Parents oftentimes need to make some extra money during various times in their lives. No matter whether you are a stay-at-home mother or a working mother who wants to generate some additional income, finding ways to get some extra money can be difficult sometimes.
Ideally, any kind of side job would be a minimal drain on time, reasonably easy, yet still economical for the resources put in. Don't despair about your finances though. There are a number of jobs that meet that criteria that, nevertheless, still allow you to have free time and more expenditures. Here, we’ve gathered the top 4 jobs that moms can take on to earn extra money from home

Tutor
Tutoring is easily one of the sleeper hits of this list. This is because many modern adults have proficiency in at least one basic skill that students require, whether that be math, English, science, or something else. As a mom, you are also well equipped to manage and guide younger learners, which is exactly what tutoring calls for.

In addition, you are not solely limited to a certain demographic of student. Depending on your skill level, you could help tutor a student in kindergarten, high school, or even college. Of course, college-level tutoring is the most likely to pay the highest, since the skill level requirement is arguably higher than high school or grade school. If you can tutor students online, then you can do some work while you have a couple of free hours.
 
Freelance
There are a whole host of companies and corporations out there that need someone to write for them, and you are the person to do it. Depending on your familiarity with freelancing, you can either attempt to contact companies directly to see if they would like your services or you could sign on with a web-based company that would send articles for you to write. Either way, the hours are flexible and, depending on how much time you invest, you can make a good amount of money within their pay cycle. Freelancing is a great opportunity for moms who need flexible schedules to maintain a balance in their homes lives.

When looking for a company to work with, be sure to determine whether they pay by the hour, by the word, or for every project that you complete. You don't want to spend hours on a project only to get paid a measly amount for it.

Take Photos
Although it may seem unlikely, if you happen to have a passion for photography, that can make you some money as well. After all, stock photos don't appear out of nowhere. Those various stock photo websites pay people to take photos for them. Some pay by the photo, and others pay based on the amount of downloads that a particular photo gets.

If you are an artsy type and already have a database full of pictures that you just happen to like, that is potentially a bank that is waiting for you to tap into it. Moms are also likely to have loads of photos that might be just what the stock photo sites are looking for.

Bake
If you browse many of the project-sharing websites, you can find all sorts of interesting (and tasty) concoctions that other people have constructed with their talents at baking. Unfortunately for many other parents, they may not have the time nor skill to bake those handcrafted delights by themselves. That is where you come in.

Oftentimes, it only takes posting various pictures of food products that you bake on a form of social media to encourage others to ask about them. After that, you can start to host your own permanent form of a bake sale.

Stay in and Make Some Money!
This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the potential jobs that a stay-at-home mother can choose to do. These are just some of the more essential jobs that fit the criteria of low time investment, ease depending on your skill level, and reasonable payout for the time invested. However, there are certainly more work from home jobs out there. All they need to be discovered is a little bit of creativity.
