Jaionnah told us that a few years ago, she had a lemonade stand -- but after wanting a cotton candy machine, she and her dad came up with the idea to sell cotton candy at parties.

Jaionnah says they practice making the cotton candy because sometimes it can be hard since it is a new skill... and after they practice, they get to try the cotton candy themselves.

When asked what their favorite part of making cotton candy is:
“Passing it out,” said Arih, age six.

"Mine? Probably making the cotton candy and handing it to my sister," said Jaionnah, age ten.

"My favorite part is helping people and passing it out, and putting it in the bags, and asking people which one they want,” said Jailah, age seven.
