One of the best lessons you can teach your children is the value of hard-earned money. These days, there are many things that you can do to make money with your kids. These options can be done at home or within your neighborhood.
Here are some of the ways that you and your children can earn money:
1. Putting Up a Lemonade Stand
Kids can put up a lemonade stand with water, sugar, and lemons. It’s a refreshing drink for a hot summer day, and it doesn’t take much to prepare.
2. Selling Homemade Products
You and your children can create DIY bracelets, necklaces, or old t-shirts into tie-dyed shirts. You can also post them online or sell them door-to-door.
3. Washing Cars
If you don’t mind getting all dirty and greasy, a car wash is an excellent way for you to gain income. You and your children can offer a car wash to busy households.
4. Selling at the Farmers Market
If you have an empty backyard, you and your kids can start planting vegetables. It’ll be an excellent activity to teach your kids how to take care of nature and a great way to provide fresh produce for people visiting the farmers market.
5. Having a Garage Sale
If you have shirts or stuff that you don’t use anymore, you and your children can hold a garage sale. It’s a great way to gain income and gain more space to put in new things as a replacement for the old ones.
6. Watering Plants
Go to your neighbors and ask them if you can water their plants for a few bucks if they’re too busy to do it themselves. By doing this, you can also make new friends along the way.
7. Brushing and Grooming Dogs
We all know that dogs are a man’s best friend and a lot of people in your neighborhood could have dogs. If you have a sure love for dogs and want to profit, why not groom them? Ask around your neighborhood if anyone would hire you to brush their dog and make them look good. Just make sure that you and your children get trained first.
8. Being a Mom’s Helper
Moms often have so much work to do, and they can’t even relax for a bit. You and your kids can offer services to neighboring moms that are too busy with housework to take care of other things.
9. Taking Photos
Are your kids passionate about taking photos? You and your kids can start a photography team and take pictures at family events, like weddings and birthday parties. It is a great way to gain income as well as enhance their photography skills.
10. Walking Dogs
Dogs need to have the appropriate amount of exercise to stay healthy and active. And sometimes, people can be a bit lazy and forget to walk their dogs. So you and your kids can volunteer to walk their dogs for them and earn money as dog walkers. Make sure that the children don’t walk big dogs because they might be too small to handle the strength and speed of these kinds of dogs.
