How Can An 11 Year Old Make Money Quick?

For 11 year-olds, there are a lot of ways for making money before they are able to get a real job. One option would be to ask their mom to bake cookies for them and sell them in their neighborhood to preferably neighbors they know.

Alternatively in the summer they can fill up a cooler with lemonade, get some cheap cups (8oz/12oz) and set up a table right in front of their front lawn selling lemonade at a marginal price (not too expensive). 1$ a cup is a good start. On a hot day in the summer they could make lots of money from thirsty passersbys or children from the neighborhood.

Another good idea is to offer their brothers and sisters to cook their meals for 25 cents each. Older siblings would most likely to stay in front of the TV than make scrambled eggs or sandwiches.  Since the food is already provided by the parents, the income is pure profit.

Computer literate kids can show old folks how to use a computer and the Internet for a fee. Letting grandparents spread the word would be a good marketing tool.

Collecting returnables such as cans and bottles is another way for making some extra pocket money. Especially during big events around the neighborhood (carnivals, community gatherings) people just leave cans and bottle around. All a kid needs to have in mind is to wear gloves, leave broken cans and bottles alone and use hand sanitizer.

If there are many people in the family, a great way for kids to make money is to sell their services. They can make a list of things they would do and how much they would charge for each. It might include washing windows for 50 cents each, for example, or maybe $1.50 to walk the dog. Another good way to earn money is to buy cheap candy at the store and then sell it in your neighborhood! You'll get more  $$.

These answers are great! I'm 11 and want a kitten sooo bad! One way to make money is to put flyers in your neighbors mailboxes and around the neighborhood with jobs on them! For example:

Pet sitting- $10.00 per hour

Car wash- $20.00
(detailed- +$5.00)

Taking the trash out (as in their big garbage trash cans and put them on the curb)- $5.00

Pet walking (throughout whole street)- $10.00

ETC.! HAVE FUN MAKING UP MORE IDEAS! HOPE THIS HELPS! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

P.S. MAKE THE FLYERS FANCY AND MAYBE LAMINATE THEM SO THEY DON'T GET HURT AND PUT A COUPLE TOGETHER SO PPL CAN TAKE ONE! DON'T FORGET TO PUT YOUR ADDRESS, NAME (FIRST AND LAST), HOME AND CELL PHONE NUMBER!

GOOD LUCK!

Well every 9 weeks is when we get report cards at my school. And my parents want me to make good grades so every A is 5$ and every B is 3$ but sometimes if I get a 100 in one grade not a 95 but a 100 I get 10 $ for it so it adds up and I'm in middle school so we get 8 grades and I make straight A's so that is 40$ right there (but half gos to my bank account :(

I dont know how long ago you posted this but. If you know the people that have dogs then they will prob. Trust you. When they get to know you and see how responsiable they will feel better about leaving their dog to you.

Go around your neighborhood and mow their lawns. Make a price chart to let them know how much you are going to charge them.

Try looking for coins on the ground. Loose change is everywhere. Look on the ground at the grocery store. In parking lots, people take keys out of their pockets and coins come out. 

It may seem dumb but I like walking to my grocery store which is about a mile away and I take one side of the sidewalk there and the other on the way back. I usually find lots of coins there!

The site is legit and they do give out gift codes and cash payments. It seems that if you get to the total points required to claim a prize that you will receive it.

Complete the offers and you’ll eventually get points which you can use to claim the various prizes they have on offer.I’ve heard actually that the referrals are the most effective way of amassing large amounts of points. Some YouTubers for example have made out like complete bandits on this site, by driving very large amounts of traffic through their referral links.

Literally thousands of dollars has been made by YouTube channels with the right niches and less than 20,000 subscribers even. But you have to be good at convincing people to complete the offers and be in the right niches, like Playstation for example. I know some people who have done this - they make way more than Adsense.

Obviously you should always be careful when completing any offers, but there is nothing specifically fraudulent about the site itself. And they won’t send you any spam if you un-check those boxes when signing up either.

You just need your email address. No need for username and password

You know I was in your situation too. And what I did was I told my parents I wanted a good job savings! And when I did dishes or laundry even cleaned the living room instead of giving it to me we would write down the amount and when we went to the store I would subtract the amount that items cost. It was a ton of fun!!!!!!

I'm ten years old too and what made me some money  is possibly making a short news paper it requires a lot of hard work but its quite fun, maybe get a few friends in it as well you could put in the news paper information about your school, who's dating who ect, ect.
Ive been making one since I have been 9 years old and so far oevr the past 10-15months people actually want to put stuff in my news paper like what they want to trade for what and whats missing for a reward. So far ive made about £500 pounds in 5 months but it takes patience because you have to make your newspaper quite popular and local so more people will be intrested in advertising stuff in it.
Hope I helped xP

Well, I have the same problem. I am saving up for a bike, a camera, a bunch of earrings and an iPod. I am seriously thinking about babysitting. You have to advertise to get customers though. Also, if you are saving up   for something set a budget, and pretty soon you will have enough money!!! :)

You could set up a bank account and just keep putting the money you find in it. Or you could sell stuff that you don't need at a car boot sale. Thats what I did and I got £300

I really want a kitten too!!! I get an allowance on the first of every month, and I catsit. Only prob... My two catsitting customers are MOVING!!! 11 year olds are not supposed to babysit because of our age. My idea was to do Misc. Moments. Tell people about your business and they schedule a day for you to come to something that they do (ballet, sports, get 2gether, etc.) take random pictures and show them to the customer via computer. Get they ones they want printed in any size they want (at like walmart or something), and charge them $1.25-$5.00 more than what the photos cost you in the first place. It is a good deal and people get to savor their precious moments.

Ok.you can make a deal with your parents like every month you get $25. But the catch is you can't spend it. And if you don't you get xtra $25 dollars for not spending it. Simple right. It also teaches you how to stand peer pressure.

Take out a family loan- What you do is you ask your mum or dad for £50 and you sell cookies at school for double the price and then you make more money and you pay your mum or dad back in the near or far(far so they forget they gave it to you) future!

Good Luck
