Many of these are ideal for a fun filled family day out that is both educational and entertaining including the popular Crayola Factory Tour. Younger children in particular will delight in the Crayola Experience although older kids and adults will also enjoy the magic of this creative encounter!
The Crayola Factory is located right in the center of downtown Easton, which is within easy reach of Sellersville and this is advertised as the ‘only place in the world where the magic of Crayola comes to life’ through a colorful adventure that will enchant visitors of all ages. Color, chemistry and technology come together here and creative juices can run freely as visitors play, explore and learn through a series of interactive displays and exhibits. The Crayola Experience has been entertaining hundreds of thousands of visitors in the area for several years however thanks to its revamp in 2013 – which added 18 new attractions that enable your child to explore art and express their creativity to the full while appreciating color in a totally new way – it is now bigger and bolder than ever before. There is so much to see and do here that it will take a whole day of your time just to explore all that a visit to the factory, has to offer as there are so many different activities available to suit all age groups and interests. Older children can learn new skills and many will enjoy working alongside a parent to create their own cartoon, by building a custom marker for animation that can then be transferred onto a huge digital projector for viewing. Younger kids may be interested to see how crayons are made and this is demonstrated in a live theatre show which stars Crayola’s animated friends Scarlet and Turk, plus there is even the opportunity to create your very own Crayola crayon, personalized so that it is unique to you! The factory is open all year round however operating hours vary depending on the time of year so daily times should be checked on their website prior to your visit and their online ticket booking facility is available 24 hours a day from $14.99 with concessions and discounts given for the likes of group bookings and annual multi-tickets purchased.
