If your child is looking for a summer job
, here are some ideas for 10 year olds. Jobs and pay are variable based on your location, the difficulty, and the time it takes to complete each job.
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.
A lemonade stand is always a fun business adventure for kids. While it won't be a regular job, holding a lemonade sale once or twice during the summer could yield some extra spending money.
Dogs need to get out for exercise all year long, but in the summertime your kids will have extra time. Make sure that your child feels comfortable with the pet before they take them for a walk the first time.
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. 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.
