Simply Spray: Project Paint Review and Giveaway!

My girls have been begging me to have a Lemonade Stand since our first heat wave in April.  Having kids in school or really just having kids at all, there are always projects to be done.  Some are more complicated than others, especially when the adult has to do most of the work.  I finally caved on having a lemonade stand, but mostly because I want to try out a new Simply Spray paint call Project Paint!  If you remember my painted patio furniture, this is the same company!

Why I love Project Paint by Simply Spray:
Non-toxic, non flammable paint that KIDS CAN USE!
It is great to use on poster-board, wood and fabric.  This means it is perfect for birthday party t-shirts, banners, or school projects just to name a few!  Just my kind of paint. :)

We decided to hold our first Lemonade Stand...and to use Project Paint by Simply Spray for our sign!
I helped the girls cut out some stencils, and left the rest to them.

We took the poster-board and stencils outside and the girls placed them where they wanted.
I was impressed at their design abilities!  Then we got to painting.  Little Gal, almost 10 started first, and that is when we made one mistake.  Too close, and pointing the can down...a big streak of paint flew onto the poster.  Luckily, it was super easy to spray over.  We had to make sure that the girls were pulling the "trigger" all the way back to get a nice even spray.

Little Sister, 6 years old...took a turn as well!

Once we let it dry, we removed the stencils to reveal our lemonade poster!

Inside, Little Sister wrote Lemonade and Little Gal traced it in marker.

I love how it looks like a child wrote it, because they did!  
It adds to the cuteness and honestly pulls on heart strings of passers by.

Time to set up outside!  We happen to live across the street of a golf course,
so the kids had a prime location.  We had 7 golfers, 1 biker, 2 joggers, and 6 cars all stop for a lovely chilled glass of lemonade.  Price: Free!  Don't want to get in trouble with any officers of the law.  A donation jar was available and it collected almost $50.  I am still in shock!


One more thing I want to show off are the lemonade sippers that we are all using this summer!
Pictured below, my friend sells them from her darling Etsy shop, Bittersweet Lemonade!
Dishwasher safe, and free of any toxins because they are simple glass jars!
I love the old fashioned look.  

Now for the fun part...

50 bucks??!! Chloe made 2 dollars doing one and I thought THAT was pretty good. Geez. I think I need to dress up like a child a sell lemonade. Do you think I could pass for a 6 year old?
