Crayola has a long history in Easton that dates back to the early 20th century when Binney & Smith Company made slate pencils, chalk and the first crayons at an Easton water-powered grist mill.  The old Crayola Factory shut down a few years back and was completely revamped in 2013 with an experience your budding artists will love. Crayola Experience has 26 hands-on, interactive activities and attractions. The kids can make spin art with melted wax, mold a melted crayon into a ring or racecar, draw on giant glowing art boards, climb on a 2-story Crayola-themed playground complete with a chalkboard floor and turn a paper drawing into a live animated creation. Your kid can even make a wax mold of their hand, plus name and wrap their own Crayola crayon.

When they’re are all colored out, stop by the gift shop (there’s a huge wall full of crayons that you can pick and choose from to make your own custom box!) or grab a bite at Cafe Crayola or the Snack Shack. Before or after you go, consider stopping at the Easton Farmer’s Market, the longest continuously-running open-air market in the country, or Easton Public Market, an indoor venue packed with a variety of vendors. The farmer’s market is across the street from Crayola, and the public market is around the corner.
