Omg! I can't wait to see the answer to this question!! I have been asking this too!!

Only thing I can come up with is watching TV. The thanksgiving table says a sim will earn 189 XP in 7 minutes, however my inspired sims only earn 80 XP from the thanksgiving dinner table.

Of course relationships earn 150 XP or more!

Well... When you go to bed one of the options gives you about 500 xp in 7 hours. If you go to school or work, make all your sims do that option to get loads of xp. Right now I just have two sims because I restarted the app, but when I leave the house I make both of them do it and when I'm back I'm almost levelled up

What is a device you can shake?
Guest said: 9th Sep 2017 | REPORT
To shake the device, literally take your phone or iPad and shake it. However, you have to continually put in 'clean up'. It gives you 1xp/second, but only goes for three seconds. So you have to just tap 'clean up' for a while. You can go to a bookcase to find the book. Bookcases are found in build mode, under living room.

Grow lettuce. 45 mins will earn $928 and 360XP. If you get the sims eating plant it takes 3 mins to negotiate but still worth it.

For an adult Sim: Watching tv does not give me a lot of xp and Hibernating gives around 900. Going to work gives 1150, once you have reached level 5 . I still prefer gardening, green beans are the best, 9h gives a decent amount of simoleones and xp. The most xp you get baking the famable cakes or growing the genetically modified plants, but there is always a chance of losing the cake / plant, simoleones and xp altogether. So I prefer the safe options Smile.

I have 10 towels lined up in one garden - and have 10 Sims tan at once. That's 1420xp in 5min! Often more as I am on level 30 and quite often get 80xp bonus per Sim from the Mystery Island quest. Towels are found in Outdoor Furniture!

The way to earn the most XP is to play often, when you go to bed put your sims into deep sleep. That way you aren't missing any time with the sims. Also when you go to work or school send your sims to work. Do the long activities that earn lots of XP when you know you won't be playing. There isn't really any cheat that works. I learned that the hard way. Hope this works 4 you it works 4 me!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

"Warn Simanity" on the soapbox in the park will get you 1800xp... Takes 24 hours, but that's a lot of xp. Also is you gather a bunch or all your sims in one house, then get them all to watch a movie marathon, each sim will get about 1200xp in about 8 hours. Also, one of the choices in the pre-teen bookcase is worth almost 1600xp in about 9 hours.

I think so far for me the fastest way to earn xp points is to get your sims dancing together at the night club. If they are strangers in your relationship meter you will earn the most xp points very quickly. Make sure their inspired meter are completely full first.

Guys I think the best way earning xp is
Go to the park grill some barbeque it gives 400+to 600+ xp in 30 mins
1. Bring a couple of sim
2.use the 30 mins barbeques
3. If you have example 3 sims make the two sims use the barbeque wait 30 seconds they will leave the grill
4. After the 2 sims left the grill they will on the park table
And last click the 3rd sim you got and make him grill barbeque and he will eat on the park jtable also wait 30mins and you can have a thousand xp especially if you have 4-10 sims

Actions that are completed the fastest generally have the highest XP per minute ratio. Kicking over the trascah gives you 210 XP per minute and cleaning it up gives 180. But that also gets you dirty quickly so you have to go shower often. Changing into a swimsuit in a wardrobe also gives you 180 xp per minute. Admiring the easel gives you 105 Xp per minute. Washing your hands in a high rated sink gives you 84 Xp. Obviously you have to do it over and over again. Basically, get the highest rated item and do the shortest actions for the most XPERIA per minute.

I have found for lower level people that having a few sims bake choc pudding (for 2hrs) gives you 300+ xp afterwards. Having 2-3 sims can give you up to 900+ xp also before you sleep bake a pumpkin pie overnight give up to 800+ xp after 10hrs so having 3 sims gives you more than 2400 xp.

If you have a couple sims who aren't aqquintance or friends, keep making them be nice to eachother, each time you come to a new stage in your friendship/realationship you will get 100-250 xp. So when you add a new sim, be sure to have he/she be friends with all your other sims.

When you are level 11+, build the pet store, buy a bunny(any kind), place in your house. You don't get the bunny from the pet store, get one in the PETS section of the home store. Click the bunny(Using a fully grown sim) and select 'Examine rabbit', and you will get 673 xp in 5 hours.
