Lemonade in a Bag (Single Stem Idea)

School may be starting but it is still summer around here!
We made this homemade lemonade several times this summer and enjoyed it every time so I thought I would share it.
It really is Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy and there are many fun ways to tweek it! One time we had a taste test with three different bags (lemonade, limeade and a mix) ~this would be fun in a classroom as well. Another time we put the lemons and sugar in the bags and then went to a friend’s house and added the water ~ this would be great for bringing to the park as well. This time we added different types of mint that we had growing in the garden (I am a sucker for a taste test). It is best to do this outside or with a bowl underneath for possible spills.

Enjoy this Single Stem idea of Lemonade in a Bag for
Sprouts and Seedlings (toddler/preschool and elementary age)...
The Stuff
The Prep
The FUN!
  • Ziplock bags (don’t go with the cheapo ones because they leak)
  • Lemons/limes/or both
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Straw
  • Ice (optional)
  • Mint (optional)
Cut lemons and limes into quarters and remove seeds

1. Kiddos put 2 quarters of lemon or lime in the bag. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar or agave nectar (this way was yummy as well). Add ½ cup of water. *Optional ~add mint.

2. Seal bag tightly and squish the lemons and/or limes.

3. Open one small part of the bag and insert a straw. Drink up! Delicious!
