10 Fun Ways Kids Can Make Money This Spring Break

It is never too early to teach kids about finances, and if you are looking for ideas to get your kids to earn some extra cash during Spring Break, I have them for you! Kids can make money over spring; it's possible no matter the age.

Kid Holding Money

These ideas on how kids can make money over spring break depend on two factors:

  • kids' age
  • what they can handle

Of course, parents are required to help and keep them focused. Many of these ideas require a certain amount of time and planning, so please keep that in mind.

How Kids Can Make Money Over Spring Break

Lemonade stand

Running a lemonade stand is a popular way for kids to make money over spring break. Have your children sell lemonade for extra money this spring during a family yard sale.

Pet sitting

Depending on the child's age, pet sitting family and friends' pets will be an excellent way to earn some extra cash.

Yard sale

Yard sales are one of my favorite ways for the entire family to make extra money over spring. We get rid of stuff we no longer need nor want, kids sell their lemonade and baked goods, and we all make money! How great is that?

Household chores

Create a household chore list and find them their age-appropriate chores to do at home. From cleaning an extra room to organizing areas of the house, this is an excellent way for kids to earn money.

Babysitting/Mom's Helper

Again, depending on their age, having your kids babysit younger kids, or helping moms or other parents is a great way to earn money over the spring.

Helping the neighbors with their lawn or other family members with their yard is another way to make money. Of course, this depends on how old your child or children are and how comfortable they are operating a mower.

Dog Walker

If your kid loves pets, dog walking will be another way to make extra cash. The bonus about this is that they will have fun and go out and exercise.

Make crafts to sell

During the yard sale, please have your children sell their crafts for money. The crafts your child or children make maybe say awesome. You might be able to sell their crafts online as well!


There are many ways for children to earn money, and one of them is via playing games in Swagbucks. Though they will not get real cash, they will earn Swagbucks, allowing them to earn gift cards to many of their favorite retailers and more.

Car wash

A car wash is another way for kids to earn money over the spring. Host a family and friend car wash and have the kids earn extra cash doing a car wash.

Remember that, again, these money-making ideas for kids are, well, for kids. This will be a great experience for them to earn some cash and learn more responsibility. Remember to make it fun and educational.
