Money Making Ideas

Kid Biz Moneymakers

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.


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

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.

Maid-for-a-day: clean closets, shine shoes or help throw a party

Odd jobs agency: set one up with neighborhood kids

Pet care: groom pets, give flea baths, clean fish tanks or pet-sit

Pick up newspapers and mail: for neighbors on vacation.

Plant watering and sitting

Teens and work

hi - my 14 year old daughter just signed up to sell Avon! Already she is learning how to figure out cost and how to sell and talk to people. IN this project she will have to do many things - deal with people, place orders, make change, suggestive selling, how much to invest in bags and books etc. If she can make enough $$ to buy her own beauty products etc for school that would be great.
