Crayons are simply paper covered pieces of colored wax but they have provided endless joy throughout the world. In Easton, Pennsylvania, nestled near the confluence of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers, lies one of the most colorful places in the state. The Crayola Experience is an excellent place to visit for artists of all ages.

From the colorful pegboard of Toddler Town to the creativity station at Melt & Mold, where you can create your own souvenir out of your favorite color, The Crayola Experience is entertaining for kids of all ages. For the adults, it’s an irresistable trip down memory lane that will leave you wanting your own fresh box of crayons.

The Color Playground is located on the third floor. Here, kids can burn off some extra energy in a Crayola themed indoor playground.
