Ways for a 10 Year Old to Make Money


If your 10 year old is looking 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 task.

1. Yard Work

A 10 year old may still be too young to mow lawns, but they may be able to help out with other yard work that homeowners need. 10 year olds can make money by raking leaves, spreading mulch, or planting flowers.

2. 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.

3. Dog Walker

Dogs need to get out for exercise all year long. Dogwalking is a great way for 10 year olds to make money. Make sure that your child feels comfortable with the pet before they take them for a walk the first time.

4. Mother's Helper

While your 10 year old 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.
