Kids In Business? Check Out This Children’s Business Fair.
It all starts with a lemonade stand, right?
People start to line up to quench their thirst on a hot summer day. A cute kid or two serving up cool cups of lemonade and asking for their quarter.
Customers hand over their dollar and many say, "keep the change".
It's usually something like this that introduces almost every kid to the world of making money, AKA business. It spurs them to wonder what else they can come up with and how they can make more than just a quarter per transaction.
My kids figured out the next thing on the list is a garage sale. They started to pull a bunch of toys out they didn't play with anymore and started to tag them with prices.
This is where they went wrong. They didn't understand why a toy couldn't have a $20 price tag on it, especially when it didn't cost that much in the store. Now, there's something happening that will help them understand that a bit better.
Acton Academy Amarillo is having a kids business fair on April 23rd from 9a-12p. If you have children aged 7-14 years old, they can attend this free event where they'll learn how to create a business plan, make a product then sell that very product all on the same day.
Understanding business and how it works is an integral part of life. Teaching these things to them at an early age could help produce more entrepreneurs or local business owners down the road. I can tell you if my kids weren't playing baseball on Saturday, they'd be there.
