What are some ways for a 13 year old girl to make money?

I already babysit sometimes, definetely can't mow any lawns, so I'm running out of ideas on how to make money... I've even tried selling things on eBay, but it just didnt work. I would appreciate all ideas wether it's online, around the neighborhood, etc

At 13, I taught myself photography and with my small camera, I banged on the doors of every legal firm in Boston (there were, and are, a lot of them there), giving them a business card, I made myself - which read, "Legal Photography" (I know, it sounds a bit sleazy, today - but remember, I was just 13)...I had lawyers and paralegals picking me up at my high school to shoot accident scenes and injuries (I was too young to drive) - anything they could use in court - I made some serious money for a kid - hint: identify a business need wherever you are, figure out how you can help the businesses, learn what you need to know on your own, let potential customers know about you,( how you can help them), and be persistent - it might be something as simple as I did...it's not always "who you know" - it's often "who knows you"...

Thanks - kids have the advantage of not being told what they can't do by a system that molds humans into conformity.

If you are the creative type, you can make beaded jewelry, like I do and sell your creations. Do your parents pay you for the chores you do around the house?
