in one location– Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, North Market, and South Market. These marketplaces are all set around a cobblestone promenade where jugglers, magicians, and musicans entertain the passers-by. So by all means; stroll, shop, eat, laugh, wander, wonder, and explore it all.

To better accomadate the merchant shoppers, Faneuil Hall was expanded in 1826 to include Quincy Market, which was designed in the then- popular Greek Revival style and later dubbed for Boston Mayor Josiah Quincy.

Today, what is known as Faneuil Hall Marketplace is still Boston’s central meeting place; offering visitors and residents alike an unparalleled urban market place. The unique array of shops, restaurants and outdoor entertainment has made it a premier urban destination that attracts more than 18 million visitors annually.

It’s a great place to take the kids to lunch. They can walk around the old cobblestone grounds and shop for their back to school clothes and shoes. There’s a bunch of entertainers who play their music and let children engage with them and teach them how to do new dance moves or even sing through their microphones. It’s very close to the aquarium as well, which is placed right on Charles River, so you can watch the boats come and go as well! So many fun things to do!
