When I was about ten years old, a neighborhood friend and I were hanging around outside one day during summer break when we discovered mint leaves in my background.

For some reason we got pretty excited about this discovery and thought we should go door-to-door and try to sell it.

The first woman who answered the door said to us, clearly annoyed, “No thank you. I have mint in my own backyard.”

And thus our business idea was ended.

Fortunately, it’s much easier today for kids with an entrepreneurial spirit and a little time on their hands to make some extra money, or even start their own business.

Not only can you easily find tons of fun crafts for kids online, but there are many lucrative ways to sell them. My daughter put her artistic skills to work a few years ago and ran an Etsy shop for a while.

But Etsy’s not the only way for a little entrepreneur to sell their cool crafts. Kids can also take advantage of local craft fairs, flea markets, and garage sales. Some schools even have a school market day fundraiser.

Here’s a list of 37 easy crafts that kids can make and sell. Then at the end of the list I spend some time talking about how kids can make and sell digital printables.

Just to give you some ideas for printable products, my Etsy shop sells:
