Help your child get started with their own business with this free printable kids business planner!

While on a recent road trip, we were talking about business ideas with the kids. Of course, the traditional lemonade stand came up. Even with that simple business idea, the kids were surprised to learn that they would need to actually pay for supplies which would come out of their profit.

We also discussed ways to increase the value of lemonade, like in the book What Should Danny Do when they sell a super-power with the lemonade. Overall, that one discussion opened up a learning opportunity for our kids to learn about what all goes into the running of a business and the financial side of it.

With that in mind, I would love to share with kids business planner with you! Keep reading and scroll to the bottom to download the PDF. This free downloadable PDF will help your kids plan their first business and get organized.
