Making money is not for adults only 

Sometimes it seems like it isn’t that easy for immigrants’ kids to make extra money. In many places they can’t get regular jobs, and when they do they are not protected by the law in the way that adults are.

But the truth is there are lots of jobs that kids can do to make money if they are creative enough, and especially if they have the support of adults. For safety, with younger kids it is especially important that adults are involved if they will be in any way interacting with strangers (or even neighbors).

Here is a list of ideas on how kids can make money:
