Kid Biz: 101 Bizainy Summer Activity Kits

June 5, 2014

BizainyThe ice cream truck has been making its rounds in our neighborhood, signifying the unofficial start of summer. The unmistakable sound of that piped-in music seems to act as a siren call for my 10-year-old, a budding entrepreneur who is eager to drag out a table and chairs and set up a makeshift lemonade stand (thankfully, we have very kindhearted, generous neighbors). Even though she considers herself a seasoned veteran when it comes to selling summertime refreshments, it couldn’t hurt to learn a thing or two about making her business even more successful. If you have a kid destined to flex her entrepreneurial muscles this summer, consider treating her one of themed summer activity kits from Bizainy. Packed with all the essential tools to help kids kick-start their business, each kit is tailored to a specific business model, if you will, that’s designed to get their venture off the ground. We love the Lemonade Stand Activity Kit , which includes banners for kids to customize, a money box, sales pad and even an instructional book for setting a budget, creating a sales strategy and building a marketing campaign. Other kits include the Babysitting Start-up and Charity Bake Sale. Yes, we’re still talking about a kid-based business here; cultivating solid financial habits early on sets the stage for a healthy outlook on money. And that’s something you just can’t put a price on.

In a Nutshell: Old-fashioned lemonade stands get a modern-day boost with money-making tips for budding businessmen and women.
