Pet sitting

Depending on the child’s age, pet sitting family and friends’ pets will be a great way for them to earn some extra cash.

Yard sale

Yard sales are one of my favorite ways for the entire family to make extra money over spring. We get rid of stuff we no longer need nor want, kids sell their lemonade and baked goods, and we all make money! How great is that?

Household chores

Create a household chore list and find them their age appropriate chores to do at home. From cleaning an extra room to organizing areas of the house, this is a great way for kids to earn money.

Babysitting/Mom’s Helper

Again, depending on their age, have your kids babysit younger kids, or helping moms or other parents is a great way to earn money over the spring.

  1. Thanks! It is so important that children learn about money and responsibility. My kids are too young to do most of those things, but I try to put them to work with other jobs. They get coins for killing tomato worms or helping with the laundry.
