We had such a great time at the colorful wonderland – Crayola Experience in Easton, PA. This interactive color explosion is four floors of crayon, marker, and interactive fun.
We arrived at 10:30 a.m. (about a half hour after the doors opened), and there were already lines at most of the activities. It was surprisingly busy for a weekday when school was in session.
We started on the fourth floor and made drip art paintings and melted crayon molds of rings and race cars. Strollers are not allowed on the fourth floor due to space issues, but there is a stroller parking area just outside the door. I was able to wear my youngest without any problems.
Next, we took the big, stroller-friendly elevator down to the third floor. There is a cool WaterWorks exhibit that teaches your little ones how canals and aqueducts work. They get to open and close the waterway doors, lift the levers and guide their boats through to the landing pad at the end. My kids really enjoyed this. It was tough for my daughter to reach everything, but they loved pushing their boats through the water.
There are lots of other activities to enjoy. Your children can make wax hands, climb on the Color Playground, and create art in the Activity Studio stocked with tons of crayons and markers. Every time you turn around, there are fun, new places to explore.
When you arrive, you’ll get two tokens with each ticket. There are a few different places to use those. You can buy molding clay, markers or a personalized crayon. We ran out of tokens before we realized the options we had. There are a few stations where you can buy more if you run out.
The second floor was where we spent most of our time. It is the best area for younger kids. My little ones loved climbing through the play area in Toddler Town and pulling the light up pegs in and out of the slots of the life-sized Light Bright. It brought back so many childhood memories for this mama.
Before lunch, we played a few rounds of Skee-ball and jumped in the photo booth to create our very own personalized coloring page. Then, we hopped back on the elevator to ride down to the Crayola Café. The café offers pizza, sandwiches, wraps, hot dogs and salads as main dishes and an assortment of chips and applesauce cups on the side. They had gluten free options as well. I didn’t think we’d be allowed to bring in our own food, but I noticed that lots of other families were enjoying their picnics in the café.
After lunch, we went up to play in the Modeling Madness room. The bright, communal tables were a great spot for my Littles to mold and create anything in their imaginations. They even asked me to make a rhino, shark and “tiny house” for them. No, I will not be sharing a photo of those creations!
Finally, we colored special pages that the Color Magic stations turned into dancing characters on the screens. Then, we snapped a few selfies with their cameras and emailed them home to share with everyone.
Crayola Experience has something for everyone, but it is best for ages 4 and up. Most of the activities are geared toward older kids and little kids need a lot of help and guidance to get the most out of the activities. If you plan to visit with multiple kids and ages, it is really helpful to have an extra set of hands. I took three toddlers, and it was a challenge to keep track of everyone at the same time.
