While we don't have any major travel plans in the works, I do love taking day trips where we get to step outside of our norm and explore local attractions. This past weekend we did so by exploring the Crayola Experience. Located in Easton, PA, this was only an hour-and-a-half journey from NYC where we quickly transported to a place of creativity.

Day Trip Adventures to the Crayola Experience

The Crayola Experience has four floors of interactive fun, my girls (ages 5.5 and 2) loved how they could create and learn everywhere they turned. We started our experience on the second floor where we learned all about the history of crayons and then went to the Wrap it Up section where the girls were able to make their own crayon labels! We then explored in Toddler Town where my younger daughter loved coloring and playing with lights. We also took a picture that was made into our very own coloring sheet!

Another highlight of this trip was our experience on the 4th floor where the girls and I enjoyed melting crayons at the Crayon Clinic that was then molded into fun shapes like rings, hearts and dinosaurs that we could take home. There was also a drip art section where crayons where melted down and we could create swirly-whirly masterpieces. We also loved the Meltdown section where we could create art from melted crayons.

The third floor was also really fun where the girls loved the interactive color playground and the water works section. Personally, I loved the Doodle in the Dark area where the kids enjoyed drawing on backlit doodle boards and waking up crayon pals on a screen. My younger daughter also loved the interactive floor where games appeared every few minutes that responded to her movements.

We also loved the town of Easton where we enjoyed ice cream at the Purple Cow Creamery and a short walk around.

After a busy day of creating and learning, we loved our experience in the world of art with Crayola and we can't wait to explore again very soon.
