We are just now wrapping up our summer vacation, and we had such a great time. It was our first mini road trip, and the destination was PA. We chose this are because we felt it offered a good mix of kid-friendly activities and learning experiences for everyone.
So, our first stop was the Crayola Experience which used to be the Crayola Factory in Easton, PA on July 2. You could honestly spend all day long here, but we spent about three hours creating different art projects before heading out.
After we received our tokens, we went straight up to the fourth floor to do things with melted crayons. I read that this area can sometimes have lines, so it is better to go there before it gets to crowded.
Next we visited the canal exhibit. This was so much fun but also a lot of work. It took us a little while to push our four boats through the locks. I think we all learned a lot from this exhibit.
Next we went to make our own puzzles while Mia spent some time in the play area.
Next stop painting.
…okay….back to painting.
We finished the day by learning all about how crayons are made. It was interesting to see the process, but Ten and I couldn’t help but laugh at how unenthusiastic the guy doing the show was. The kids didn’t seem to mind though.
After the show, we made a few more crayons and then headed further into PA to our camp site. The girls loved Crayola and want to go back already! It’s too bad we live so far away.
