About

Welcome to Coffee Cups and Crayons!  Fun and useful ideas for modern parents.

(Actually, old-fashioned parents will love them too.  I promise.)

I’m so glad you stopped by!  My name is Megan and I am a former elementary-high school-special ed-SAT prep teacher turned mom and online writer.  And my house is indeed full of coffee cups and crayons. And many, many other odds and ends.

But enough about my addiction to caffeine and my ambivalence to stray art supplies.  You’re really  here to find fun thingsEasy thingsGreat ABC activities and cool holiday crafts. Birthday party ideas, acts of kindness and family travel tips.  And you will because well, that’s what we do around here.

Why should you care what I have to say?  Just because you like my ideas.  No other reason.  While I do have many education certifications (Elementary Ed, Special Ed, Reading Specialist and Family and Consumer Sciences) I only know what has and hasn’t worked for me.

A success in our house may very well bomb in yours.  But hey, that’s part of the fun.  And the process.  Because that’s why Coffee Cups and Crayons is really here, to be a place to share.  And the sharing and the process is what’s important not the just perfect craft.  Although perfect crafts are pretty great too.
