Lemonade Stand

Parents have your kids read the lyrics to the Sammy Rabbit money song titled, Lemonade Stand!

Music is a fun, easy and time efficient way to talk to and teach kids about money!

It is also a Sammyriffic way to celebrate great money habits. Music and singing bring joy and energy to the money lesson learning process.

7 Step Money Lesson on the Joy of Earning Money for Kids Who Like Music

Here are seven simple steps that will have parents, teachers and trainers talking to and teaching young kids about the joys of earning money!

Step 1. Read Song Lyrics Together


Me and my brother

My brother and me

hand in hand, side by side

We built this Lemonade Stand

We built this Lemonade Stand


All our neighbor stop by

when they see our signs and balloons

open morning 'till noon

they order, sip, smile

and wave goodbye

We wish them a happy day,

we send them on their way



We did it together

We saw it through

hammered every nail and screw

Even used a little crazy glue,

discovered something new,

earning money is fun to do!



Going to save every time we get paid,

every time we serve a glass of fresh lemonade,

cause we're going to college

You know we're going to increase our earning knowledge

Make mom and dad proud,

just like we promised



We discovered something new,

earning money is fun to do!

Step 2. Listen to the Song

Now listen to the song Lemonade Stand together. Listen as many times as you like!

Step 3. Discuss Song

The song lyrics share beginning ideas and call attention to the importance of having fun earning money and saving some of it every time you get paid. In other words, get in the habit of saving and prioritizing paying yourself. Have a discussion with your child, children or students about the song. Ask them what lyrics from the song they like the most and why.

For example, I love the lyrics:

"... discovered something knew, earning money is fun to do..."

"...Going to save every time we get paid..."

"...You know we're going to increase our earning knowledge..."

Step 4. Activities

Step 6. Deposits

Applied knowledge is powerful and life transforming.

  • Give your child or children opportunities to earn and save money.
