The Crayola Experience
|JJ at Crayola|
The boys and I went with Pop Pop Jim to the Crayola Experience in Easton, Pennsylvania. It was only 15 minutes from the house and it was fun! The parking isn’t too terrible, we were able to park right across the store at a parking garage. The fee wasn’t terrible either, it was about $18 per person and Jaxson was free because he is under the age of three. Parking fee was about $3 an hour as well!
My oldest JJ was super excited, he couldn’t even stand still waiting in line to get our tickets and tokens. Everything is on the second floor. They had a few different stations to make your crayola labels, the colors were: Red, Lime, Blue, and Purple. Once you got your crayon and label you take it to the table and swipe it as if you’re swiping a credit card to wrap it around the crayon.

We went to the 1:30 show and it was very interesting. The kids sat up front as a lady and two crayons discussed how they made crayons from wax, clay, and color pigments. At the end of the tour the kids got to grab a crayon. There were other awesome areas, one of our favorites was the station (Stomp and Play) where you color a sea animal and it sent it to a screen on the wall. Very cool. Another station JJ had fun with was the computer station (Color Magic) where you scan the page that you colored onto the computer. You could pick very cool backgrounds and even send it to your own personal email address!

There was even a toddler area for Jaxson! They had cool light up sticks–kind of like a lite brite–you could put into the wall. An area with activity cubes and a little play area you could climb around and have lots of fun. Within the same area they have an ice cream stand, sand art, and fabric art (Trading Post).

What to Bring

I wouldn’t worry about snacks or anything either, because they have stations with snacks and vending machines for dip and dots, soda products, and water.
Definitely worth the trip! I think there are other Crayola Experiences in Florida, Texas, and Minnesota–check it out!
