Creative Ways to Make Money That are Weird Crazy or Funny
But why not think of this in a different way? Kids who earn money learn to handle money better than other kids.
Running errands, mowing lawns, selling home baked cookies are all some of the ways to make money for kids. But there is no creativity involved here.
Young Kids with Expert Business Sense
One of my friend’s kids started a rat breeding business a few years back. The surprising part was that these kids were just 8 and 10 years old. They set up a small business, which involved some investment to buy the rats, create an enclosure for the rats, taking care of them until they were ready to be sold etc.
These kids were small but they were experts at handling their business. My friend says that the siblings handled every aspect of the business on their own, without many inputs from their parents.
The rats would breed and create a litter in just 6-12 weeks. The kids sold these baby rats to other kids who wanted them as pets. Well, this is a real life example of creative ways to make money for kids. There are other ways to make money too.
Most of the kids know how to make quilts, caps, hand bags and many other such interesting stuffs, because they learn it at school. If the creativity level is good, then these stuffs can be sold on eBay or in the neighborhood.
Crazy but Creative Way to Make Money
My neighbor’s kids have come up with a crazy idea to make money. These kids are both boys and they are just 6 and 9 years old. On weekends they head outdoors with large bottles.
They keep looking for worms and when they find them, they carefully lift them off the ground and put them into the bottles.
They then sell it to all the people in the neighborhood, who have fish tanks at home.
I was surprised to learn that this idea was actually thought out by the younger boy. They earn a good sum of money in this way, each week.
It really does not take anything else than creativity to make money. Every enterprise in the world; small or large has begun with an idea or creative spark. I have put together some of creative ways to make money that seemed weird, funny and strange to me. Keep checking back, because I will be putting together more creative ways to make money for elderly, teens and moms in the near future.
