Babysitting is a popular summer job to explore when school is out. The Red Cross offers babysitters classes to prepare 11 to 15 year olds for babysitting.

2. Lawn Mowing

If your child likes to be outdoors and regularly mows your lawn, lawn mowing is a great job to explore. Be sure to determine if your child will use your mower or the homeowner's mower.

3. Yard Work

In addition to lawn mowing, children can help out with other yard work that homeowners need. Various tasks could include raking leaves, spreading mulch, or planting flowers.

4. Dog Walker

Dogs need to get out for exercise all year long. Make sure that your child feels comfortable with the pet before they take them for a walk the first time.

5. Pet Sitter
