When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, right? So when life keeps you home, you make a backyard lemonade stand. That's what our family is doing with a little help from Sparkling Ice® and Safeway, and I'm super excited to show you how.

We've always spent a lot of time in our backyard, but right now it seems like we are living out there all day. There's nothing more refreshing than a cool drink when you're out in the sun, so why not make it fun with a backyard lemonade stand?

I have everything you need to make your own backyard lemonade stand, including a free printable sign and instructions for making your own custom lemonade sippers!

Stocking Your Backyard Lemonade Stand

The first (and most important) part to creating your own backyard lemonade stand is stocking it with drink choices that everyone will love. That's why I choose Sparkling Ice Classic Lemonade, Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry, and Sparkling Ice Black Cherry. And I can grab them in the drink aisle at Safeway on my regular grocery shopping trip - no need to add a second stop. Try today and save!

PS - some Safeway locations are offering curbside pickup and delivery! Click here to find the location closest to you.

Before you shop, be sure to download the Safeway mobile app to plan your shopping, and find super easy ways to save on everything your family needs.

Sparkling Ice is my favorite refreshment for warm afternoons in the backyard. With zero sugar, natural colors and flavors, and only 5 calories per serving - it's a beverage we can all feel good about enjoying. Plus, it has a full, fruity flavor that you can't find in other sparkling waters!

A variety of Sparkling Ice bottles are my go-to for stocking our backyard lemonade stand, and it's the perfect drink to fill our custom lemonade sippers.

DIY Mason Jar Glasses

These DIY lemonade glasses are a super cute addition to your backyard lemonade stand, and they are so easy to make! You can use traditional glass mason jars, or choose a plastic version for the kids.

Here's what you need to make them yourself!

  • Mason jars
  • Lemon design (you can download it below, along with the printable lemonade stand sign)
  • Yellow and pink vinyl
  • Cutting machine and vinyl accessories (transfer tape, etc.)

Start by downloading the lemon slice design. Then, upload it into your cutting machine design program, and resize if needed. Cut the design onto your yellow and pink vinyl, and cut out the individual lemon slices.

Rub the outer surface of your mason jar with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry. This helps the vinyl to adhere to the surface.

Then place one lemon slice on the side of the jar, and use transfer tape to place the vinyl onto the jar.

Repeat this process on all 4 sides, alternating colors. That's it! Your new lemonade sipper is ready to go.

Repeat the process to create as many glasses as you'll need for your family, then you'll be ready to set up your backyard lemonade stand!

Setting up your lemonade stand is easy. You'll need:

  • Sturdy table
  • Printable lemonade stand sign
  • 12x12 printed card stock (optional)
  • Chilled Sparkling Ice® 17 oz. bottles in an assortment of flavors
  • Paper or reusable straws
  • Mason jar glasses

Start by printing out the "ice cold lemonade" sign. You can trim it and glue on top of colored 12x12 card stock, if you'd like to give it an extra pop. Place the sign on your table.

Then, stock a container with your chilled Sparkling Ice bottles. Add your paper straws and new mason jar glasses, and invite your family to grab a drink and enjoy!

Grab your favorite flavors of Sparkling Ice at Safeway and create your own backyard lemonade stand this summer.
