There is nothing quite so fun as helping kids become entrepreneurs. Kids can be successful in their own business, if they are given the right tools! And it can be a great way to sneak in some summer learning fun!
Today is the last day of our 10 Day Series on Summer Learning Fun. I hope you have found some of these tips to be helpful in keeping little brains active and learning this summer!
Helping kids become entrepreneurs
I have been so excited to share today’s tip with you! I am an accountant when I’m not being a mommy and homeschool teacher, so this tip is really close to my heart.
There is no better way to learn than by doing. Someone can tell you how to do something over and over, but until you actually do it, you probably won’t remember.
My kids have been bugging me all summer to let them have a lemonade stand. I have been reluctant, because I didn’t want to sit out in the hot sun just to look at a jug of lemonade on the table. But they finally talked me into it! So I figured if they were going to have a lemonade stand, they should learn something from the experience.
So I have created a mini e-book for kids to encourage them to be entrepreneurs. It lays out the process of being a business owner in a few easy steps that are easy enough for a kid to understand. There are lots of great business gurus out there with plenty of tips for business owners, but not very many focus on helping kids be successful in their ventures. Whether they try a lemonade stand, or dog walking, or lawn care, kids can be surprisingly successful if they put the effort into it. This workbook has colorful graphics and thoughtful questions to help them make the most of their entrepreneurial endevours. I hope you will find it helpful in your homeschool!
So have you and your kids ever tried being business owners or Kid Execs? I would love to hear about it!
