Take a look at some of the ways that kids can earn money listed below. Your child can do one or more of these activities to pocket some money for their time and hard work.


For teens old enough, babysitting is one of the most popular gigs out there. Kids and teens usually get along well, and most teens are perfectly capable of caring for little ones.

Babysitting can take place on occasion during the weekends, and teens can certainly earn a nice amount of money for this task.

Online Survey Sites

Online survey sites are available for children as young as 5 or 6 years old. With your help, children can give their thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics, including toys, cartoons, candy, foods, and more. Surveys pay various amounts, and come periodically.

Completing surveys is a good way to help your child learn more about computer use while also racking up cash. You can sign your child up for as many survey sites as you have time for. Sites that we like include PanelPolls.com and Kidzeyez.com.

Pet Sitting

Another great way for kids (of the right age) to make money is by pet sitting and pet walking. Everyone loves animals, and teens will certainly enjoy making money as they watch after them while their owners are gone.

Selling Homemade Goods

What kind of hobby is your child good at? That hobby can turn into an amazing amount of money selling products online and elsewhere.

Whether your child loves to make ornaments or has a thing for jewelry, there is a huge market for handcrafted goods, so there is great potential for your child to cash in nicely.

Car Washes and Bike Washes

Your child can set this up in the driveway or the location of your choice. You will need to help your child gather all of the supplies necessary for washing cars and bikes, including cleaning soap, sponges, water, a hose, etc.

Your child can determine the amount of money charged for each car wash, as well as the length of time they want to set up shop.

House Sitting

Children are fully capable of handling a number of house sitting tasks for the neighbors, such as collecting the mail each day and watering plants. You can help your child put up fliers around town to assist with this service.

Lawn Care

Another job for children who are old enough to perform the task. Lawn care, such as raking leaves, mowing the lawn and planting flowers are just a few of the tasks that children can perform to earn extra cash.

You can help your child advertise their services by placing ads in local papers and publications as well as online. Also, tell all of the neighbors and your friends about your child’s new services to help them along.

These are just a handful of the many ways that your child can earn money. Whether they want to save up for a new toy or a new video game, or have another purpose in mind for the cash, the methods listed above are among the best ways for them to get the money that they need.
