Spring Break 2017 Day 7

We survived our colossal snowstorm and got a ton of rest so the next morning we were up and ready to go fairly early.  Our first stop when we left the resort was Chick Fil A.  They have the most amazing breakfasts!  The chicken biscuit with cheese and the chicken burrito without pepper and onions both (not at the same time) make me a happy girl.

If you weren’t on the interstate the roads were a little slick but since we took the main road most of the way we made good timing.  Our destination was Easton Pa and we were going to the Crayola Experience.  Finding a parking spot was simple because not many people were out and about yet and another perk to that is that the garage wasn’t charging for parking due to the storm the day before.  This worked out great for us.

The outside of the building was fascinating and we knew we were in for a good time from the moment we saw it.  




Since we got there, when they first opened they recommended that we start on the 4th floor and work our way down.  The employees informed us we would avoid any crowds that came later in the day if we did this.  We were also given two coins each and told that 2 of the activities would need coins if we wanted to participate in them.


There were sooooooo many different stations that it took us about 3 1/2 hours to go through the whole building.  A few of the things we enjoyed were drip art (where you melt a crayon), we also loved the show they did about making crayons, and Isabelle REALLY enjoyed the lesson where she got to help the instructor.  



 





The two pictures below are from the show on how crayons are made: 




One of our favorites was getting to make a crayon and decorating the label (this one used a coin.





Doodle in the Dark was awesome.  The kiddos loved the dancing crayons, the writing board and the floor that changed .  





We also really enjoyed making puzzles from our artwork and making our art projects come to life on the wall.  My kids range in age from 7-9 and everyone plus my husband and myself enjoyed our time at the Crayola Experience.

 Of course before we left we had to visit the store where we got a ton of really great souvenirs for a very reasonable price.
