Ways for an 11 Year Old to Make Money


If your 11 year old is searching for ways to make money, here are some ideas to get him started. Jobs and pay are variable based on your location, the difficulty, and the time it takes to complete each job.

1. Babysitter

Babysitting is one of the most popular ways for an 11 year old to make money. The Red Cross offers babysitters classes to prepare 11 to 15 year olds for babysitting.

2. Yard Work

An 11 year old might not feel comfortable mowing 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.

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

Petsitting responsibilities typically include stopping by a neighbor's house to feed an animal a few times per day while the owner's are away.
