Earn Money

Kids, perhaps you can earn money yourself before the party. See how these kids across the country find ways to make money:

Look yourself up by state!

Thomas, 8, Alabama

"I vacuum the carpets and clean the toilet. I use a scrubby wand so it isn't too yucky."

Eric, 10, Maryland

"I rake leaves in the fall and shovel snow in the winter."

Lily, 8, Illinois

"When my mom babysits, I help her keep the baby and little boy happy."

Alesia, 11, Alabama

"My mom works at a beauty salon cutting hair. I help her sweep up the hair on the floor and fold towels."

Jessie, 9, California

"I moved from Thailand to California three years ago and learned English. Now, I get paid to help other kids who just moved here to America. I read books with them in English."

Emma, 8, Colorado

"I am a mother's helper for my next-door-neighbor's 5-year-old daughter with Down's syndrome. We jump on the trampoline together; she is so cute."

Josh, 9, Alabama

"I walk my dog and my neighbor's dog."

Jeff, 12, California

"I collect soda cans and my dad takes them to the recycling center. I earn some money and help clean up my community."

Selena, 8, Alabama

"I sell lemonade and kool-aid on hot summer days."

Kids, you can email your photo and a sentence about how you earn money to: info@mosbb.org!
