We made our way to downtown Easton, PA on New Year's Eve to The Crayola Experience for their New Year's Eve all day celebration, that concluded with a 12-ft. "Crayon Drop", and fireworks display!
Live music helped to fuel the fun energy of the party (The School Of Rock also played periodically throughout the day in another area). We all got in the spirit of the season with the varying creative opportunities available, as we made our way through the exhibits and craft stations.
Of course, no visit to The Crayola Experience would be complete without a stop at the World's Largest Crayon Caddy (pictured above) to color one (or all) of their seasonal coloring pages (several choices provided at the Crayon Caddy). This is always a huge hit with our daughter when we visit the Crayola Experience!
We all had a blast creating 2012 Happy New Year party hats (pictured above left). Each guest was provided the opportunity to make their own crown style hat, and was provided with a variety of tools to customize their creations. Crayons, markers, streamers, ribbon, construction paper, scissors, and glue, helped the kids (and the kids at heart) create something truly memorable and unique.
After we were all decked out in our celebratory hats, we headed over to one our favorite area to paint (the incredible conveyor style drying machine ensures that painted art is dry and ready to go in just under two minutes!). The kid's loved using the large easy to handle foam paint stamps (various styles of snowflake paint stamps were available) to make beautiful Winter themed works of art.
THE NEW EXHIBITS AT THE CRAYOLA EXPERIENCE:
New Year's wasn't the only reason to celebrate at the Crayola Experience December 31st! The Crayola Experience unveiled two brand new exhibits, that kid's are going to (and did) go absolutely crazy for! The Crayola Dry Erase Car (pictured above) is absolutely AWESOME! This entire (antique inspired) car is one great space for the kid's to get creative on! That's right! The entire car, in actuality is the creative base. Little one's will enjoy decorating and designing on the Dry Erase Car with Crayola dry erase markers and crayons.
Disney and Marvel character enthusiasts are sure to delight in having their picture taken in the brand new "Crayola Story Studio"! By standing in front of a themed screen, the computer takes a picture of your child and prints out a themed coloring page with your child's and the Character's image. With choices that include Disney's Cinderella, Disney Pixar's Cars Lightening McQueen and Spiderman, this is sure to become a fast favorite and popular exhibit at The Crayola Experience this year.
With a host of family friendly activities, live music, and the all around magic, that is Crayola, the New Year's Eve Party at The Crayola Experience was the perfect way to ring in the New Year!
Wishing you a year filled with creativity, wonderment, magic, and endless possibility.
