I'm not sure if I've ever told you this but I am NOT a morning person.
Really, not at all.
Unlike my husband who's up at 5 every morning (I know! He's crazy :), I would rather snuggle under the covers in hopes that the world will reconsider it's notion of early starts and just let us all get a little more shut eye.
I'm not the only one who thinks a little more sleep is needed -- have you read the new recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics to let middle school and high school students start their day later?
Where's the petition? I'm signing!
So what do you do to wake up a non-morning person and get her ready for a crazy day?
Yep, a good cup of coffee.
And like many, my kids just LOVE the smell of coffee beans and freshly brewed java.
Thus, our round-up of some super-fun and wonderfully scented coffee activities and crafts that the kids can enjoy as you sip your morning coffee.
So if you are a java fan, pour yourself a cup and let the kids enjoy a morning treat too!
