  3. Add ½ cup of water.
  4. Add approximately 1 teaspoon of sugar.
  5. Zip the bag securely.

Before you begin the activity, try gathering up all the necessary items and then asking your child what they think you can make from the ingredients. Have them make observations about those ingredients. Ask them to make predictions about the steps involved and what they think will happen when the ingredients are mixed together. Be sure to encourage them to describe what they see, smell, hear, taste, and feel throughout the whole process.

This recipe can even be taken “on the road.” Simply put the lemons and sugar into zip-closure bags before your next picnic. Add the water when you get to your destination for some on-the-spot, homemade refreshment.
