Hi am a mom working full time out of the house every day. I would very much want to take a 2-3 month break in the summer but still want to make some money. Am looking for ideas how to earn like 5k in a few weeks.

Do an after hours camp. My daughter did this one summer and made a fortune. Two days a week from 5 pm to 6:30. Each session they had a different fun activity. Baking, food decorating, crafts, scavenger hunt, field day. It was for one age group (think 10-11 yr old), but you could do four days a week and open it to two age groups separately.
She gave a discount to families who committed to all 8 sessions of the month, but also offered a pay as you go as long as they committed for the week on motzei shabbos.

You can babysit in your house or do overnight babysitting.

Just jumping on everyone else's ideas- but a between school and camp daycamp. I did one when I was in high school and earned about $1500. Charged $150 for 10 kids for the week. I was open one Thursday or Friday the week before or after and used that money for expenses. Don't remember full details.

It depends what your talents are...

You can babysit- if you have like 10 kids charging 5 per hour, you can make a lot of money.

Sounds like a safe environment. Where can I sign my kids up for such a ratio.

She can’t do most of these jobs while working out of the house full time.

You might be able to take special needs kids into your home for weekends. But I’m pretty sure You’d have to do about 18-20 weekends to earn 5k in NYC, not sure about other places. And it’s not so easy to find respite work.

I have a business and sometimes do flash sales, that helps too.

Do you like and know how to care for dogs? You could dogsit in your home via Rover.com off and on throughout the year. Can make anywhere from $30 to $70+ per night. A friend of mine does this as her side gig and loves it. But she really likes dogs.
