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.

2. 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.

3. Babysitter

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.

4. Dog Walker

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.

5. 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.
