Crayola Factory

Yesterday Chad took the day off and we decided to take the kids to the Crayola Factory.  It was a bit of a trip but definitely worth it.  The kids, every one of them, has really been into "art" lately - coloring, painting, drawing, etc.  So we knew it would be a fun outing for them.

The kids loved that the building had crayons falling out of the box
 Coloring on the Dry E-race car
 Painting "alien spaceships" (aka paper plates) :)
 Playing with the "model magic"
 Coloring a page of Chloe with Cinderella
 Intently working....
...then being a cheese ball.
 We all loved doodling on the glowing wall.
 Yup, that's my boy.
 Inside the factory there is also a little waterworks museum where kids can put their boat through a "canal" and see how canals work. 
Chloe had a lot of fun with this too but ended up soaked! She didn't like it so she started to take her pants off right there in the museum...eek!
 All 3 kids....and Carter with chalk all over his pants
 Headed to look at the Crayola store (you know they're going to try to get you to buy something else...)  We resisted.  How many crayons do 3 kids need????
 By the wall of colors.  I don't know what's up with all the posing going on but what else would I expect from these 3???

Highly recommend going there if you have young kids.  For us - finding things that all 3 kids (at their various ages and developmental stages) can do (and/or enjoy doing!) is not always easy.  But this was fun for all!
