Easy Jobs for Stay-at-Home Moms

If you're a mom who stays at home with her kids, you can make extra money in a number of ways. Depending on your talents and preferences, a wide range of jobs can allow you to work from home and take care of your kids. Many jobs let you set your own hours. You can work for yourself or for a company.

  1. Babysit

    • Take care of a child or two from the same family on a full or part-time basis. The children can come to your house as many parents prefer a home atmosphere to a day care center for their children. The rules for how many children you can take care of without having to become a licensed day care provider will likely vary from state to state. Contact your state's Department of Health and Human Services about its child care licensing laws.


    • While your children sleep, play or watch movies, you can work on your favorite craft. If you knit, sew, make jewelry or do another type of craft, you can sell the crafts at online sites like Etsy or other classifieds sites online.


    • Medical transcriptions training programs can cost in the range of $1,000 to $2,000. Once training is completed, however, a stay-at-home mom can work when her children are asleep or at school. Many medical transcription employers require some actual transcription experience in a health care provider's office. Other types of transcription jobs are available online as well, including legal and technical.

    Teach or Tutor

    • Online schools and tutoring sites need people with experience and degrees in all types of subjects to help students with their school work. Some online schools hire teachers on a part-time basis. Online English as a second language tutoring is another popular way to make some extra money. You can also set up your own online class teaching a skill you have on sites such as ForteMall or BuddySchool. Teaching or tutoring online requires you to have a quiet place to work for a while.


    • Freelancing is another way to make some extra money. Editing, writing content for websites, building websites, being a virtual administrative assistant or doing graphic design can help you earn income from home. Websites such as Work at Home Mom can help you identify what kind of work you could do as a freelancer.

      Online career options that allow you to work for a company include being a virtual customer service representative, being a salesperson and working for a company as a virtual assistant.
