6. Face Painting Station. Skip the birthday party. If your child is old enough, he can host his own face painting station.

7. Tattoo Station. If your child is too young to face paint, he can always display a variety of tattoos and adhere the tattoo for customers.

8. Puppet Show. For the child who loves to perform, why not put on a puppet show for neighbors, friends and family?  He could script his own show and stage his own production.

9. Toy Sale. If you’ve missed your spring clean, summer can present a nice opportunity to clear out clutter before a new school year. Whatever toys that don’t get sold can be donated, which will teach your child to be socially conscious as well.

10. DIY Crafts.

Whether it’s making hair bows, soaps, candles, or your own slime, your child learn to package her product sell them. There’s no validation like having someone pay for your creations.
