My parents are both entrepreneurs and it’s got me thinking about my future career. Last week I started my own recycling program in our neighbourhood. I pick up their empties every Saturday. Yesterday was my first pick-up.
So far I’ve raised about $182. I’m not totally sure what I’m saving up for yet, but I have a few ideas:
Here are some other ideas for kids like me to make money.
1. Dog Walking
I think it would be AWESOME to dog walk because you could combined it with two other odd jobs you could Babysit while dog walking and house clean. You could clean the house first then go on a walk with the kid(s) and the dog(s). Then I would take them home and play with the kids.
I’m REALLY excited to start babysitting because I already have 2 gigs both of them have a dog and they are both super nice! F.Y.I to take the babysitting course you have to be at least eleven and to actually babysit you have to be twelve and the babysitters these days charge ten dollars an hour.
3. Lawn Mowing
You could combined it with dog walking,babysitting and house cleaning.
4. Car Washing
You could babysit,dog/kid walk, house clean,mow lawns AND car wash! It would make a LOT of money!
5. Rake leaves
You can babysit,dog/kid walk, house clean, mow lawns, car wash and rake leaves.
So those are some ideas for being a kidpreneur! You can combined babysitting with a bunch of odd jobs!
I’m doing a road trip to Portland with my family next week. I’m psyched!
There are SO many tourist attractions:
Powell’s City of Books
The Lan Su Chinese Garden
The Stumptown Coffee Roasters
The Oregon Zoo
The Pittock Mansion
The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI)
The International Rose Test Garden
The Portland Art Museum and The Portland Japanese Garden.
Powell’s City of Books
I’m super excited for Powell’s City of Books because… well I’m crazy ’bout books! It’s gonna be like this the whole time we’re a the city of books:
ME: Can I PLEASE get a book! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!
MOM: We’ll see,Emma. Begging makes me want to by it less.
There are three different gardens in Portland. I’m excited to see them because I’m in the gardening club in my school. I think gardens are really pretty. I think these ones in particular are going to catch my eye.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters
I’m excited to go to the Stumptown Coffee Roasters because I think my parents would like it there. Although my dad has developed a sensitive tast of coffee…
The Oregon Zoo
I’m excited to go to The Oregon Zoo because I love going to the zoo I’ve been to the Calgary Zoo but I haven’t been to the Vancouver Zoo. (If there is one!)
I’m excited to go to the Pittock Mansion, because well… I’ve never seen a mansion!
I’m SO SO excited to see the OMSI! Because I liked the Science World HERE and the OMSI is not much different I presume.
I’m excited to go to Voodoo Doughnut cause I love doughnuts!
The Portland Art Museum
I love ART!! I’m excited for The Portland Art Museum!
I’m sure we won’t get to all of these this trip, but I hope to do them eventually.
Have you been to Portland or do you live there? What am I missing?
Have you ever be to Vancouver? Well if you have then you probably know that there are a LOT of tourist attractions. But there are four in particular that stand out like Science World, Stanley Park (Sea Wall), The Aquarium and The Burnaby Village Museum.
The Vancouver Aquarium
At the Vancouver Aquarium there’s an octopus, there are penguins and Dolphins and much more than I can describe . What I like abou the Aquarium is that you get to see so many water animals up close. There are some really fun activities, too. You can watch a dolphin show, go look at the penguins and dress up like an animal doctor and cure sick stuffed dolphins and whales. You can dress up like a dolphin, too!
Science world is one of my favourites. When we first moved to Vancouver, we got a family pass. We should have gotten a dad-daughter pass, because my mom doesn’t love these kinds of places. It reminds her too much of work. But my dad and I love science, so we went together a bunch.
What I love about Science world is all the different interactive activities.
There’s a harp with no strings. There’s a human-sized hamster wheel. There are live science shows where if you’re lucky you get chosen from the audience as a volunteer. This has happened to me three times! It’s super fun, interesting and entertaining.
I didn’t find any awesome pictures of the Burnaby Village Museum or Stanley Park, but I highly recommend checking them out. You won’t be sorry.
At Stanley Park, on a not-too-busy day, it’s lots of fun to go biking there. You’re right by the ocean, you can run, you can walk with your dog, bring a scooter (not the motor kind), and the Aquarium is right in the park!
Burnaby Village Museum
At Burnaby Village Museum there is a one-room school house, old trains and at the front there is a carousel. It’s a little bit like Heritage Park in Calgary, but smaller.
Whats you favourite thing to do in your city? If you live in Vancouver,what did I miss?
