Crayola Experience in Easton, PA is finally reopening on August 1! Enjoy a day filled with fun and color while staying indoors to beat the heat. There’s tons to do at Crayola Experience and it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser with your young artists.
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. While the old Crayola Factory shut down a few years back, it was completely revamped in 2013 with an experience your budding artists will love. Crayola Experience has 26 hands-on activities and attractions from creating spin art from melted wax and drawing on giant glowing art boards to molding a melted crayon into different shapes like a ring or racecar and turning a drawing into an animated creation. Your kids can even make a wax mold of their hand, plus name and wrap their own Crayola crayon.
When they’re 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 Café Crayola or the Snack Shack. Don’t miss out on the nearby Easton Farmer’s Market, the longest continuously-running open-air market in the country, or Easton Public Market, which offers outdoor dining.
There are new procedures in place at Crayola Experience to help keep guests healthy and prevent the spread of COVID-19. From temperature screenings to timed tickets, Crayola Experience is making sure you can enjoy the day while staying safe. Here’s what you can expect during your visit.
- Tickets and Entry: Tickets can be purchased online and will include a timed entry that will help keep the amount of visitors at 25% or less of the building’s capacity. You can still purchase tickets at the door but you may need to wait for the next entry time with tickets available. At the entrance, guests will receive a health screening and have their temperatures taken with no-touch thermometers. Guests may be denied entry based on the results of this screening. For a contactless security experience, visitors are asked to only bring in clear bags. At admission you’ll receive a bag with crayons and markers to use during your visit.
- Face Coverings and Sanitation: Everyone entering the building above the age of 3 is required to wear a face covering unless eating or drinking. Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the attraction and staff will frequently clean the facility and activity areas.
- Activities, Dining and Shopping: Certain activities, including The Color Playground, Toddler Town and character appearances, will not be open until further notice. Others, like theater shows, will have a reduced capacity and other changes to minimize contact. Café Crayola is open with seating spaced to allow for physical distancing. Additionally, tables and chairs will be sanitized between each use. The Crayola Store is also open and transaction counters will be cleaned between customers. Only cashless transactions will be accepted at this time.
