Want to make money as a kid?

In this article we will go over some of the time-tested ideas as well as several unique ways kids can make money.

How to Make Money as a Kid

Since everyone is different, we wanted to give you a variety of ways that you can make money as a kid. Here they are.

1. Organize a Garage Sale

Not only will this help with an immediate cash flow problem and clean out the house, but it will hone in on a child’s project management skills.

If you don’t want to slave away at an in-person garage sale all day, you could always try selling stuff online. One easy option to consider is Decluttr.

This site allows us to just scan bar-codes of products and they will instantly give you the price they pay for it.

2. Sell Your Crafts

Hot glue gun for crafts

Etsy is not only an amazing way to make some extra cash selling crafts, but it can also help kids tap into their inner creative self.

Time management skills also come into play due to the fact that there are so many moving parts in building an Etsy business.

3. Start a T-shirt Business

Is your child a creative that intuitively knows what people want? If this is the case, they should definitely consider starting a T-shirt business and develop their creative side.

This could be an additional product to sell in an Etsy shop, on Redbubble or Cafepress, or sell them in local markets.

4. Offer Pet Care Services

Anything from walking, washing or overnight stays with furry legged friends, pet care can be a fun way for kids to make extra money.

Older children may be able to start a Teen Caregiver account on Care.com to find pet sitting jobs.

5. Take Surveys

Taking surveys often requires you to be over age 18, but with Swagbucks, children 13 and older can take surveys to earn money.

Lifepoints starts at age 14 and offers similar payouts.

This is also one job that can be done in the comfort of your own home.

6. Start a Babysitting Business

Moms need a break sometimes. If your child is good with younger kids, this is a great option for them.

Teenagers can also set up a profile on Care.com with the help of a parent.

7. Do Odd Jobs

Older children may be able to do odd jobs online via websites like Fiverr,  and Snagajob. Fiverr requires a minimum age of 13 and Snagajob’s minimum age is 14.

Check out these places that hire 14 and 15-year-olds.

This is a great way to make some quick cash when you need it.

8. Started a Design Business

The creative field can make a lot of money! Try starting out with designing logos or smaller things for people’s websites.

You can offer your services on Fiverr for $5 for small graphics and you can charge more for bigger projects or add-on services.

9. Start an Instagram Account

Instagram logo

Mila Stauffer, has stolen the hearts of over 333,000 Instagram followers with her sassy, yet adorable videos of her thoughts.

Want to know how old she is? She hasn’t even made it to the double digits yet. She is 3 years old. And she has been able to get sponsorships from the major players like Tylenol.

If you learn how to make money with Instagram you could pay for college before starting kindergarten!

10. Start a Jewelry Business

Jess Lively states in a podcast episode with Pat Flynn that she accidentally started her own business at the age of 15 when she was making jewelry at a pool and people were coming up to her and wanting to purchase it.

She made a couple hundred dollars. Not bad for a day lounging around for a day at the day at the pool.

11. Have a Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand

This is a timeless way to make money as a kid.

Having a lemonade stand can teach them the ins and outs of product oriented business with inventory control, cost management, advertising and customer service.

12. Wash Cars

Washing cars is an excellent way for kids to get out from behind the computer and out in the sun to exercise while making money.

13. Win a Pageant Show

You don’t have to put on 10 pounds of makeup to make a lot of money with pageant shows.

If your child has a specific skill set that they love doing and they are genuinely good at it, definitely sign them up for a pageant show.

These skills could include but not limited to singing, dancing, miming, playing an instrument, etc.

14. Become a Boat Cleaner

If you live near the ocean or another body of water, this is a great way to not only make some great money but get some exercise.

15. Water Plants for the Elderly

Watering can watering plant

Oftentimes the elderly are too tired or forget to water their plants. This is a great opportunity to not only make some extra cash but give back to the community as well!

16. Change People’s Car Oil

Getting your oil changed is often one of the most dreaded tasks of being an adult. You may have to sit in the waiting room for hours at the dealership, sometimes even if you have an appointment!

If your kid can pick up the skill of learning how to change the oil and offer to let the customers wait in the comfort of their own home, that will give your child the competitive advantage against other oil changing services.

17. Repair Cracked Windshields

Again, this is an unpleasant and often times an unexpected task that is a hassle for many people.

If your child can offer this specific service and meet their customers at their homes, this could give them the competitive advantage against dealerships.

18. Have a Bake Sale

Cupcake for bakesale

This is a great way to not only make some extra cash, but also improve your skills in the kitchen.

You could sell your goods at a farmer’s market, or maybe even a local business fair or craft show.

19. Put Up Holiday Decorations

Holiday decorations can take hours to put up each year. If your child has spare time to do this task for busy parents or the elderly, they can make some extra cash and give back to the community.

20. Clean Tile Grout

brush for cleaning tile

This is a dirty and time-consuming job that many people don’t want to do. It involves scrubbing between the lines of the tiles and showers. It can be a lucrative job due to the fact that no one else wants to do it.

21. Clean Gutters for Your Neighbors

Having dirty or overfilled gutters can cost a lot of money for homeowners down the road if they are not cleaned out on a regular basis.

You can clean them out by using a portable sprayer. As an extra service, you could even install gutter guards for your customers. This will save them a lot of money and time down the road.

22. Aerate Lawns

Yards not only need to be cut and watered, but they also need oxygen in order for the lawn to be healthy. If you own or rent an aerator, this could be a lucrative endeavor for your child.

23. Clean Furniture

Cleaning furniture may mean disinfecting beds, couches, chairs, and more. Believe it or not, furniture needs to be cleaned on a regular basis.

To make more money, try to target homes with dogs. Pet owners tend to have their furniture cleaned more often.

24. Wash Windows

Window Cleaning Tools

A lot of higher end homes have tall windows and can afford to outsource this task. To maximize revenue, you can offer the services for inside and outside work.

You can also offer your services to local stores with lots of windows as well.

25. Organize Closets 

If your child has a special gift for keeping things organized, then this money-making opportunity is a great option.

Most people don’t have time or the desire to keep their closets neat and organized and may be willing to pay someone else to do it for them.

26. Paint the Exterior of a Home

Painting the house is a major job that homeowners often put off due to the fact that it is either too hot out or too cold.

However, kids may be able to offer this service during spring break or summer break. They can also charge a lot of money due to the fact that it is such an unwanted task.

27. Paint the Interior of a Home

Paint brush painting wall

Again, this is another time-consuming task that oftentimes home owners put off. They may be very willing to outsource it someone else.

28. Paint Window Frames

Does your child have a careful hand? This can be beneficial in terms of dealing with the crevasses of the door and window frames.

29. Paint Garages

Garages are often the last part of a home that get any TLC. If you child has spare time and this has been on the to-do list of your neighbors, they may be able to help get it crossed off. For a fee, of course!

30. Paint Fences

People love to have their home to have a cohesive feel, however, that requires a lot of tedious work. If a homeowner already has everything else painted, your child might be able to step in and paint the fence to finish the job.

31. Offer Manicures or Nail Painting

A lot of women love being pampered. Being pampered in the comfort of their own home is an added bonus and offers a competitive advantage to your child.

32. Brush and Groom Dogs

Dog getting groomed

A lot of dogs need to be brushed daily and bathed regularly. However, it can be a hassle for pet owners, especially if they have long, curly hair, like a cocker spaniel.

If your child loves animals and has the patience for squirming animals, then this is a definite option for them.

33. Change Air Filters

It can be difficult for some people to get to high ceilings and change the filters themselves. This is a great service to offer, especially for the elderly or a soon-to-be mom.

This is also a service that your child could perform regularly, giving them a chance at repeat income.

34. Install Fences

Fence icon

Homeowners love the idea of the white picket fence, but they don’t always have the time or willpower to put that idea into fruition. If your child is handy, they may be able to help make it happen for homeowners.

35. Clean Out Motor Homes

This is a great service to offer people that you know that are about to go on vacation, or people that use their camper frequently.

Cleaning is never a fun task, so they are probably all too happy to hire your child to do for them.

36. Shine Shoes

People have gotten so busy with work that they forget the small details that make their wardrobe seem put-together.

Offering this service could put a little bit more of a pep in their step from looking sharper, as well as your child when they have a little more jingle in their pocket.

37. Dispose of Christmas Trees

People love picking out Christmas trees, but dismantling and disposing after the fact is an entirely different scenario.

This could be a great option for your child, especially if your child can drive or has access to someone who can drive, as well as a truck to haul them away.

38. Run Errands for Moms

Bag of groceries

Moms are really busy, especially new moms. Offering your services to get lunch or pick up some baby food is a great way to make some extra cash on the side.

39. Weed Gardens

Homeowners love to outsource this, as it is more of a tedious task. It’s a win-win situation for the homeowner and your child. The homeowner doesn’t have to do it and your child makes some extra cash.

40. Build Sandboxes for Families

If your child is handy, they may be able to build sandboxes for families in your neighborhood. This is a cheap way to keep that family’s kid entertained for hours.

41. Operate and Repair Sprinklers

Sprinklers need to be maintained and repaired from time to time. Like all things, they can break, leak or need to be installed. For handy children, this can be a great business.

42. Catch and Sell Lizards for Pets

If you live in a state where lizards are common (which is most of the U.S. and world), why not catch young lizards and sell them as pets?

Lizards can make great pets for reptile lovers and can be very personable despite their somewhat off-putting appearance (I’m talking to you, moms and dads).

Note that in order to make money selling lizards, you’ll have to check with your state’s Department of Commerce. This is because some states have specific rules for selling lizards and other reptiles.

Also, you’ll have to have habitats in your home that are conducive to keeping the lizards safe and healthy as you wait for buyers. Advertise the lizards you have for sale amongst your friends at school or via social media.

43. Collect and Sell Firewood

Firewood logs piled up

Everyone loves to enjoy a fire surrounded with friends and family members. However, collecting and splitting wood is not fun for everyone.

If your child loves to be outside and wants the exercise, this is a great option to make money.

44. Start a Fundraiser

If your child is looking to make money for a notable cause, starting a fundraiser is a great way to do so.

Organizing an event will also help your child practice their communication and persuasion skills.

45. Lay Sod

More homeowners are using sod instead of seeing a new year.

If your child can handle this task, it’s another great way to get exercise while making money doing it.

46. Mow Lawns

This is a classic way of generating income, not to mention a great workout!

47. Collect and Sell Eggs

This one requires a little more maintenance as your child would have to maintain the chickens in order to collect the eggs. Nonetheless, there a great potential for profit!

Eggs could be sold at a Farmer’s market, or just marketed locally through word of mouth.

48. Sell Flowers

If your child has a green thumb and a knack for arranging floral, they may be able to sell flowers for the various holidays and events throughout the year.

People get busy with work, kids, and other issues that can come up in life. However, they still know and want to show appreciation for their loved ones on holidays.

If your child is in the right place at the right time, they could make a killing.

49. Sell Glow Sticks

Glow Sticks

If your child has an entrepreneurial spirit then this is a great seasonal money making opportunity for them. Your child can buy glow sticks for cheap when they are on sale and sell them at major events like the Fourth of July or Halloween.

50. Tutor Others

Have your child become a tutor for kids in their class that struggle in the things that your child excels in.

Is your child really good at math or can he or she churn out beautiful papers? If so, this is a great way to make cash, practice communication skills, and help others.

51. Create a YouTube Channel

It is amazing how many kids are making money on Youtube these days. If you like making videos and can be consistent, this can be not only a fun hobby but a way to make some money as well.

52. Sell Your Photos

Do you like taking pictures with your phone? Do you have an eye for getting the perfect shot?

Well, there are actually sites out there like iStock and Shutterstock that will pay for photographs for the their stock photography library.

53. Get a Paper Route

Although the newspaper is not as common as it used to be, this is still a way to make some extra cash as a kid.

You can deliver papers early in the morning, which makes this a good option if you are still in school and cant work a job during the day. Check with your local newspaper to see what the requirements are to get started.

There are even online tutoring gigs available that help address any transportation hurdles.

Summary

The options for making money as a kid are plentiful, especially in this day and age. Making extra money doesn’t have to mean slaving away working at a minimum wage job that your kid doesn’t like.

Having a little bit of creative thought and knowing their natural talents cannot only prove lucrative for your child but can help them learn new skills and hone their talents as well.

  1. Go to an arcade. Sometimes they have money as a prize in the key pushing thing.

    • Sorry, kid. That’s probably not gonna happen. ????‍♂️

      • I’m a 10 year-old girl and want to earn money fast to buy my bff some Christmas gifts (she’s poor) because she doesn’t get too many due to money problems. I always buy her 3 gifts. I always save up all my money, and I did the same this year. But, I don’t quite have enough for her gifts this year. I saw this and checked it out. But only a few ideas helped, like selling crafts (I’m very creative), pet care services (I love animals and plan to be a vet), and selling flowers. But, even though only 3 worked, I found this very useful. I have made my own business with many sales and services such as art, DIY’s, and many more. I named it Tori’s Treats. To buy a craft, its $1.00, Pet care is $5.50 per hour, flowers are $2.00 per bundle, $0.50 for a DIY, and more. Thank you so much. Right now it is only going on in my neighborhood, but I soon plan to bring it out throughout my city (Mesa).

        • It sounds like you are on the right track. I hope you will be able to get nice gifts for your friend.

        • I am trying to raise money for my birthday because I want a $1000 dollar laptop, but I might need to pay for some of it. I like these ideas, but… I have one problem: I don’t live in a neighborhood. My parents won’t allow me to have an allowance. Plus, I don’t get money for my grades or my chores. I can’t sell anything because my mom absolutely HATES EBay, and I can’t have a yard sale because nobody will come. Please help me.

          • Could you babysit for others? Or, if you are artistic, maybe you could paint, draw, or create art that could be displayed in a business in town and listed for sale?
            These are just a couple of ideas. They may not work for your situation, but I encourage you not to give up. Keep thinking of ways you could create things or provide services to earn your own money. We also have a few other posts on our site that might help you. Check them out and I wish you luck finding ways to make your own money. 🙂

          • This is just like me. I live in a neighborhood but my mom won’t let me sell anything.

          • Try mercari. You just take a picture write a description and once someone buys you ship it to them and you get your money. I’ve made over a 1000 dollars on mercari I recommend it. Good luck!

          • You could teach people how to play games on fivver or you could write books and sell them.

          • Lots of these ideas would help me and my friends buy a she shed

          • Use Inbox dollars to take surveys. Its not ideal, but you will get some money.

          • I am 12 years old and I’ve been wanting to box for quite a while, but boxing is very expensive. So I did some of the things on the list, such as mow lawns, and clean neighbors Windows in almost there but I’ll have to wait a while because of the covid-19. Thank you for all you help!

          • wash your parents car x

          • So you live in the country. I live in the city, so I’m not sure. If you have any younger siblings, maybe you could talk to them about tutoring. If your parents will allow you, you could do extra chores for specific pay. Like something your parents have been avoiding.

          • Maybe sit down and talk to your parents and explain to them your situation and that you feel that maybe you can get chore money or something?

        • Same, I’m ten years old to and I want to help my family by making money but only a few of these ideas worked for me because i have a strict mother ,but they were very helpful I’m betting to 13,14, and 15 year olds.

          • I have many business ideas of my own and I can’t do any of them cause I am not allowed to go not even a mile away from my neighborhood and some of these ideas would work for me too I just don’t have the resourses

        • You could start a cleaning business. Cleaning businesses can go to twenty dollars per hour. You could make easy money like that.

        • WOW! That’s amazing!

        • AWWWW your soo kind and we need more people like you in this world and may god bless your loving soul!

    • Hello, I am only ten and my family, or dad, lost his job. We might be moving out into the country side and I will lose a lot of things. My mum won’t let me do this stuff. Are there any other ways to help my family?
      Thanks

      • I applaud you for wanting to help when you are so young! You have a beautiful heart! To answer your question, there are lots of different ways you can still help your family. You can help out around the house and even help prepare inexpensive meals. We have a post about it on our website. Also, help your folks find food and other coupons to save money in their budget by using our posts about coupons.
        We also have lot of posts about ways kids and teens can make money. Don’t forget the possibility of having your folks rent out a room in their home through airbnb. We have posts about that which might also help. I hope one or two of these ideas works for you and your family.

          • My kids need money

      • If you are losing stuff, why don’t you sell it?

        • She said her mom will not let her do stuff, so maybe she will not let her sell stuff!!!!

      • You could do lemonade stands or clean other people houses.

    • Don’t catch and sell lizards this is illegal in some states. One time I did this and it died a cruel death, it would not eat. DONT DO THIS

      • Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We have updated the article accordingly.

    • Hi! I’m trying to save up for a phone that is $100.00 . I want to make money fast! They’re selling out, and I want to do the online surveys, but my dad doesn’t trust them. I have to stay at home for Corona, but I need ideas. I can’t sell anything online. I want to do something unique . I am only 11 years old. Pls pls pls pls help me

      • I am 12 and I am saving up for an iphone 7 beccause my phone is really old. I like your ideas but I don’t live in a place with lots of people and I don’t have much stuff to sell. I like grdening but my parents are way overprotective. I am not alloweed to go to other people’s houses so I ccan’t do much. Theres also the Covid thing. What can I do? I really need the money fast.

    • Arcades take more money than they give; that’s how they make money.

    • I’m trying to get money so i can buy a couple of diecast 1:18 scale model cars so i can play with.

    • I want to dog walk, but not aloud around the neighborhood at all, or my parents would get really mad at me. How can I dog walk like this?

    • Hi I am 12 years old and I am an entrepreneur and I am always looking for ways to make money so thank you for these ideas they were very helpful but some of the things were basically the same

  2. I thought it said for kids? Who is going to trust a freaking 5 year old to change the oil on a car or paint a fence?

    • Well, a kid (or a child) could be a teenager as old as 17. At that age, with the right teaching, he or she might be able to change the oil on a car or paint a fence. But here’s the question. Why would someone think it’s OK to put a 5 year old to work? Teaching them by assigning light household chores is one thing, but skill level and age appropriate need to be kept in mind.

    • I would do it and I’m 11. I probably have more education than you. I know more than you think.

      • Good for you, Lauryn! There are many kids who are very capable. Depending on age and what they have been taught, they can do lots of things.

      • That’s rude. The people that make websites are very intelligent, as they do have to know how to make a website. For you not to know the work that goes into making websites, forums, jobs, ect., I would think you’re dumb based on the amount of ignorance and rudeness you have.

        Have a good day!????

        • I could be wrong, but I believe she is responding to another reader’s comment (Jeff). Kids are not always given credit for how much they know, so it is quite possible for kids to make money doing some of these. I think some of them are more appropriate for teenagers, but some can be done by younger children as well.

      • Also, not to spam ,but changing car oil is harder than you think, and he said 5 not 11, if you can read. But, a lot of people wouldn’t even trust a 15 year old to change their car oil let alone an 11 year old. I would really like to test your intelligence, even when it comes to finding the oil or even the engine.

        • I believe there are probably some 11 year old’s that could do it. I am sure not all of them could, but if they practiced doing it with adult supervision, and are very responsible, it might be possible. I think the point is that we shouldn’t discredit kids. There are lots of things they can do and some of them could be done to earn money.

          • I’m an 11 year old girl, and I change my next door neighbor’s oil all the time.

          • That’s terrific! I bet they really appreciate your help! It sound like you are shaping up to be a very capable young person!

        • I am sorry but this person is trying to help other people and you are challenging that by insulting them you have a point but do not express it in such unkind way people should be more dignified than this

        • I know how to change the oil on a car and I’m basically 12. I think people would trust me with changing the oil on their car.

    • I know, or how about install a fence! I am 11 and I can’t install a fence or change car oil!

    • I don’t think she meant it for a 5 year old. And also, she didn’t say what age you have to be, just if you are responsible enough, and have your parent permission.

    • For example, you could walk friends dogs. Doesn’t matter if it’s your moms friend’s dog, your dads, siblings, it’s just an idea. Good luck!

      Ah. I think it’s time to go back to second grad, because you clearly don’t know what your doing.

  3. When I was 10, I did many of the things on this list for a few bucks. But, I also taught martial arts, and basic self-defense (younger and older alike) as well as math and science – mainly to older kids (I was good at that). Instead of money, though, I would ask the other kids to teach me about English-writing because I was horrible at that. This is a great list. ????

    • Well, it seems you aren’t horrible at it now. You must have learned quickly. Good job in bartering to get what you needed and help others at the same time. 🙂

    • I’m 10 and trying to save up. But my mom is very protective. Does anyone know any ideas

      • Try this…

        Grab a pencil/pen and paper, and sit down with your mom. Explain to her that you would like to make some money, but you want to do it in a way that is responsible. Ask her to help you make a list of chores or tasks that you can do around the house. Once you have done that, try to compromise on a price for each one. Throughout the next few months, you can do some of the chores whenever you need to make some extra money. At the end of the week, collect your payment. Continue to save up and be responsible with your money.

  4. Wow! Thanks for the tips. I’m in the fourth grade.

    • I’m glad this post was helpful to you. I hope you make lots of money as a kid and continue to have success into adulthood! Starting young is one of the keys to future wealth.

  5. I’m a 12-year-old and another good idea is getting into stocks. I’ve earned about 75 dollars after putting about 40 dollars into different penny stocks. Sure, you may not get as much exercise doing it, but that is no problem for me as I’m on my middle school football team. And it isn’t time-consuming at all. You could trade your stocks in minutes for a couple cents of profit and gradually earn money.

    • Yes, that is another way. It’s best to have the support of a parent or guardian, but it is another way to grow wealth as a kid. Thanks for your comments.

  6. Catching lizards or wild animals is technically not good for the animal as well as that the animal could carry diseases. They could transfer to humans and in some states it is also illegal to catch wild animals! Catching wild animals and selling them is definitely not the way to go. It also limits the amount of animals in the wild. For the animal, IT IS NOT GOOD to domesticate wild animals that deserve a good life. The fact is that humans are animals, but we don’t want to see ourselves as animals, but we are.

    • Yes, they are wild animals. Anyone considering it could check about local or state laws that may prohibit it before doing so. That is a good point.

    • I totally agree! This should not be on the list.

    • Yeah, that is what I was thinking but I mean it’s not good for the animal but it was a good thought! I am 13 and this really helps thanks for all the smart ideas!!!

  7. I’m just gonna be straight up right now, I’m only 12 and am looking for a way to get some extra money. I’ve been saving up for a few months to get MALWAREBYTES premium for my dad’s computer so I can play my favorite game again. We’re pretty broke and I have protective parents, so even if I could, my parents wouldn’t let me do most anything to earn money. One of the only things I could do is a bake sale/garage sale, and even then my parents have already said no. My family and friends say I’m a pretty good artist, especially for my age, so I need some help from an outside source. Could I possibly make money selling drawings/sketches, or maybe doing face painting?
    Thanks!

    (P.S: I know I’m weird, don’t judge me please. ????)

    • Those are some good ideas. Perhaps you could enter some art contests to help you get started? Talk to churches and other organizations about doing face painting for their events for a small fee or for donations.

    • You aren’t weird, my parents are the same way. Accept, I’m 11, I LOVE sketching! I can’t even have a phone ’till I’m 16! But I do have 1 suggestion, since you’re older, maybe you have a phone, IPad, or computer. In that case Poshmark is a good way to sell your outgrown chlothes, shoes, jackets, or even things that you don’t need and/or want anymore! Unfortunately, I am not allowed, (#i_will_be_living_in_a_box_until_i_am_sixteen) but my parents have made over $500 in just a month! Enjoy!

    • I think doing that is a great idea

  8. I’m 12, and I find that another thing you could do is sell certain things at school. A lot of kids will buy your stuff! Especially if they don’t have it there. Just make sure your school is okay with selling things so you don’t get into any trouble.

    • Of course, you also want to make sure that “stuff” is legit – in other words, nothing that you are selling will land you in hot water with the authorities. The last thing you want is to get in trouble with the law. Also, do your parents know you are doing this? They might not be ok with it, especially if you are taking a loss on what you are selling just to get cash. It’s best to get their blessing first. Are you also considering the parents of the kids who are your customers? They might object to their own kids buying your stuff, even at a discount.
      I’m not trying to rain on your parade. I just want to make sure you don’t get yourself into trouble while you are trying to make money.

  9. Selling glow sticks is not a good idea. Many small things like that come in packages and are illegal to sell individually.

    • That is true. It’s best to check that out before breaking up bulk items to sell individually.

  10. I am 11 and I live in a very small town with not a lot of opportunities to make money. I also do not have a lot of talents. I do not have any pocket money, and I would like to have some. Please help!

    • Well, you might be able to try some of the ideas in this post. Also, we have some other posts that may help about how kids and teens can sell money. There are even posts about recycling pop can tabs or paper to make money.

      I wish you luck in your money making efforts and applaud you for trying to make and manage your money when you are young. 🙂

  11. I found this list helpful. However, I am quite busy, and my mom is protective of me, and rightfully so. I need to earn money so I can get a fence and get a dog. But, I can’t go anywhere, nor can I do anything from the house. There are no lizards in my neighborhood, and I am afraid I cannot tutor as I am home-schooled. I have tried to make and sell sewing creations, but no one will really buy it because I am a kid.

    • That sounds like a tough spot to be in. But, don’t give up. I encourage you to keep looking for something you can do that will fit your situation and help you make extra money. We have some additional posts you might find helpful about how kids or teens can make money. Be sure to check them out.

      Since I do not know your age, I do not know for sure if any of these ideas will work for you. But the key thing is not to give up. We have lots of other posts about how to make money in general. So, if none of the other ideas work, check out some of the other money making posts on our site also. Good luck!

    • I, too tried selling sewing items. Most people won’t really buy them in person; I recommend asking your mom if she has Facebook and ask her to set up a market for your items. You can also try selling them to family members, or family friends. I hope this helps. 😀

  12. My name is Emily. I’m 13 years old. My sister and I really want a puppy. I thought about a few ways, like setting up a lemonade stand or just doing really cool, great crafts and setting up a stand to sell them around our neighborhood. Can anyone think of any other cool, interesting ways for you to help my sister and I?

    • Well, you could try some of the ideas in this post. We have a few other’s on our site that might help as well. Be sure to check them all out.

      Of course, since you mentioned that you are 13, some of these might not work for you until you are a bit older. Still, others on each post are probably do-able. Good luck! I hope you are able to figure something out and get your puppy! 🙂

  13. Hello my name is Itumeleng. I want to know how to make quick money.

    • Well, check out our posts to see if you can find something that works for you. Good luck.

  14. I am looking for easy, but useful, ways to stop homelessness. There are millions around the world, so why don’t we start now to help. I didn’t realise how much this meant to me until I kept on seeing them. I know we can’t help everyone in the world, but I am willing to take away my afternoons to work, or help someone to help them. I have many talents and think I could really help.
    My ideas are: a slime sale, selling lemonade, a singing contest (just for fun), watching sports, washing cars, grooming animals, and so much more. This site has helped me very much. Thank you. You don’t know how much that meant for me.

  15. I am a preteen looking for a way to save the homeless. I know there are millions out there, but why not start now. I am willing to do anything for this idea. This site has helped me so much and I am ready to do what it takes. My Ideas are: car washes, fashion shows, watching sports, selling slime, lemonade stands, garage sales, grooming animals, babysitting, and even more. Please give me some pointers, pray, and maybe give a donation (My parents don’t know yet, but my heart can’t wait any longer).

    • If you haven’t told your parents yet, you should probably let them know of your passion for helping the homeless. They might have some good ideas to help as well as other valuable information. Good luck!

    • Yeah, I live in Oklahoma and there are lots of homeless people all around. They line the bridges and barely have anything when it rains. Somebody needs to really help these people. When I see them I try to give them water when it is hot but sometimes I don’t have any money for that.

  16. Hi, I’m 11 and I have really protective parents. They won’t even let me ride my bike around my neighborhood! I was wondering if there are any ways that I could make lots of money(for my friend who is going through a lot) that don’t involve, really selling around the neighborhood? Thanks and great list by the way! 🙂

    • In addition to this post we have others, such as survey sites for kids. We also have some posts on how teens can make money, although you might be too young yet for some of those. Check them out to see if some of them work for you or give you some ideas that might help. I think it’s great that you want to help your friend. Good luck!

  17. I’m only 12, and I don’t think my parents would let me do any of this. I used to have a slime company with my best friend, and we made $60 in only 2 days! But we quit it a while ago because nobody likes slime anymore. I really want to make money again and do something at home often, instead of sitting on the couch watching TV. Do you have any ideas?

    • Sure! We have lots of posts on our website about how kids and teens can make money. Check out a few of them and see if there are some ideas that will work for you. I hope you find something you like to do that will help you earn some money. Good luck!

  18. I want a used Porsche Boxster for $15000 in good condition and I am needing a good car. I don’t want anything else, but I am not good with kids and I have no neighborhood and no allowance. What should I sell and how?

    The car is about to sell and I need about $14k.

    • There are lots of other ways to make money as a kid or teen and we have several posts about it on this site. Keep in mind, however, that having enough money to buy a sports car isn’t the only thing you should consider.I don’t mean to squish your dreams, but parts and upkeep can be more expensive as well as insurance for that type of car. You might need to start off with one that is lower in price and gets decent gas mileage. Then, save and work up to the car of your dreams.

  19. I think I might just want to do weed pulling – just an idea. It’s easy and it makes money. ????????????

    • That’s one idea. Although, in some places at this time of year, there aren’t a whole lot of weeds to pull. However, spring is coming, so I hope you are able to pull away and make some extra cash! Thanks for your comments!

  20. Like zoinks, man. This is a great list.

  21. I’m 11 and my parents are starting to worry about money more than they usually do. I’m a little worried. My siblings are young and don’t get the idea of how valuable money really is so I wanted to raise money. we have a lot of junk in our house so, I think we’ll have a yard sale. Thank you so much!

    • It’s great that you want to help out your family. A yard sale is a good way to eliminate clutter and make some extra money for you to do just that. Of course, it’s probably a good idea to run it by your parents first to make sure they are ok with it. Good luck!

  22. I’m a 12 year old girl in grade 7 and I need a laptop for grade 8. The problem is that my family is kinda poor and cannot afford it. I’m not really good when talking to people and I need an idea of what else I could do. Please help!

    • You can try some of the ideas in this post. Also, we have a post about ways you can get strangers to give you money and ways to get free or cheap laptops. There are also more posts about how to make money as a kid. Check them out to see if you can use the ideas to get what you need. Good luck!

  23. Thank you so much! This helped a lot! I am only 12 years old so I’m kind of limited on what I can do on this list, but it was still very helpful. I am very into art and the supplies required for my projects are very expensive.

    • I’m glad you found it helpful. We do have other posts on this site you might be able to use as well. They are about additional ways kids and teens can make money.

  24. I am an 11 year old and I found some of this helpful. I really want to watch, groom, and bathe pets, but their is one problem. I don’t know many people with pets that I can ride my bike to get to. But most of this stuff is very helpful! I just feel like it should include more fun jobs and not selling things because nobody comes down my street.

    • That’s understandable. Everyone’s circumstances are different and not everyone has the same opportunities or lives in the same circumstances. What works for one kid may not work for another. We have other posts on this site about ways kids and teens can make money. Be sure to check them all out in case you find others that might work better for you. Good luck!

  25. This list is amazing! I am 12, and my street has many pet owners busy with their kids. The pet ideas are great! I’m also very creative and some of my friends want to buy some of my art and jewelry! This list will help me fund a new phone! Thanks for all the good ideas!

    • That’s great! We’re glad to help. Good luck!

  26. Hi, my name is Rachel and this was very helpful. I am 11 years old and I think I’m going to groom and wash pets, paint fences, and wash cars. Thanks for the ideas. ????????

    • Your welcome, rachel. I hope you are successful!

  27. I have a small apartment. Help, please.

    • Try using some of the ways in this post to make money. In addition, we have other posts about ways kids and teens can make money, as well as adults, doing work at home or online. Check them out and good luck!

  28. Well, I’m 11 years old and I visited this website because I broke my phone. The laptop that I am typing on is slow and nearly 5 years old! Here’s some information about my phone. Basically, the digitizer is broken, and when I Googled the cost to get it fixed, I found out that without Apple Care it can cost nearly $500. I’m trying to get my phone fixed, but I don’t believe that any of these ideas will work. Do you have any suggestions for me? My neighborhood is filled with cats and dogs, so anything under the category of pets would be helpful, but at this point, anything will help.

    • Anastasia, we do have some other posts on our site for kids and teens to make money. Make sure you check them out too to see if you can make money to get your phone quicker. Good luck!

  29. I am a 12 year old boy and I would like ideas to make fast money!

    • Check out the ideas in the post, then. We also have more posts on how teens and kids can make money so be sure to check those out as well. 🙂

  30. I could do all these for my parents and get paid in hugs.

    • It’s true that not all parents are going to give you money to do chores. At least they are showing you their love and affection.

  31. I’m trying to raise $2,800.00 for a school trip in the 8th grade to go to Washington D.C. and New York. This really helped me make a list of jobs I can do over the summer. I also guess it’s a good thing I’m artistically talented, or at least that’s what every one tells me. Thank you!

    • I’m glad it’s helping you! 🙂

  32. I’m trying to raise money for a play I want to make so I think I’ll do a garage sale and be a pet sitter. Thanks for making this post. I think it’s gonna help.

    • I’m glad we could help you out. Good luck with your money making efforts and your play! Also, you might be able to film it and use it as a money maker too! That could help you fund future projects. 🙂

  33. I’m 11 years old and trying to buy a dog, but I have to save up $1395. I’m not artistic, and I can’t sell anything on eBay because my mom won’t let me. I can’t babysit, because I don’t live by any little kids. So what should I do?

    • We actually have more than one post about ways kids and teens can make money. Check them all out because there are options other than those you mentioned. For instance, we have a post about survey sites for kids that might help you out.

      At the same time, $1,395 for one dog sounds like a lot of money. I’m not trying to squish your dreams of dog ownership, but keep in mind it also takes money for food and other pet supplies. Also, what happens to that expensive pet if you decide later that pet ownership is not for you? These are just some things to consider before spending such a large amount of money on a pet. Keep in mind, you could also rescue a dog that is in danger of being put down. 🙁

      • Oh my gosh so true there are so many dogs that are going to be put down. Save one of them. We have a dog named Dally that we saved from a kill shelter. She is the best dog we have ever had i love her so much!!!!

      • You should have a pet related company so that you can get the required background knowledge you need.

  34. Thanks so much for this article! I made 34 dollars off of these absolutely outstanding tips. Thanks!

    -Sophia

    • That’s great to hear!

  35. Hi, I’m 12 years old and my school’s computer broke. It is $280 to fix it, and my mom works a very low salary job. She is also very overprotective. When I showed her the paper, she got kind of mad, and I could see that she was worried that she couldn’t pay for it. I don’t know if she will let me do any of these things to help her pay the fee. Is there anything else that I could possibly do?

    • We actually have a couple of other posts on our site about ways kids and teens can make money. Be sure to check them all out in case one or two of them work for your situation. Good luck!

  36. I’m 10, but almost 11 and I love to design clothes. I like making prints for the clothes, but I can’t draw. So, how am I going to do any of this? I get very good grades, but I’m not old enough to tutor. What am I going to do?

    • There are other ways to make money. Check out the links in this post as well as some of our other posts about ways kids and teens can make money. For example, maybe you could babysit or pet sit. Or, you could do yard work, babysit, or clean for other people. There are lots of ways you could make money. 🙂

  37. Hello. I’m probably a late commenter, but I’m 13 and want to save up money to pay for a dream dog. The dog is about $1,500, but I’m willing to work for it. The only problem is, I’m really shy and a lot of these ways to earn money involve interaction among neighbors. I know it isn’t bad, but if my mother doesn’t pay me for doing chores and I don’t want to do things like changing oil or painting a fence, what do you suggest? I was wondering If you have any other ideas that involved animals? Maybe then I could become more responsible with animals and at the same time prove to my parents that I am ready to be a dog mom.
    Thank you! 🙂

    • Part of your success depends on you getting past your shyness. Just about any task or job that you can get paid for will require some level of interaction with other people and adults. However, a great idea to show you are responsible with animals is to offer your services as a pet sitter. You could do this by taking care of animals within your customer’s own home or your own, if both they and your parents are ok with it. You could also be a dog walker.
      I wouldn’t do you justice if I didn’t mention that $1,500 is an awfully lot to spend on a pet, especially if it’s your first pet. Perhaps you could go to a local shelter and adopt a kitten first or even a puppy. It might not be your dream dog, but you’d be saving a life. You also have years ahead of you to get your dream dog. No matter what you decide to do, I wish you luck!

  38. Thank you so much! This is really going to help me achieve my goal, and yes I understand $1,500 is a ton of money for a pet. I will go and check out shelters as well thanks to your point on saving lives; maybe I could find a shelter that has my dream pet, or just unexpectedly fall in love with a different dog. Anyway, Thanks again! 🙂

    • You’re welcome! I hope you do find the pet of your dreams and maybe save some money along the way!

  39. There are some great ideas, but some others are not, such as selling glow sticks. I am exited to try out some of these ideas this summer.

    • That’s great. I hope you can make some money. 🙂

  40. Deacon, Do you have to reply to everyone? Just be silent.

    • First, it is my website and therefore my decision whether or not to reply to any comments that are made.

      Second, I respond to nearly all comments, although there are a few from time to time that I simply approve and post without a return reply – but not this one! 🙂

  41. I’m an 11 year old boy. I really want to save up money to get some type of pet because I always feel lonely. I really would like to try cat sitting my friend’s cats. Thank you for the idea. ????????

    • As you save for a pet, keep in mind that the cost to get a pet doesn’t have to be hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You could look at a shelter in your area. You can sometimes get a pet there for the cost of shots and spaying or neutering. At the same time, you may be saving a life.

      Keep in mind your pet costs won’t end once you purchase the animal. You still have to have food and other items for it. Also, as you look for ways to make money, be sure to check out our other posts on ways kids and teens can make money. Good luck and I hope you are able to get a pet!

  42. I’m a 10 year old girl. I want to get money fast to buy my family gifts for Christmas. I have money saved, but just not enough. I am a very shy girl. Thank you for your help.

    • I hope a couple of these ideas work for you! It’s great that you are trying to earn money to do something nice for those you love.

  43. Me and my cousin need money for our rent. We also have plans for our future, but we knew we had to have money so we decided to work. It was the only solution. I am going to wash cars (if you’re interested, I live on Cheyenne) and do other offers and it’s the same with my cousin.

    • Good for you that you are looking for ways to make money for both now and for your future. I hope you are successful and have good luck in all that you do!

  44. Hey, I’m twelve, and I’m having problems with making money. My mom is super strict, not allowing me to go into other people’s houses and not past our street. We live in a big city, so I can’t set up a lemonade stand and my street is also super getto. Please help me! ????

    • It sounds like your mom is trying to protect you and in this day and age I don’t blame her. However, I understand your frustration with wanting to make some money of your own. Maybe she would let you babysit for people she knows well? Or, perhaps if she supervises you could do some surveys online? We have a post about that plus other posts on our site about additional ways kids and teens can make money. Be sure to check them out and good luck! 🙂

  45. I am a 10 year old boy and I don’t make that much money. I’m not poor, it’s just that I can’t babysit or do any pet care. I can’t paint other people’s houses. I don’t live in a neighborhood.

    • It sounds like your situation would make it harder to make money. We do have other posts on this site about ways kids and teens can make money. Be sure to check them all out in case one either works for you or inspires another idea for you to try. Good luck!

  46. I am 11 and I’ve tried doing baking for a family party. Absolutely no one had one of my things. They ate everyone else’s creations, but none of mine. Help me please!

    • Maybe baking is not for you. However, if you think it is, don’t give up right away. Even the greatest bakers and cooks have to perfect their dishes and everyone is new to cooking at one point or another. Maybe you should try just a couple of foods out on your own immediate family first, or on friends. Then, once you have made your recipes a couple of times and made changes to improve them, it might be time to introduce them to others. Good luck!

  47. I am 7 years old and I cannot do any of the stuff listed. It’s either that I am not old enough or nobody needs the services on the list. Anyway, my goal is about $2,500 USD for a computer, and I will buy the components and build it because most companies don’t put in enough RAM. Also, most of these jobs are “earn $10 in a month” kind of stuff, so please help.

  48. I want to be a professional gamer and need to find the right job to get at least $700. I know it’s a lot, but does anyone have any ideas for me? I’ll do anything! :]

    • They should be proud of you just for wanting to help. We have several posts on this site about ways kids and teens can make money. Be sure to check them out for more ideas you can use. Good luck!

  51. I want to earn money to help my mom buy our school supplies because I saw her crying and I felt so bad, so I want to help out. I love doing crafts, baking, and I have some cloth I don’t like that I could sell.

  56. I’m an 11 year old girl who needs to raise 2,500 in two years for my schools super cool field trip to D.C, Boston, And New York. My mom said its too expensive for her to pay so i’m going to try to babysit children and pets (Child 5-8 4.50 per hour —> Child 0-4 6.50 hour) (Pets 8.50 per hour).

    • Sounds like you have a good plan! You can check out some of the other options in this article to make some extra money on top of that! Best of luck!

  57. Hi, I am 12 and the things on your list great but I can’t do most of them and the ones that I can do I might lose money. Paint is expensive and I don’t have anyone that needs a painted fence. I can paint and make things but nobody wants to buy things from a kid. Selling things at my school is illegal so help me, what can I do, do you have any ideas.

    • You can maybe do the dishes at home or mow your lawn or pull the weeds? Hey I’m stuck too.

    • You could walk dogs, mow lawns, and do other garden things.

  58. I am saving up for airpod pros and they are so expensive so I wanted to raise money for them. I need 240 and this has really helped, I don’t know about babysitting or grocery. I can’t drive and I’m a kid but besides that great work

  61. I’m trying to earn money secretly so I can buy my family gifts for birthdays and stuff. Do you have any ideas for me. By the way I’m 14 years old.

  62. Hi. I’m a 14 year old girl whose parents are very very protective, almost helicopter-y. I am an artist and I do digital art in sketches, lined, colored, and semi-realistic. I also do traditional art in painting, sketching, and lined with marker all in cartoon and semi-realistic. I can also do face painting. I also do creative writing and I design characters. Right now I’m trying to save up money for a cosplay so I can go to a local convention but the problem is, my cosplay is well over 100 dollars and my parents only give me an allowance of two dollars. Would there be any other ways besides garage sales? I also can’t cook for the life of me so a bake sale is a no. Please and thanks!

    • Paint characters on peoples faces and charge at least $4.00 depending on how hard it is too draw.

  63. I am looking for 500$ to buy 200 Rubik’s cubes for my math teacher, who is interested in Rubik’s cube mosaics. I need a way to earn that much in 7 days, and I have no experience or tools whatsoever. I am good at drawing but I don’t have a tablet and I suck at drawing on a computer.

    • you could make one piece of art, then scan it to have many copies.

  64. I am 13 years old and i tried everything and nothing worked but selling candy at school has been helping a lot

  65. I want to win $1000 because i love soccer and i could buy 100 balls for my soccer team.

  67. If I was to make flyers, should I put my personal email on or make a email for my company? Also, I am 10, so I am quite limited. No phone yet.

    • It might be good idea to make a company email that you check once a day. If you don’t have a phone, you could a laptop or tablet if you have one.

  68. I had a original plan to dog walk but because of Coronavirus I do not think that I would make that much money and people would not trust me. I want to save up for a $1000 dollar laptop for middle school but all of my good ideas have dropped because of Coronavirus. I need help plz.

    PS. I am in 5th grade

  69. Nobody would want a kid installing a fence, clean gutters because they are way to high and not every kid has an electronic to do instagram.

  70. I want to make my business a real thing but I don’t have any idea on how to. I also want to make a website for my business to get the word out. Do you have any websites that could help me make one?

  71. Hi I’m someone (I can’t post my name but I am 10 years old.) and I’m saving up for an Xbox Series X ($500 or more) and I’m kinda shy so cleaning and selling stuff is something I don’t really like.
    I have a question to, there are a lot of people that make videos about getting money as a kid online, but how do the kids even get the money? They don’t have a credit card/debit card and if they are under 13 then they can’t make a paypal account. I’m hoping you can answer my question. Thanks for trying to help kids get money.

    • Yeah, I agree….

  72. Well, I guess this is somewhat helpful, but it wont work for what I need. I need $200.00 ASAP. I was wondering if there was say… a faster way to earn money.

  73. This helped a lot and I earned $250

    • I used to live in a neighborhood that we sometimes went to for like 30 minutes at a time. I had a friend there, and wanted to walk dogs with her. My parents don’t like me going anywhere that is not my friend’s house, or our old house. What do I do?

  74. I’m earning up to get a puppy that cost $1,898 and I want to make money asap. But if I do some of these I might get the puppy I wanted at first which cost $3,648.I know it’s a lot of money but thanks to this website I think it might be possible!!

    • That’s awesome! I hope your puppy is adorable.

  75. I’m 12 years old and I’m saving up for a $50 graphics tablet, I really want to try these out by selling some art online. Do people have any programs or websites that I can sell art on that is kid-friendly? Thanks.

  76. I am ten years old.I wanted to raise money for something kind of like a club. I made it not too long ago, and it is called, Lend A Paw. What we do is, we earn money, and with the money we earn that whole year. We buy dog and cat food, and send it to all of the Animal services that are running out of enough money to buy all of the animals food. So they don’t have to put them down. We do something different every year. Some times we send food and sometimes we send stuff like beds and other stuff like that. I would like to do all the stuff that you said, but I don’t live in a neighborhood, or really not very close to a city either. My parents wouldn’t let me baby sit, and there is nothing around here like lawn, or house work to do. I have a cousin that lives in a neighborhood, but he is a little rascal,and is only 6 years old. He has a brother that is 8 years old, but not someone who could really make much money. I am out of luck, and really need to make some money. My parents would not let me sell anything online. I am very artistic, and love doing crafts, and stuff. Once I painted a picture of my dogs, and my friends thought that we ordered it from a painter who painted our dogs. Do you have any ideas?

    • Hey Kalley,

      That is so awesome! I absolutely love the idea you have and I think that you’re super incredible for coming up with that and wanting to help people with the money that you make. I think what would be best for you is to share this list with your parents. Share your goals and see how they can help you. There may be some things that they personally aren’t comfortable with you doing, so you might want to ask them specially what they WILL allow you to do. If they won’t let you create accounts to sell stuff online, maybe you could ask if they could make the account for you to sell stuff. They might think that’s a little bit safer. I would definitely encourage you to talk to them and share this list to see what they will allow you to do! Keep up the great work and the super creative ideas! I hope that you can earn some money for the charity that you created! Best of luck!

  77. I need more money to buy a tech suit which could cost from $90 to $500 depending on the brand, but swimming is EXTREMLY important to me. none of these things work due to COVID-19, any good ideas?

  78. My name is Carla. I’m ten years old and I am looking for a way to make money so I can buy more hair styling products for my my business, Heavenly Hair-dos. I am already making enough money, but I need to find ways to advertise.

    Please help and THANKS!!!!

    • As long as your parents are alright with it, I would check out Facebook or Instagram or other social media for advertising!

  79. I’m saving up for something, and I want to earn money because I am impatient. Some of these things I would be able to do, but now I can’t be cause of covid-19. I also live in a apartment, so that can be a problem. What do you recomend?

  80. I am 14 and my little sister is 9. We really want a dog but our parents won’t let us because it costs too much to care for it with food, toys, vet visits, dog sitters when we travel, etc. I’m also leaving for college in four years and I’m the one who wants a dog the most and my parents don’t want to be stuck with the dog when my sister and I eventually leave in 8 years. We are trying to earn $600 in the next month to prove to our parents that we are dedicated to getting a dog, but with the COVID-19 we can’t work with our neighbors and our parents don’t let us sell stuff online. Are there any other ideas that we could do?

    • Maybe see if there is stuff that your parents will let you do around the house! And if you can show your parents how dedicated you are, maybe talk to them about how they could help you sell stuff online if they have the time. They might not feel like it’s the safest option, but they may feel more comfortable about it if they’re the ones who are helping you to manage it!

  81. I made a little list of all the possible chores I can do so I can get myself a birthday gift and I can also give some money to my family to pay for my school scholar soo Thanks!

  82. I am also stuck cause I want to by this £620 computer but I am limited to things I can do for money because of covid 19. Are the any jobs or things I could do that will not be affected by covid 19.

  83. I’m 11 years old and I´m trying to buy an iPhone but I can get jobs because of COVID-19. Please help!

  84. These ideas are sooo good I don’t know which one to choose 😁

  85. Hello! I’m an 11-year-old trying to make money to get guinea pigs. I have a twin that’s also striding to help collect money. However, we know they are hundreds of dollars and with this whole quarantine going on, we cant do 3/4 of the stuff. We can do chores but we won’t get a lot or any money if we do them. Our parents might help us pay off part of them but we can’t guarantee it. Any suggestions? (we cant do online surveys. I’m not sure about selling things online.)

    • From my experience, Guinea pigs are actually closer to being about $40 each at the most! Though getting the supplies for them can add to that cost. A lot of these things require the quarantine to be lifted, so during this time I would suggest talking to your parents and seeing what sort of jobs they may let you do and see if they can let you do things online if they can supervise or help create accounts!

  86. Thank you so much. I am 10 years old and I want a ferret and you helped me out.

  87. Thank you so much. I needed this a lot more than you could imagine. I found these super useful! 🙂

  88. So I might get a bank account and I’m pretty sure my dad isn’t going to give me 250 to put in there but I really want an Acer Chromebook 15 so I don’t have to keep using my school iPad to do things because I need to go on certain sites to do research and all like my teacher sent me a YouTube link for something on Call of the Wild and it was worth a decent amount of my grade even thought I’m really smart and I know this because my principal a few months be for the COVID-19 pulled kids out to review their iStep scores and I being a 6th grader having scores above that of an average high schooler in my town kinda says a lot but I had to watch the video then do a test but I couldn’t but anyways which one would you guys say would be best in a small town?

  89. I want to earn money but I don’t know how and all of these I can’t really do so I am stuck!! HELP!!!!

  90. thanks but I cant really do this because of the whole COVID-19 outbreak could you please give us some things to do at home :]

  92. Hi, I’m 11 years old, and I’m trying to save up £900 (I live in the UK)to get something I damaged fixed (I broke something my neighbours had, and it‘s SOO expensive!). I REALLY need money right away, but I can’t tell my parents what I’m saving up for! I need to get that money by August, so if you have any ideas,PLEASE reply A.S.A.P.! Thanks!!!

  93. I am 11 years old and I am saving up to buy a horse (that’s a lot of money btw) and I need money quick before it gets sold none of these ideas would work to my conditions and especially while covid-19 is around. I NEED MORE IDEAS.

    • I would talk with your parents and see what they might let you do. Since you can’t go out right now, you can see if there’s jobs they may let you do around the house or online!

      • thank you

    • Try online tutoring, you could get paid for tutoring younger kids.

  94. Me and my sisters want money so we can do usefull stuff with it. But we had zero dollars and did not know what to do so, we are hoping to do lots of these. What we are going to do with the money is donating it to the homeless, St. Jude’s hospital, people with cancer, and to buy my mother a gift for mother’s day. This really helps. Thank you Catherine Treme!

  95. I am saving up money to buy a pet for me and my brother, but we don’t live in an estate and I can’t really do much because of corona virus. What can I do?

    • Check out some of the ideas in the list and talk with your parents or guardians to see what they’re comfortable with. If you can’t get outside and do anything right now, there’s some options for things you can do online.

  96. I am an 11 year old girl and I wish to have a tablet, although I have a laptop, but I like Tablet more than a Laptop. I have decided to sell crafts but I don’t have cardboard that is needed. Please someone help me. Pretty Please!

    • Check out some of the ideas on this list to try and make money to try and get what you need!

      • Thankyou, but what can I select from the list. I don’t live in a country that I can select the other things in the list. If I wan’t to make my youtube channel, how would I get the money? I don’t have an ATM card. I don’t even get pocket money. Kindly help once more.

        • Most of the things on the site are geared towards the United States. I would highly suggest doing some googling to see if there’s an option available in your country for getting paid that’s not listed here!

  97. I am 12 . I want to make some money to buy my BFFs each a gift on their birthay, I usually do this every year from my allowance and the money I get for good grades, but this year can’t because I spent the money on a homless kid. Only the ones which involved social media were in my grasp, but I don’t live in a very developed country(Kenya) so I can’t arrange a yard sale cause no one will come or babysit cause no one trusts you with their baby. If I try selling stuff online, if someone from another country buys it , I won’t be able to ship it to them, so, please help.

    • Sell stuff in your neighborhood!

  98. I’m 11 and I can change a broken window and change a cars oil, but it’s hard.
