Full Answer

Children aged 8 to 10 may have an interest in babysitting, but these jobs are best for preteens or kids around the age of 11, according to Madison DuPaix from About.com. Kids under 11 who are interested in caring for other kids can act as "mother's helpers," notes DuPaix, where the mother remains at home and supervises while children take on babysitting duties.

Business-savvy kids in this age group may do well selling items to their peers, neighbors and friends, such as candy and inexpensive novelty items. Parents can arrange for items to be purchased in bulk and may provide seed or startup money to their kids to help them start their businesses.

Light yard work, pet sitting and helping the elderly or busy adults with taking out the trash or cleaning out the garage are also other jobs that kids 8 to 10 years old can take on to earn extra money.
