Unhappy Super Bummer: Scratch from neighbor kid!

The girlfriend said to put it in her garage at night, I was tired and decided to just go to bed.
I come out to the parking lot Saturday morning... Low and behold: Neighborhood kid bike handle scratch (at least that is my supposition).

Two Questions:
-Is it worth doing myself?
-Ballpark figure on a detail shop doing it? (United States / MN)

So here are the pictures:
(first is the bike handle scratch, right in front of the drivers mirror, and second is another down by the ground on the plastic ground-FX)

Don't do this yourself. Take it to a professional. Those scratches are way too deep for touch up paint.
