Making Money If You Are a Kid

How Can Kids Make Money?

Written by Madi Gaebler for Gaebler Ventures

Making money when you are a kid is easier than you think. There are many ways to make money if you are a kid. Here are some great ways for kids to make money.

All kids would love to have a little more money in their pocket to buy the things they've always wanted.

Many times, kids will even come up with large plans to make money that have too many responsibilities and, in the end, they give up.

So, the key is to start a business for yourself that is simple and that you know people will want.

You should definitely start a business that you will enjoy. If do what you love, you will love what you do...and you can make money at the same time!

If you are a kid, here are three great ideas on how you can make money. In the future, I might write some more articles on others ways kids can make money.

Starting a Lemonade Stand

On a hot summer day, everybody loves a glass of cold lemonade. The easiest thing you can do is to go to your nearest grocery store or convenience store and buy frozen or powdered lemonade. Powdered is cheaper, so you can make more money. Frozen costs more but it tastes better, so you might want to spend the extra money to get happier customers.

Make the lemonade and then set up your stand. This is very important to know. You must have a good location. If you live on a quiet street and do it in front of your house, you might find you don't get any customers. A much better place to be is at a train stop or a bus stop or on a busy street. Parks are also great, especially if there are events going on, such as a soccer game or other sport.

Sometimes, you can sell other things besides lemonade to make extra money. If you bake some cookies, for example, you can sell them to the delight of your customers.

How much should you charge? Start selling your lemonade for 50 cents a cup. If that doesn't work, you can lower your price. Of course, the price may vary based on where you live and even how hot it is on any given day. Also, the size of the cup and the quality of the cup can impact the price.

Don't forget to have a Tips jar, so people who want to give you extra money can. Put your money in a secure place, such as a box underneath your stand so the money will not blow away. Also, make sure you have change ready to give to your customers.

On a good day, believe it or not, you can make $100 or more running a lemonade stand. Not bad!

If you don't make $100 in a day, don't worry. Maybe you just need to try a new location, open up at a different time of day, or change your price.

Dog Walking

It is import not to attempt dog walking as a business if you are not comfortable with dogs. But if you love dogs, this can be a great way for a kid to make money.

To get a job walking somebody's dog, you need to let them know that you are available. Some ways to do include printed flyers or by simply knocking on their door. It's also smart to tell people to tell other people that you are available.

Usually, your customers will be on your block because people don't like to give their dogs to kids they don't know somehow. Always ask the owners to tell you as much as possible about their dog and its habits. It's very important that you get friendly with the dog, and it's smart to do your dog walking at the same time. Bringing a treat to the dog is a great way to develop a friendship with the dog.

You can charge $5 per walk if the walk is 30 minutes. If the owner wants you to walk the dog for an hour, you should charge $10 to $15.

The only downside to this business is dog poop. You have to be sure to bring a bag and clean up after the dog. Newspaper bags are perfect for this task.

Lawn Care

Lawn Care is a lot of work but pays off when its time for you to get paid. In order to run a lawn business you need materials. You should have a lawn mower and broom. Sometimes, the customer may offer for you to use their equipment. Once you've mowed the lawn, be sure to sweep up the grass clippings on the sidewalk.

Get Started To Day!!!

Once you make your plan, you have to stick to it if you actually want to make the money. Once you get your routine down, you won't have to do much more than actually doing the work.

It'll be great feeling to have money in your pocket and know that you earned it and won't have to beg your parents for money when you want to buy a drink, a piece of candy or a new song for your iPod.

    Madi Gaebler (writer of this article)
    To lilly h. To answer your question, yes, there are some laws that might prevent you from doing these businesses but they are not usually enforced. I have heard about lemonade stands and the like being shut down because a kid did not have a city permit. But that rarely happens. In general, the only time the police would act was if there were a complaint.

    Every internet page says the same things. you don't make enough in lemonade, most people don't trust you with there jobs...and I don't feel safe mowing someone elses lawn. Does anyone have different ideas? Thanks
  • Tommy posted on 2/16/2009

    K dude I don't feel safe with any of these jobs what if they they tell you to come in and it's a sunny day and they give you some lemonade and there's poison in it and the next day you died like what Amanda said anyone have different ideas?

  • lex posted on 2/20/2009

    Uh, this doesn't really help. I can't walk dogs because I'm at school and aftercare until 6 and then I eat and then it's dark. I can't open a lemonade stand because I'm not allowed to solicit in my neiborhood. I can't mow lawns because I'm too weak to push a mower. :( I'm thinking of making a snack stand at my aftercare center though so maybe that will take off. I also have an idea if you have a portable dvd player you could bring it to aftercare and charge admission to see a movie.

  • Allie posted on 3/13/2009
    Allie
    To get them to trust you, explain how good you are to your own dogs. Say I am very responsible and will take care of your dogs. You can also say that you want them to do two walks with you and the dogs so they can see you in action with your dog walking.

    IDEAS IDEAS IDEAS IDEAS IDEAS IDEAS: 1.)Create a personal catalog to show to friends, family, and other nieghborly people. The items for sale could be priced just a small portion cheaper so you will attract customers. 2.)House sit for family, friends or nieghbors. Do little things like checking on pets that stayed back, watering plants, etc. 3.)Do good in school to get money for good grades on your report card. 4.)Do chores around your own house to get paid by a parent if they allow you to do this. 5.)Don't beg parents for anything.Just offer to do chores for money and they will think that you are responsible and really want what you want. 6.)EXTRA:People posting comments really need to give out more ideas instead of complaints on how these don't work for them or how you really WANT(not NEED) this or you really WANT(not NEED) that.

  • Here's an Idea posted on 5/31/2009
    Here's an Idea
    Another way for kids to make money: Start a garbage business. Offer to take your neighbors' garbage to the road on garbage night and to put the cans back up where they belong after the garbage is picked up. You can probably try charging $5.00 per month, per neighbor. If you get several neighbors, it could add up. Have a car wash day and wash your neighbors' cars. Put fliers in your neighbors' mailboxes (just the neighbors' you know or your parents okay!) saying you will do odd yard jobs like sweep their walks and porches, rake leaves, mow lawns, shovel snow, whatever the case may be.

    Hey Guess Who, try just asking people in your neighborhood what you can do for them to make some money. That worked for me. If nobody in your neighborhood can afford to pay you for doing something, get on a bus and go to an area where they got some moolah. Ask the same question. Somebody will hire you to do somethin. You owe me, dude.

  • Timmy posted on 7/7/2009
    Timmy
    Andrew, in many cities you DO need to have a permit to sell lemonade, even if it's front of your house. But the thing is the police will hardly ever stop a kid's lemonade stand from operating. They don't mind a kid making a little money selling lemonade. But if a neighbor (or your dad) calls them up to say you don't have a permit, then they might have to shut you down. Don't let people who put down your ideas stop you. Just be confident in who you are and what you know you can do. I say Go For It!

In the spring and fall I went around trying to rake peoples lawns. I went to like 60 houses over the course of one month and I made only $25.00. It's sad, it's pathetic.

    Okay, so I'm 12, and I'm looking for a REAL steady flow of cash. To tell you the truth, odd jobs generally don't cut it for me. I don't want to make a measly little 5 dollars in the summer from a lemonade stand. Personally, I think real money making is generally reserved for adults, but you never know........
  • Guy who posted above me posted on 10/26/2009
    Guy who posted above me
    Maybe you should try to get your parents to buy a stock bond for you under their name. Then you could start making some SERIOUS CASH(If your smart with your money). I was reading in Fortune Magazine that one company makes about 10 million a year with Google adsense. What that basically is is you stick ads on your website, and Google will send you a check every month. You need to have your parents sign up under your name, because you need to enter your IRA or tax information or somthing. im 12.

    me and my friend tried to have a yard sale, didn't work. A book sale, 1 customer. 2 lemonade stands, one of them we got 6 dollars in like two hours and the other one didn't work. We tried to have a pet care business over the summer, the hand made fliers went to waste and the people that said that they would call, never called. I had a job, but I let my sister do it for a week and she wont let me have it back. Life sucks when you want to make money when you're a kid.

    There are some good ideas but in UAE it can be really hard. If anyone is looking for a really easy way just make a garage sale and you will earn hundreds. I earned $400 dollars from a garage sale in one day. You all should try it Also try selling sweets at school its easy and you get loads of money if you buy gum in packs and sell them seperately. Make sure its allowed before you try

    Okay some of these are good ways to make some $ but there are some other ways to make $$ that I think are better. I am going to start a home business, and I only just turned 13 in January. So, there is this site called Etsy, you sell HOMEMADE items there. Also, I take surveys from cashcrate.com, I made over $500 dollars a month on that site and you can join for free!

    I guess these are good idea's but my mom won't let me do dog walking, (she says people are not going to let a kid they don't know walk their dog). (Then again, i wouldn't let someone i don't know walk my dog sooo...). Also it's winter and almost EVERYONE'S lawn is covered in snow so i doubt i can mow lawn's. And as for the lemonade stand...i don't think people want lemonade in the winter.(And winter lasts a lot of month's where i live.) Besides the lemonade would probably turn into lemon-ice within about a half hour or so.

    ok so if u are uncomforatable with these jobs or if u are shy i might have some tips. You can do some work around your house. for example try doing some chores like doing your laundry(if you have siblings offer to do their luandry but not their "delicates") and you can probably charge from two to five bucks per load depending on how much there is.You can also try to clean around the house and make some extra$$$. If your house is completely spotless and does not need any cleaning whatsoever you can try helping your parents out with dinner you can help them cook maybe make them some breakfast from time to time. And if you have siblings try negotiating with them. if they are younger than you try helping them out with their homework or try tutoring them. your parents might pay you for that. you can also put your parents intrests to your advantage. like if your dad loves to go bike riding but never has time to work on his bike. have him teach you and maybe you can do it for him. He might pay you alot depending on how much he loves to bike. If your mom is usually busy in the evening, like i said try helping with dinner to make things go smoother if your old enough. and if you get more expireenced maybe you can cook/bake on your own. If your parents are really uptight about grades try getting them to pay you for your good grades(if you dont have good grades its best NOT to show them your report card unless it is required). If you have older siblings like me, you can try doing some work for them like cleaning their room(if its not a hazard to your health) and if they are old enough to have a car try negotiating with them so they can pay you some serious $$$ for washing their car weekly(sometimes your siblings have no idea what the value of money is) and if you dont know what your parents or siblings are like you shouldnt even be reading this go and have some bonding time with them so you know how to get some money out of them. lol

    Ok so you guys wanna know what to do during the winter. first of all people love to stay warm during the winter(who wouldnt?) and so try selling some homemade scarves and hats and if you dont know how to knit try taking some cheap lessons at your local craft store they are usually 15$ per class and maybe you can get ur parents to pay for them if you tell them about ur buisness(they might be surprised at ur independance). And if its cold enough try shoveling some driveways for neighbors or ur own house your parents will love you for that and ur neighbors will appreciate it to. You can also try some of the jobs at home i mentioned in my last comment. i really hope this helps bye!

    These r great ways 2 earn. u should go ask ur neighbors for babysitting $ or u can just ask ur dad 2 wash his truck depending on how long it will take u 2 do.or tell ur neighborhood kids that if they help u get something done then u will get them a profit of what u make and u can give them a couple of bucks while u make the $ and do nothing. *ex* tell ur neighbors u will walk their dog give the dog 2 someone else 2 walk and u get $20 and give ur neighbor 3-5 and ull still have around $15 and u did not do nothing @ all !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm sorry but this was not very helpful. If you are a 10 year old kid, it wouldnt help to watch pets, wash cars, or mow lawns, cuz most ppl just dont trust a ten yr old like me saying that they can do that stuff. lemonade stands dont work. i have a street where a car goes by once a minute, (in a neighborhood) and none of them has ever stopped at my lemonade stand. what i suggest is a small sale or spa, becuase most ppl wouldnt trust a random person. do it IN your house. ask your mom if she would let you do her nails and toenails for 10 bucks, you know, file them, cut them, buff them, and paint them. its well worth it and fun. also, if you have a junk drawer full of fun stuff that you dont want, you could sell it to ur siblings. or you can make necklaces and bracelets. and what about all of the craft presents you got for christmas that you have never used? they will work, too. do the craft, then sell it depending on its value. its really fun and easy. you can even draw pretty pictures with oil pastels or charcoal and sell them. if you like my idea of drawing something, i suggest you draw a grape hyacinth flower. it is very beautiful and looks nice when you draw it with pencil and color it in with colored pencils. look it up on google if you dont know what it is. also drawing hydrangeas (another type of pretty flower) would make a tidy profit. think, "art." its the best way to make money. just draw a few pictures, (take your time! make them neat and something a customer would want to buy) and sell them. those are a few of my suggestions. also, for the spa, make a "spa menu" you know, like this: Manicure...$3.00 Pedicure...$3.00 and there you go! the spa idea will only work if you have a nice steady hand that can draw designs with a bobby pin and some nail polish and paint a nail without it looking horrible, and without getting paint on the skin. to everyone, HOPE THIS HELPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    I think none of these ideas are right for me but I have some good ideas. My ideas are 1. selling stuff that you buy from a warehouse like bb guns, toys, other stuff. 2. get a job as a paper boy or at the fleamarket. Thats fast money. I almost got 100 dollars in one day. Now i have a 1000 dollars. Follow my idea. I'm 13 years old.

    Love the article. I'm trying to find something I'm trying to find something I'm good at. I want to show to my parents that I'm responsible enough to have a dog. I also need the cash because if I get a dog I'm paying for it every cent.

    Hi, the ideas are great, here's another one. Me and my friend are starting a jewelry biss. But its really hard to start because we are planning on doing it in a shed. So to be able to pay for it and all the supplies, we figured out that by may 29 both of us have to HAVE 225 DOLLARS!!!! Any other quick ways you know an 11 year old and an 8 year old can make MONEY and FAST!?!?:)

    ok,these are good jobs and i could dog sit,but there are other jobs like selling some stuff you don't want, babysitting, washing other kid's bikes or having a car wash and if you have someone in the family thats addicted to some sort of candy,you could get a candy machine and make them pay for the candy.

    Ways To Make Money 1.)you could have a bake sale at your nearest rec center or church. 2.)if you are good at arts and crafts you could sell jewlery or art work. 3.)try being a mother's helper:if you are too young to babysitt help a babysitter that is old enough. 4.)go through your basement and/or attic and sell all your unused items in a garage sale. 5.)enter a contest with your friend whick the prize is money or something you can sell. 6.)do wake up calls to adults who get up early in the morning. 7.)make goody baskets for year round holidays. p.s your price is all up to you, but dont charge too much or you wont get many costumers. HOPE I HELPED :)

    hmmmm good ideas but theres a lot of other stuff we can do. Make friends with ur neighbors so they trust u b4 u do these jobs. & u can do bake sales at ur garage sale so first, people will see the interesting stuff and then notice the yummy cookies. u might wanna throw in some sodas. and if ur doing it 4 charity and u have a flyer, put that ur doing it 4 charity. people will b a lot more interested if its 4 a good cause. and u can do chores around ur house. u cant do anything with the elderly cuz thats usually volenteer work. and on hot sunny days if ur having a yard sale, sell ice cream. or if thats illegal, make ur own ice cream and then sell it. and if u dont have any lawns to mow, offer to vaccuum carpets or polish hard wood.be creative!!!!!!

    People, I can't do these things because: A-I live in a small neighborhood. B-I'm too weak to push a lawn mower. C-I'm only 12. D-There's only 3 people that have dogs (not including me). One person has 2, another has 1, and the last has 6, and they all walk them theirselves! However, I do have another way to earn money. It's only fast if you do it A LOT though. Ok, if your mom is like mine she will pay you to brush her hair. Ask her what she'll pay you to do it for an hour. Don't accept unless it's like $5 or more. It might seem like a bad idea, but you're hardly doing any work. Hope this helped!

You can also wash cars or walk dogs or wash dogs. Promote your business by passing out flyers at your school, posting posters around your neighborhood and/or ask if you can post your flyers on a billboard at restraunts.

    i think you could look through all of your stuff and see if you can find some things you don't want. then ask some of your friends if they will give some of their old suff to you. then you could have a yard sale in your own yard. if you make signs around the neiborhood it really atracts customers!

    if you do grass cutting you should make some flyers and you should make alot of them and when you are finshed you should go to some places in your town or city that you know that is popular you should ask the owner if it is ok to put some flyer on the window and you would get calls and it works for all of the 3 ideas

    Bailie, I don't live in a small town (I live in Memphis TN,), but I thought of some good ideas,maybe. In the Summer you and Spring you could pull peoples leaves, and maybe if you have a farmer's market near where you live, you could grow fruits and vegtables and give them to the farmer's market! In the Fall and Winter (fall) you could rake leaves for like 3 dollars a lawn and if you know how to sew, sew jackets' for like 20 dollars (or scarve's). In the winter you could do those same things, but not the raking leaves part. In the winter you can shovel snow of peoples driveways for like 5 dollars! Please respond! -Nathalie M. 10

    If I were you I would ask my mom and dad about STOCKS. If your dad has an account then ask him if you can fiddle with the penny stocks to see how it works. Then buy the real ones that cost $10.00 a piece. I would tell your friend about it. If she thinks that is a crazy idea, too bad. I did this and cannot believe my wealth. I love airsoft guns and I can easily afford anything. But don't get too interested: you are young and still in school. Focus on schoolwork and whatever other stuff they have for kids these days. Whoever made this article really wants to get kids to make money. That is a smart thing to do.

    There aren't a lot of people who want their dogs walked. It's too cold for lemonade (2010 fall, horribe), and nobody in my nieghbor hood has a lawn that needs to be mowed, or yard work. I tried car washing and that went on a week and people got angry that I wanted to wash their car so much they have places to go. I agree with Katie. Even though I don't live in apartments I can relate to her problem. What to do?

    In the winter u can shovel the snow off the deck + shovel roofs. Well i can but it is risky, so do it if you are at least 12. In summer lemonade stand DOES NOT WORK where I live but do more chores. Tell your mom that u need some $$$$$ so yea ok. In the fall u can shovel leaves but if u live in the city water plants. Hope this has helped.

    What do you do if your parents don't trust letting you out of the house? I would do these jobs if they would let me. They say they can pay me themselves, but that would just be pointless.

    To: The guy that talked about Google AdSense. Ahahahahah 10 million dollars.... Never. Google Adsense is pay by click so 1 click = about 5 cents, and no one clicks on ads, i have google Adsense on my site and i make a bout $12 a month... so not a steady cash flow and btw my site gets 100+ views a days so $12 bucks a month is hard 2 get

    im 12, and had a lemonade stand 4 time during the summer and made about $125 altogether, and i never got stoped. I heard about the story in Oregon where a cop or someone made a 7 year old girl shut down because she didnt have a city permit which is stupid.

    I like this but this is kinda obvious and whoever made this missed umm...babysitting! The number one way that preteen/teens are making money around the United States is through babysitting. But it might not pay so good, people tell me to charge $5 per kid per hour...yesderday I babysat 5 kids for 4 1/2 hours and got $15 I gotta admit it was a little bit of an under pay, but they weren't the richest people in town.

    I make and sell pens that are covered in duct-tape. My friend and I make designs (like flowers) and place them on the pens. Each sells for about $2, while a roll of duct tape is only $5... It's a lot of fun since we make them together, and there is no age-requirement, you only need to be creative! Try searching for designs to get you started. Hope I helped 8)

    these all worked and by the end of the year i had.......5,000 dollars i did stuff in the summer and one of the things i got money most for is having a car wash a garage sale and selling lemonade at the same time i had 5 people help me what we did is we had the person look for the stuff at the garage sale and washed the car while they looked then when they got thirsty we gave them lemonade and by the end of the month me and and my 5 friends each had a profit of 100 EACH that means we made 600 in 1 MONTH JUST BY DOING THAT u guys shuld try it hope it works I think there are lots of ways to earn money... lemonad stands or kolaide stands dog walking and washing lawn care garge or yard sales sell cookies or browines shaved ice aka snow cones popcicles or ice cream chores (boring) sell candy selling old books flower planting car wash selling gum (very popular) gift wrapping in december selling silly bandz and last but not least have a food sale!!! hope these tips worked PEACE

    Hey I'm 11 and I make around 150 $ a day on a good day. So first thing you need to do is ask your parents to loan you 1,000 dollars for one of those lawn mowers you can sit in. It's mot nearly as tiring and it's better.I'm also good at basketball and I have a hoop and I run a camp for kids ages 4-6.

    Okay seriously, if the tips won't work for you, go find somewhere else to scratch your butt. Most of the results you'll get are ones related to this. "Oh well, these results don't help me" well then maybe you should keeping looking! Quit making excuses and get a job.

    I'm 10 now, and I'm planning on making some money on making a game with this maker called "001 Game Creator" and I am going to give it to my friends, and if they like it, I will make a series. Also, there is a park across the road, and since it is getting near summer, people will go more often, so shall I put poster up and say when business hours are and what the game is? If I do, should I put pictures? I might sell lemonade as well. Tell me what you think.

    This was not helpful! How the world am i supposed to sell lemonade for 15 cents a cup and make $100?! and if 50 people came by who would buy a cup of lemonade for $2. i could go to da gas station and buy me a whole bottle of lemonade for 1.00 and a stick o beef jerky for 2.00(that is actually worth 2.00)- $3 dollars total.
