As of 2014, 12-year-olds can earn money with jobs such as babysitting, dog walking and pet sitting. Other jobs that kids can do to earn money include mowing lawns, doing yard work and getting a paper route.
While 12-year-old kids cannot typically work regular jobs due to age restrictions, they can ask to help clean the house or their neighbor's house for extra money. Kids can also make extra money by offering to bring in the neighbor's mail or newspaper while he is away. Kids can also do other types of jobs for money such as painting fences, taking down or putting up seasonal decorations and cleaning cars.
