9 Ideas on Earning Allowance

Here are some ideas for children to earn allowance:

  1. Chores: Assign specific chores for the child to do, such as making their bed, doing the dishes, or taking out the trash.

  2. Helping with errands: Allow the child to earn allowance by helping with errands, such as grocery shopping or picking up dry cleaning.

  3. Pet care: If the family has pets, the child can earn allowance by taking care of them, such as feeding them or walking them.

  4. Yard work: The child can earn allowance by helping with yard work, such as mowing the lawn or raking leaves.

  5. Babysitting: If the child is old enough, they can earn allowance by babysitting younger siblings or neighborhood children.

  6. Entrepreneurial opportunities: Encourage children to come up with their own ideas for earning money, such as selling homemade crafts or providing a service, like dog walking.

  7. Academics: Offer a reward for good grades or for meeting specific academic goals.

  8. Reading: Encourage children to read by offering them money for every book they read.

  9. Saving: Offer to match the money children save from their allowance.

It's important to remember that the goal is not only to earn money but also to teach children the value of work, responsibility, and time management.
