The Crayola Experience – Easton, PA

As a part of Brooks’ 3rd Birthday celebrations, we decided to make a special trip to check out the Crayola Experience in Easton, PA and it was SO COOL, I had to do a little blog post on it to share.

Side Note: This post is NOT sponsored at all, just thought it would be fun to share our day at Crayola – If you are in the area or looking for something fun to do with the kids, definitely go!

I wasn’t quite sure what the are range at the Crayola Experience would be – I heard a few different things, but really it had something for everyone – Graham at 1.5, Brooks at 3 – definitely something for the older kids and myself and my parents who came along for the fun really enjoyed ourselves as well. All ages for sure! 

First up – the building! Yellow, colorful and cute! Definitely screams creativity and fun! 

Brooks was PUMPED!

And I also have to note that kids under 3 were FREE. Brooks was 2 days shy of turning 3 so he and Graham got in free, which was awesome. 

So the Crayola Experience is 3 floors – we were told to start from the top and work our way down. Our first stop was a melting craving spinning art creation!  Brooks and Graham each picked some crayon colors our and made spin art – I now have them proudly displayed on my desk, they are really cute! 

Next up –   we melted crayons  into different shapes! Brooks decided on a dinosaur and it was really cute to watch Brooks watch the crayon be melted into the mold and set.

Such a cute little dinosaur crayon creation!

Next up we paused the arts and crafts to stretch our legs and let the littles run around. Brooks caught site of a rather large play area and had to climb his little heart out all up around and over the place! Again, can’t believe the kids were free because this was totally their jam!

Next we hit up the dark room to do some glow in the dark drawing.

Then the boys did some dancing with the crayons – the crayon picked up the littles movement and mimicked them. Graham had a really fun time with this!

Another cool thin in this room was the interactive floor that had different games you could play. The boys LOVED this.

The games changed every few minutes so it was constantly keeping them on their toes!


Then we made some puzzles! You draw whatever you want on the pages, put it through this machine and it cuts it up into a puzzle! So cute!

Then we went to ANOTHER play area which was more for the younger kids. This was awesome because Brooks and Graham ran around like crazy, which was just what they needed since Easton, PA was about 1.5 hours away from Philly. It was a long day in the car so them being able to run around for a bit and explore was much needed.

Then we hit up the water play area, each little got a crayon boat and you had to get it from one side of the river to the other, using the locks and bridges. If you’ve been to the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia , its similar to that! 

Next stop was an interactive room where you could draw something and then put in this machine which would bring it to live onto a computer, and you could move it. Pretty cool stuff, but a little advanced for the littles.

We just took a group selfie instead!

My favorite part was that we each got to make our own personalized crayons – such a cute little keepsake! For the price of admission for the older kids and adults, you can defiantly get your money’s worth in terms of all the art you get to make, keep and take home with you in a bag they give you when you first walk in to keep it all together. Really organized – love it!

Brooks and Graham picked their colors for their presonalized crayons and they made one for Dad – when I asked Brooks what we should put on Daddy’s Crayon, he said “Daddy’s Crayon” – so thats what Charles got!

I made a little crayon with love for the blog!

And Her Little Crayon Too

All in all we had an amazing day at the Crayola Experience.

I have a new love for crayons {markers are the worst} and Brooks came home LOVING drawing on everything. It’s his new thing to do when he’s waiting for me to make a meal in the kitchen. And I love him drawing and creating new things!

And going on a Friday in January was perfect – it wasn’t crowded at all! Lots of space to explore and move, great for the littles. Apparently the summer months can be a little crazy here, so if you are looking for a winter activity, add it to your list!

We will be back for sure!

Have you ever been to the Crayola Experience? Is it on your list of things to do?
