If your kids are anything like mine, you’ll probably start to hear the typical “Mom, I’m bored” complaint coming sometime around the end of June. It seems like even a month into Summer, the kids are bored from their vacation! I decided to take a page from my Mom’s book and every time my kids utter the phrase “I’m bored” they get assigned a chore of some sort. Since I’ve implemented this method, I’ve heard MUCH less about my kids being bored! Keep your kids entertained this summer, while keeping your house clean with a few of these great summer jobs for teens.
Even if doing chores is the last thing they wanted to do, at least they won’t be bored anymore. 😉
Send them outside with a watering can! I love when my kids help in the garden, and they get excited to see the fruits and veggies start growing. So much is learned in the garden!
Another great summer job for teens is weeding the garden or the flower beds. I had a childhood friend that went out and weeded every Saturday morning for an hour without fail. Their yard looked amazing!
