Have You Been To The Crayola Experience?

Hey Cuties,

The family and I set out on a Saturday road-trip to Easton, Pennsylvania.  It was a beautiful fall day to drive 3 hrs. and 30 minutes along the countryside of Pennsylvania to the Crayola Experience.  

I received complimentary tickets to visit the Crayola Experience.

After 3.5 hours and one food stop, we arrived at our destination.

Of course, the column looks like a crayon, duh! The Manchild is all about the serious face pose while #LittleCutLips is all smiles.

Crayola Experience

The definition…

When I found out Crayola was only a short drive away I had to visit. Crayola is a staple in everyone’s childhood so I knew we would all enjoy the experience.

Big Blue

World’s Larget Crayon

DOB: October 11, 2003 Color: Blue Weight: 1,500 Length: 15 feet Diameter: 16 inches

# of Crayola Crayons used: 123,000 blue Crayola crayons gathered from children around the country, who contributed their “leftolas” in an effort to help break the current world record.

Coloring Capacity: You could color a straight line for about 10 miles, or cover an area the size of a football field.

Crayola Experience

After learning about how Crayola makes crayons they gave us a freshly made red crayon.

I didn’t take as many pictures as I should but I wanted to be in the moment with my family. Babe and I did everything the kids did. Crayola Experience is a very hands-on experience for EVERYONE.

Wrap It Up

Wrap It Up: I was looking forward to this exhibit the most. After watching how crayons are made we got to come up with our own unique Crayola crayon! Get into the MimiCuteLips Shocking Pink color.

The Manchild went for a shade of blue for his crayon.

He selected the alien because it looks almost like a ninja. He named his crayon NinjaNas.

Babe was helping LittleCuteLips make her crayon.

Color Magic

Color Magic: This station was really cool. You color a picture (bottom left corner) and then you bring it to the computer and it brings it to life. Once it is on the screen you can select your background and move your image around. The Manchild’s work was identical to the picture.

Crayola Experience

Art Alive!

Art Alive: This exhibit made me feel like a kid again. You use the digital tablets to color a picture or draw your own character. Once you finish you submit it and it shows up on the huge Art Alive wall.

Now the Manchild’s art-work is out there floating on the art wall.

Be a Star

Be a Star: This exhibit allows you to turn yourself into your very own Crayola coloring page. We did a family picture with a plain background. Then we all did silly individual shots with a creative background.

Cool Movies

Cool Moves: This was fun, I think Babe had more fun than the kids. As you moved around the colors would move around you.

Meltdown: Was cool, you put our crayon color of choice into a machine. It melts it down into a mold. As you see we made rings and a car.

Crayola Experience

Drip Art

Drip Art: Allows you to create a swirly-whirly masterpiece with melted crayon wax. You select two crayons for this work of art, and you control the speed and splatter thus controlling your design.  The machine you use is similar to the one we used at the Meltdown.

Water Works

Water Works: Turned into a competition between my to. You have to maneuver and splash your way through an 85-foot water table.

Crayola Store

We purchased a lot of things at the store, of all the things we purchased this was my favorite. The Multicultural box of crayons. It has every shade you need to color your skin. Every try and draw yourself and you just can’t find your perfect shade? Now you can.

Crayola Experience

See you next time…

We had a lot of fun and we still didn’t do everything. You get a real hands-on experience. There is staff to guide you, but YOU do it all and I liked that.  The building is 4 levels of activity. Although we visited the Easton, PA location you can get the Crayola Experience in Plano, TX, Orlando, FL,  and Minneapolis, MN.

    Love the original crayons! We have this at the Mall of America but I still haven’t been. My gbabies would enjoy this though so I should look into it.

  2. Candy

    We haven’t had the pleasure of going to a crayon event. Fun for the entire family

  3. Jeanette

    I have never heard of this please. I mean I have heard of Crayola I just have not heard of this place. It would be fun to explore. We are all in they create a family so something like this would be right up our alley!

    I have to admit I had no idea there was a crayola experience, but how fun does it look for kids who love to colour!

  5. Carol Speake

    I’ve never been to the event but it sure looks fun. Your pictures are great and show the kids really getting into the occasion.
