As Kindergarten came to a close for my daughter (tears!), I wanted to kick off summer in a big way. The first step was a pop-up party at the bus stop.
There are nearly 30 kids who get on and off at our bus stop, so you can imagine — that’s a lot of parents armed with water squirters.
In addition to the water fun, I turned my daughter’s lemonade stand into a Popsicle Stand. And set up shop with free Popsicles for all — with baby girl “in charge” of passing out the ice-cold treats.
Down the street, another bus stop was met with silly string and another 10 bags of flour!
If you are looking to kick off summer in a big way, I highly recommend a bus stop ambush (complete with Popsicles!). It could easily become tradition in your neighborhood too!

Such a cute idea! It’s not quite warm enough for squirt guns but it’s definitely warm enough for popsicles!

Summer really is all about Popsicle’s, isn’t it! I think I’ll break out a few for the kids today, it’s supposed to be a hot one.

She is too adorable. And I love the idea of setting up a free popsicle stand.

This is so precious! I love the stand
This is so awesome. The girls are real cuties. As a kid, my the neighborhood kids and I would have a kool-aid stand and do this for several years to make money. I love the idea of popsicles.
That is awesome! We’re hoping to upsize in the next year and my biggest request (aside from a pool) is a family friendly neighborhood like yours!
