12 Fun and Simple Jobs for 10 Year Olds

Financial literacy is an essential survival skill. Getting kids ready for success means teaching them basic survival skills that are right for their age. Even at a young age, you can teach your child how to make money with these jobs for 10-year-old.

Generally speaking, children cannot be employed in the real sense of the word. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the minimum age for non-agricultural employment at 14.

How Young Is Too Young?

1. Perform in Movie or Artistic Productions

This is great for kids who love outdoor activities. If your child is just starting, you might suggest that they begin by assisting the homeowner. Once the child has become accustomed to the yard work routine, he can start to work independently with minimal supervision.

2. Yard work

This option is usually top-of-the-mind for many parents. It’s a quick and straightforward way for your children to make extra cash over the summer.

4. Organize Clutter

Clutter can be problematic, and making it disappear is even more challenging. But if you have a 10-year-old, they can help you clean up the over-filled garage or the unsightly spare room where you dare not entertain guests.

5. Social Media Influencer

Being a social media influencer is a means to convert your child’s interest into a social media following. Any of her social media handles can be devoted to a subject they are passionate about, such as video games, pets, toys, or books.
