Garage Sale - Bake Sale

My son seems to share my entrepreneurial ambitions…

Recently, he has teamed up with a neighbor girl to start a detective agency. They charge $1.00 per case. Unfortunately, the detective business has been a bit slow lately so I thought I'd help him out with his money making efforts by letting him make some treats to sell at the garage sale we're having next weekend.

Turns out, he's been invited to spend the weekend at a friends house out of town so the bake sale will have to wait but we made some Puppy Chow anyway. (here's a link to the recipe). I thought it would be fun to sew the tops of the bags shut like real dog food. (I ordered the glassine bags from Bake it Pretty) The photos of the pretzel rods and rice crispy balls are from previous posts (Pretzel Rods, Something on a Stick) but we would have made them had we actually been having a bake sale.

July 9, is National Sugar Cookie Day! This Tuesday I'll be kicking off a month-long celebration leading up to the big day so please check back!

Have a great week!

Very cute. Not your typical lemonade stand, right? We need a trip to Disneyland...this would be a great way to raise money!

What a great idea to package the puppy chow that way! Talk about an instant sell out! I had never heard of puppy chow until I moved back to the Dakotas and wondered what this delicious treat was. I couldn't stop laughing when I heard the name!

Creativity is genetic, no doubt. Or at least, contagious!

I always find your blog delightful and always enjoy stopping by. I too think the puppy chow packaging is so cute and clever! Are those Candy Rice Krispie Treats (on the sticks)?

Most impoertantly, I applaud the lessons you are teaching your son. Way to go!
