Do you feel like you're endlessly doling out the cash to your kids? Put a stop to those tugs on your sleeve for the extra fiver, and teach your kids a lesson in financial responsibility at the same time. We've assembled the top moneymaking enterprises for kids . Print it out and have your kids take their pick. Then watch as their sense of competence and confidence, and their piggy banks, grow.


Car wash

Child care: babysitting, hosting weekday story hours or putting on puppet shows

Curb painting: kids who charge $2 to $4 per job can earn up to $50 a day

Garage cleaning

Helping people move: packing, unpacking, cleaning up

Lawn care: mowing, edging, weeding, trimming and flower bed maintenance

Lemonade stand (deluxe): make "gourmet lemonade" with crushed fruit and club soda. Or sell iced tea, home-baked goodies and handmade crafts.
