Two Nederland boys sell lemonade for allowance money

Posted: Updated:

Beat the summer heat with an ice cold glass of lemonade. Serving refreshing glasses is how Breylon and Easton Cropper are earning their summer allowance.

Their bright yellow stand sits on South 29th Street in Nederland.

It's all work for these young workers who use a unique recipe for their one of a kind specialty drink.

"We actually follow a Paula Deen recipe and it seems to keep people happy," says their mom, Courtney Cropper.

Once the recipe is whipped together, here's what they do next.

"I grab the cup and then I put ice in it and then put a lemon and I put lemonade in it," says Breylon and Easton as they go over their strategy together.

Breylon and Easton's idea came when they asked their parents for toys.

"We discussed ways for them to earn their own money and to buy those things for themselves," says Cropper.

Easton came up with the lemonade stand idea. Their dad pulled out his tools, built the stand and now they're selling out of glasses every day.

"It's important to us that they learn how to serve others most importantly and also earn their own money," says Cropper.

When all the lemonade is gone and enough money is made, 5-year-old Breylon and 4-year-old Easton will build a tree house and go on a shopping spree at Toys R Us.

You can find them at their lemonade stand on most sunny days.
