A few months ago we were invited to a special launch event for the Crayola Experience in Plano, TX!
It was unlike anything I have ever been to and we had an absolute blast. There were endless things to do and from 10am to 2pm we didn’t even fit in every activity there and the attraction was closed to the public so there were no lines.
The Crayola Experience is truly jammed packed with fun and you could totally spend an entire day here with your kiddos.
Things to Do at The Crayola Experience in Plano, TX
The best way I know how to share with you the awesomeness of THe Crayola Experience is just by telling you what they have to offer. Here is a list of some of their awesome activities:
The Activity Studio
Here, there are tables and chairs with traditional paper, scissors, and colors for kids to sit down and create whatever they want.
This was one of our favorite rooms at The Crayola Experience. You are given a tablet when you go in and the room is set up with various stations. Each station has a puzzle or riddle that you must solve using the tools given to you and the tablet.
It was super fun and one of the stations that Braylee did over and over again.
Be a Star
At this station, you can turn yourself into your very own color page! You take a picture and then a sketch of your image is printed out for you to color!
I brought this one home and pinned it up in my office.
I guess they knew you’d be spending an entire day here because The Crayola Experience has its very own cafe with lots of lunch and snack choices.
In an augmented reality experience, bring your very own creation to life!
This is one of the stations that we didn’t get to, but it looks SUPER cool.
Color Playground & Toddler Town
This is one of the attractions that I had to drag Braylee away from. Color Playground is a 2 story playground and Toddler Town is a toddler version of the playground with slides and other fun things.
Like I said, Braylee LOVED this part and I was able to just sit back on the bench and let her have a blast with the other kids.
This is a HUGE bin with Crayola colors in it and coloring sheets for kids (and adults!) to sit down and enjoy.
This station allows you to become a dancing crayon. You stand in the designated area in front of a large screen and when you move the crayon on the screen moves too!
Crayon Factory Show
Here you can watch a Crayola crayon being made LIVE with real factory equipment!
I loved watching this show, but Braylee did get antsy about halfway through. She is only 3 though so older kids might enjoy it more.
Another one of our favorites that we did several times! Using a machine, you melt your chosen crayons and use the melted wax to create a spinning colorful creation. We loved seeing the end result of different color combinations in the machine.
It is one of those projects that you have to do yourself to get the whole experience. It is hard to explain, but super fun to do!
Standing in front of a large screen, you can put yourself in a jumbo kaleidoscope!
Melt & Mold
This was one of our favorites too! You pick your favorite color and then use a machine to melt your crayon into a cool shape!
We made a racecar and a ring!
Here you can melt your favorite Crayola color and paint a masterpiece with the melted wax!
