Staying at home to raise your children has many benefits, but many mums want to earn some money on the side whilst their kids are napping or at school. Luckily, there are plenty of side hustles out there that are great for stay at home mums.
Here are five of the best.
You probably already help your kids with their homework, so why not help other kids too? Tutoring is a great side hustle as it can be done in-person or online. In-person tutoring can be advertised via your children’s school or clubs or even by networking with other parents. There are also lots of great opportunities to tutor online. Many online tutors startup with a tutoring agency but eventually go freelance so they can choose their clients and set their own rates.
2. Freelance Writing
If you have a way with words, freelance writing is a flexible side hustle that suits lots of work from home mums. Content writing agencies can offer plenty of articles and blogs for you to write. Once you have some experience under your belt, you can promote yourself as a content writer and set your own rates. Many websites and blogs need articles written specifically about parenting, so you could use your experience as a mum to make good money from writing.
3. Party Planning For Kids
If you’ve ever planned a party for your kid’s birthday, you’ll know all too well how much time and planning goes into creating a great kid’s party. But if you enjoyed it and pulled it off, kids party planning could be the side hustle for you. Party planners tend to charge based on the size of the event and what is involved. When setting your fees, you may also want to consider whether or not you will provide supplies, catering, and activities and if you’ll need to hire others to help out.
4. Virtual Assistant
Many business owners need a virtual assistant, or VA, to handle day-to-day admin such as replying to emails, writing social media posts, or managing spreadsheets. VAs can do their work from home and often have flexible working hours, making this a great side hustle for women with kids to care for. Some work from home mums are a VA for one business, whilst others are freelance VAs who work for a variety of businesses on a part-time basis. This blog post on how to start a business as a virtual assistant is great for mums hoping to break into this side hustle.
5. Virtual Personal Trainer
A virtual personal trainer, or VPT, helps others improve their fitness and health from the comfort of their homes. If you know how to run a great exercise class or can offer excellent nutrition and fitness advice, you could offer personal training online. You could even specialise in personal training for other stay at home mums who want to keep on top of their fitness. If you’re unsure where to start, this article on how to get started as an online personal trainer has lots of tips and tricks.
Do you have a flexible job too?

I found that the stress of trying to work part time took me away from being a homeschooling stay at home mom and it was never worth it. #KCACOLS

Some great suggestions. I’m not sure I’ve got the skill set to be a virtual personal trainer lol but being a virtual assistant really appeals to me.
Some good ideas here, though I might change it to ‘stay at home parents” #KCACOLS
That is true! Will do!
Very good ideas here! I freelance as a writer which has been great! #KCACOLS
You have got a good list of side hustles and flexibility with kids is very appealing x #kcacols

Gotta love the side hustle! A stay at home mum does so much already, they are the perfect people to be productive. As they saying goes, if you want something done, ask a busy person! Great ideas here. #KCACOLS
