Ways to supplement income while on maternity leave?

Lucky me, I am a per diem employee. I work about 30 hours a week, but because I am per diem I'm not benefitted (my husband's benefits are great, so we're not without benefits).

Because of this, I am only taking a 6 week maternity leave as I have no sick/vacation time and no short term disability. I did sign up for short term disability after I started my new job in April, but it won't be effective for this pregnancy.

I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for supplementing our income those 6 weeks while I'm on maternity. I have sold Avon in the past and HATED the company by the time I quit, so that is not an option. I thought about Tupperware but you still have to pay a minimum of $80 to get a starter pack (and then hope you do well enough in sales to earn money). I do some online surveys and whatnot from time to time for extra cash, but it doesn't add up to much, just fun money.

Any ideas? Thanks!
