Here are 10 jobs for 14 year olds to earn some extra money in their spare time:

1) wash windows

A bucket of warm water with a little vinegar and a squeegee is all it takes to make money washing windows.

Who has more time to wash windows? I know not!

That’s why I happily pay my teenage sons to do the dirty to work!

You can charge per window, for example $5 dollars per window, or per hour. Money adds up fast. Try putting up a local flyer at the grocery store, library, etc.

two) clean out the attic or basement

Isn’t it amazing how much stuff can it accumulate? Most of the houses are filled to the roofs of trash!

Teenagers can earn money cleaning up other people’s trash. And some of them can be recycled for even more cash.

Remember, a messy house is a messy mind!

3) Mow the lawn or shovel the driveway

This may seem obvious, but I’m always AMAZED How many dads do I see mowing the lawn… or shoveling the sidewalk, instead of Johnny Junior!

Besides being great exercise, mowing the lawn or shoveling the walk is good money and good exercise for an ambitious 14-year-old.

4) Weird paint jobs

Do you have walls? That is RIGHT worth paying!

Many homeowners have a room in their house that they would like to spruce up with a fresh coat of paint. But they don’t have the time or the large amount of cash to pay a professional painter. But they can afford to pay a teenager between $50 and $75 for a good job.

And if you’re up for painting ceilings, you can do even more. Just make sure you have plenty of drop cloths to cover the floor in case of leaks.

5) pool boy

If you have a pool or hot tub, you KNOW it takes TO WORK to keep it clean. You can set up weekly or monthly pool cleanings with the neighbors. Head to a neighborhood with 3 or 4 pools so you can save time and fuel by doing it at the same time.

6) brush cleaning

My mother-in-law is always looking for strong, dependable teenagers who want to earn extra money clearing brush and debris.

Matthew, my 12 year old son, just earned $20 for a few hours of work!

7) garden tillage

Every spring and fall, I hire my son Tony to garden. It’s an easy way to earn extra money at home or even in the neighborhood.

8) Bookkeeping

This is not only a great way to earn extra money, but also an invaluable and useful skill to learn. That is, if you’re feeling brave about the bills!

9) Landscaping projects or Plant Doctor

Do you have some sort of green thumb? You are reliable?

Both business owners and homeowners need someone to water their houseplants regularly or when they go on vacation. This is a fun and easy way to earn extra money.

Or if you have a strong back, you could break out the shovels and beautify the gardens with a tea rose garden, raised flower bed, or small goldfish pond!

10) Artist

Do you have an artistic or talented teenager? Encourage her to advertise her talents and draw, photograph or draw portraits to earn extra money at home.

I know an 18-year-old girl who paints horse portraits to earn extra money.

Or you could make your own design and sell t-shirts, mugs, etc. at CafePress.

There are many jobs for 14 year olds to earn money, you just have to be willing and motivated. And do a little brainstorming!
