Print it out and have your kids take their pick. Then watch as their sense of competence and confidence, and their piggy banks, grow.


AGES 10 AND UP

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
