You all know how much I love companies that give back and A.C. Moore is doing just that with their Alex’s Lemonade promotion this summer!
Nothing says summer more than craft projects and lemonade stands. This year, A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts (www.acmoore.com) is helping kids enjoy both with its annual FREE summer fun craft program. Held every Wednesday between June 26 and August 14, the program offers free craft activities from 1 p.m. through 3 p.m. for children ages 4 – 12 years. This year, the program kicks off with a summer fun tote bag project benefitting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer (www.AlexsLemonade.org).
The tote is such a fun project! The instructions below show you that it’s easy but your kids will have a lot of fun doing it – and it’s for a good cause!
On June 26, shoppers at all 139 A.C. Moore stores can purchase a canvas tote bag for $1. All monies raised through the sale directly benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. kids can use Simply Spray® to create a special design on their tote bags for free while learning more about holding their own lemonade stands in support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and pediatric cancer research. Lemonade stand projects can be found at the A.C. Moore website. Shoppers can also donate to the foundation via the purchase of paper “lemons” at checkout.
Summer Fun Wednesdays begin June 26 and continue through August 14. To find a local store, visit www.acmoore.com. Scheduled activities include:
June 26, Simply Spray® Canvas Bag project
July 3, Orb Factory Sticky Mosaics® Bling Stickers

These fun kid’s workshops sound awesome and once our new local store opens I am sure I will be taking Noah! I am so lucky he enjoys doing craft projects like this and what a great outlet for some summer fun!
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
