50 Business Ideas For Kids

Written By Natalya Story @ My Kid Entrepreneur Academy

As Albert Einstein once said, "Play is the highest form of research," and what better way to stimulate your child's creativity than by encouraging them to start their own small business?

Business Ideas For Kids: My Kid Entpreneur

Here’re the 5 business ideas we recommend your kids start with:

1. Start with something simple…

  1. Lemonade Stand - easy and profitable

  2. Baked goods - Gluten free cookies are all the rage lately

  3. Dog treats - easy to make… easy to sell

  4. Dog toys - a simple hemp rope with sweet potato slices on top easily sell for $20 a pop

  5. Garage sale - you probably have a ton of stuff in your house you no longer need that kids can sell and get their first experience.

Once your kids have tried any of these, it's the perfect time to help them kick their imaginations into high gear!

Entrepreneurial Journey through publishing a book:

2. Up next, five business ideas that prove no idea is too wild to work!

1. Anonymously send a brick or potato? Justin and Robbie Holt came up with the idea to send anonymously brick or potato as a joke. Brothers Holt make thousands by doing it.

2. Rock as a Pet? Gary Dahl came ups with the ideas of selling rocks as a pet. In just a few months he sold millions of them!

3. Do you like Cat Drawings? Steve Gadlin sold thousands of stick figure cat drawings and signed a deal with Mark Cuban.

4. Wearable Blanket? Gary Clegg was a student at college when he created the first "Slanket"- blanket with sleeves. Over $350 million worth of Slankets were sold around the world.

5. Can't have candies because of the Sugar? Alina Morse didn't agree and when she was 9 years old she created LolliPops without Sugar. Now she is running the Fastest Growing Candy Company in America.
