My brother Dan is only 2 1/2 years younger than me, so we played together a lot, and we were often friends with our friends' siblings. My friend Meghan, her brother/Dan's friend Ethan, Dan, and I were always trying to come up with a way to make money. Usually I came up with the ideas, everybody else came up with the plan of action, and we all worked together.
Some of our more original ideas were a "plants and lemonade stand" and selling homemade potpourri door-to-door. One that never quite got off the ground was coming up with our own candy company. We all loved Lik-M-Aid fun dip, and we brainstormed a way to come up with our own version. The dip itself was easy--sugar and Kool-Aid. The dipping stick itself, however, proved to be a challenge for all of us. Among the ideas suggested was Super-gluing sugar together. We never did get around to trying that, thankfully. But we did eat a lot of candy for research purposes! ~ Becky from Indiana
