Wooooohoooo!! I have been dying to go here for years and years and years!!! A few weeks ago Chris texted me and told me to pick a day/plan a trip to the Crayola Factory!!! I would have picked last week, but I didn’t want his knee to bug him too horribly. So yesterday was the day. (The other reason I chose yesterday is because it was my mommy’s birthday. She is a crayon-o-holic!!)
I can not even begin to tell you how much fun we had!! It is very hard to pick just a few pictures to share with ya’ll when I took 93 totally fun ones!! When we arrived we decided to sit down and see the how crayons are made show first…very fun!! We watched them make red crayons and purple markers! The rest of the Crayola Factory is like one big make your own craft project!!! We made dinosaur eggs, cards, did finger painting, painted with melted crayon wax, designed a tee shirt, played with modeling clay, made puppets and so much more!!
I had two favorite parts. First the puppet making. I love me a good craft project. I should have taken a good picture of my masterpiece when I was finished, but here is one of Avery and I making our puppets:
My other favorite part was this area where you danced and it put your image, in colors of course, on the wall. It was so neat!!
There was also a huge area of glass walls where you could write on them!! Writing on the wall!! Mom never lets me do that at home! Chris had fun having everyone stand on the other side so he could draw them!
Delaney wouldn’t stay still for hers:
Upstairs is the Canal Museum. To be honest we all rolled our eyes a little, but had heard it was fun so we went for it. There were several fun things to do!
Learning how boats travel through canals:
Getting our pictures taken on (or in) trains:
And everyone’s favorite, playing in itty bitty pieces of rubber:
A great deal of fun was had by all!! Thank you CLAD for taking us along!!!!
