Step 5: Paint the parts and make the sign

Prime the wood with latex primer on all the sides and edges. Allow the primer to dry completely. Using exterior paint, finish the stand in your favorite colors. While the paint dries, make a sign by drawing the letters L-E-M-O-N-A-D-E on individual cards with colorful markers.

To parents: Speed the drying process by placing the pieces on sawhorses in the sun or setting up a drying station with fans in the garage.
