Jobs for 9 Year Olds

By

If your child is looking for a job for 9 year olds, here are some ideas to get her started. Jobs and pay are variable based on your location, the difficulty, and the time it takes to complete each job.

1. Yard Work

Your child may still be too young to mow lawns, but they may be able to help out with other yard work that homeowners need. Various tasks could include raking leaves, spreading mulch, or planting flowers.

2. Mother's Helper

While your child is probably still a year or two away from babysitting, being a mother's helper could be a great way to get started. Your child can help care for younger children, while a parent is still at home, but busy with other tasks.

3. 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.

4. Pet Sitter

Responsibilities typically include stopping by a neighbor's house to feed an animal a few times per day while the owner's are away. In addition, they can also offer to bring in the newspaper or mail and water any houseplants.

5. Family Business

This job often works best when you own your own business. You can have your children help with filing papers, mailing letters and other office work.
