6 Profitable Hobbies To Try This Summer

6 Profitable Hobbies To Try This Summer
  • Opening Intro -

    Many students work summer jobs between semesters so that they can make some spending money and save for the upcoming semester.

    Instead of spending hours searching for the right job that balances making money with fun vacation time, take matters into your own hands.


Here are six profitable hobbies to try this summer that will allow you to make money on your own terms.

Creative Hobbies: Artwork, Writing, Sewing

People who don’t have the skill or time to pursue creative hobbies are often happy to purchase art from the people who do. They will help you turn a profit this summer.

  • Artwork

    There is a market for all kinds of artwork. Original artwork, especially pieces like pottery, do well at live events such as farmer’s markets and craft fairs, so create a collection and spread out your wares.

    To reach a wider audience, use social media. Through social media platforms, you can sell pieces, take commissions, and even offer lessons if you think you’d like to teach.

  • Writing

    Freelance work is a great way to fill your summer schedule at the exact pace you want to set. Multiple websites connect writers with freelancing projects.

    Some are one-time deals and others that can stretch longer if you want more regular work. If you want to completely work for yourself, consider starting a blog, although that will require work beyond just the summer months.

  • Sewing

    Many people think of sewing as a helpful life skill, but you can turn this skill into cash by selling your creations. If you’re not sure where to start, learn about why 2022 is the year for quilting, then create something you’d be willing to purchase.

    Once you feel confident in your work, you can sell the finished product, offer sewing lessons, and take commissions.

Helpful Hobbies: Dog sitting, Babysitting, House Cleaning

Some people enjoy activities that other people consider to be chores. You can use that difference in opinion to make some money this summer.

  • Dog Sitting

    If you’re one of those people who loves working with animals, use the summer to get paid to do so. While people with full-time jobs often don’t have the time or energy to walk their dogs during the great summer weather, you have nothing but time on your break and can offer it in exchange for cash.

    Summer is also vacation time, but some destinations don’t allow pets. As a result, there are many opportunities to dog-sit while the owners are relaxing.

  • Babysitting

    College students aren’t the only ones out of school for the summer. Younger kids are home, but most parents still have to work.

    That leaves a childcare gap that you can easily fill. Advertise your services on babysitting websites or social media, and soon you’ll have families reaching out to ask for help.

  • House Cleaning

    Keeping a house clean feels impossible to most adults who work full-time jobs, especially if they also have family members to look after, such as children or elderly parents.

    You can fill the gap and offer your cleaning services if you’re one of the people who enjoys cleaning in their free time.

Artwork, writing, sewing, dog sitting, babysitting, and house cleaning are six profitable hobbies to try this summer so that you can make money on your own schedule.

These creative and helpful hobbies are a great way to balance enjoying your summer vacation and making extra cash for the next semester.
