Fun First Time Jobs For Kids

Kids get the freedom that comes along with having their own money when they work. A job can also teach a kid how to become a responsible adult. Many kids do not want to work because they think that their job will be boring. On the contrary, there are a number of fun jobs for kids. Below are some of the many fun jobs that kids can do.


If your kid loves small children, then a babysitting job may be perfect for him or her. Babysitting jobs are relatively simple to find because parents are always looking for someone to take care of their child. Babysitters typically work on the weekends, so it will be easier for a child to work and keep up with his or her studies.

It is very important for your child to know what to do if an emergency situation arises. That is why is why babysitters are strongly advised to take a course in CPR and first aid.

Animal Shelter Worker

Animal shelters are always looking for hard-working people. People who work in animal shelters spend their days feeding the animals and cleaning out the cages. This is a great job for kids who are interested in becoming a veterinarian because it will give them the hands-on experience that they need.

Restaurant Waiter or Waitress

Despite the fact that waiters and waitresses often have to work long hours and deal with unpleasant customers, this job can be a lot of fun. People get to socialize with other employees and get free or discounted food. Waiters and waitresses can also make a lot of money in tips.


This is another great job for people who love working with children. Schools hire tutors, but your child can also tutor online. One of the advantages of being an online tutor is that one has the option of setting his or her own hours. That is huge benefit for a busy student who has other things to do.

Retail Job

There are a number of benefits that can be reaped from having a retail job. People who work in retail get merchandise discounts and the opportunity to work alongside other people. They also get to enjoy light schedules.

Some of the downsides that come along with working a retail job is that one will most likely have to work weekends, make minimum wage and deal with unhappy customers. However, this is a great first time job because it teaches a young person how to interact with various types of people.
