I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - The Crayola Factory

What: The Crayola Factory

Where:30 Centre Square
            Easton, PA

Our view: If your kids are into art, this is the place to go. Although you can learn about the way crayons are made here, it is more of an interactive art place than a museum. There are so many things to do, you can easily spend hours here. There is a gift shop on the premises where plenty of Crayola products are available. However, the prices are not any better than buying the items at any other store. It is generally open from 9:00 to 3:00 Tuesday to Friday and 9:00 to 5:00 Saturday and Sunday. It is closed January 1 -12. The cost is $12.00 per person, $11.00 for seniors and military and free for children under 2. There is not really much to do for babies anyway who would probably be more interested in trying to put the crayons and markers and stuff in their mouths than trying to create artwork. It usually gets crowded between 11 and 2. To ensure you get in on the day and time you want, it is best to make reservations in advance. It gets particularly busy in July and August and on holidays. Also, note there is no free parking. There is a parking garage nearby at a cost of $2.00 per hour or there is metered parking available on the local side streets. Also, note there is no restaurant in the factory. There is a picnic area so you may bring your own lunch. Also, there a number of local restaurants within walking distance. This is not a problem on a warm and sunny day, but may be more of an issue when the weather is not as nice. All in all, it is really fun place to take your kids unless they are not particularly into art in which case I would not recommend it.

And that's our view. For more information go to http://www2.crayola.com/factory/index.cfm.

Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
