Ye Olde Lemonade Stand:
Use homemade recipe, display fresh lemons on counter, use extra-large colorful plastic cups, and sell near parades, church letting out, charity race, baseball tournaments, beaches, or other social event
This is by far the most popular way to earn money for kids...I remember selling lemonade for a dime!
Advertise your best specific items (bicycles, Playstation and games, VCRs) on flyers in neighborhood, and if you have toys to sell, advertise those in flyers near the local schoolyard: have colorful balloons tied to your mailbox to make your house easy to spot
Warning:This may not be the best way to earn money...my kids and I made a lousy $15 at one of our garage sales!!
Selling homemade baked goods:
Take custom orders, hand out mini recipe books with each order: set up this and the lemonade stand when you have a garage sale
Walking dogs for neighbors:
Offer this service to older neighbors and single people who work long hours and can’t always get home to take care of their dogs during the day
This is a growing way to make some quick cash for your pet lover!! Or start a website to make money online too!
Save all your cans and bring to recycling center once every two weeks or so: also ask neighbors if you can take cans from their recycle bins they put on the curb
Fresh Vegetable Stand:
Grow your own tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, and sweet corn and set up a stand with clear prices at the end of your driveway with colorful balloons attached. You could also sell at the local farmers market. Put up flyers at churches and grocery stores.
If you grow organic vegetables - even better! Be sure to start a mini-website to cash in on making money online as well.
Delivering papers and flyers:
Go to local Pennysaver office, and offer services: also go to restaurants, real estate agencies and other local businesses that may from time to time want to advertise their businesses with flyers in the neighborhood
My mom used this way to earn money for 10 years delivering the Pioneer Press in St. Paul, Minnesota!
Stuffing envelopes, and applying postage (letter shopping):
Many small businesses need to do mailings of 100 to 200 people or so. They may send out a newsletter, sales offer or business update to clients. Draw up a flyer describing the services you offer and distribute it to all local businesses.
Selling sodas and bottled water at beach or park:
Make sure you have plenty of diet soda; have a big cooler with ice nearby (maybe in the car, or with a friend or sibling watching it); then walk the beach with a knapsack with the beverages and dry ice inside
Pass flyers out in neighborhood and offer to wash people’s cars in their own driveway. Offer vacuuming as well; Pass out flyers out at office buildings and offer to wash people’s cars while they’re at work.
Taking care of pets, taking in mail and watering plants for people while they’re away:
Drop off stacks of flyers at local travel agencies; also pass them around the neighborhood.
If your teen is at all computer savvy, this is a very lucrative, unique way to earn money, and valuable experience. You can easily charge $15-$20 per hour and purchase inexpensive software that makes designing websites a breeze.
Offer services in office buildings on a regular basis - once or twice a week during the summer, or even on Saturday mornings during the school year for offices, like banks, that are open then.
My husband pays our kids $2 a pop to polish his shoes once a week!
Retrieving, restoring and reselling golf balls:
Most golf courses are closed one day a week for maintenance. Ask head groundskeeper if you can patrol the fairways for balls. Offer to rake the sand traps in return.
Most apartment buildings in small towns are owned by individuals and need the hallways vacuumed, tile washed, and occasional dusting.
Find out the owners of nearby buildings at the local courthouse and send a letter offering your services for a profitable way to earn money.
We hire our fifteen year old daughter to do light vacuuming and dusting, and our twelve year old son to shovel the sidewalks for an apartment building we own.
