Need a fun place to go with your family in the Orlando area? Well, the Crayola Experience may be just what you are searching for! We had a blast checking out this new entertainment spot inside The Florida Mall last week!

With 25 hands-on activities, your kids will have plenty to keep them busy. Plus, there is a snack spot and little restaurant with plenty of seating for everyone. You could spend hours of your time enjoying all of the fun ways to draw, color and create.

I can’t believe there were so many stations with so many fun things to do, and let me just say that it is not only a good time for the little ones, us adults can enjoy it as well.

Out of the 25 areas, we found these to be pretty awesome:

Drip Art

Take a crayon and load it into the Drip Art machine. Watch as it melts and drips crayon wax onto your paper as it spins to create a swirly cool masterpiece. This station was really busy when we visited.

Art Alive!

Guests can create digital works of art and project them onto the wall. After seeing your completed work on the wall, walk up and touch your drawing to bring it to life! It is really magical and all of the kids and big kids that were in this station were having a great time – including my family and I!

Melt & Mold

This was so neat! If you would like to create a ring, shark or car souvenir out of crayon wax, be sure to stop at the Melt & Mold location! Just load your favorite crayon color into the machine and watch your crayon melt into a Crayola Experience keepsake!

Color Playground

Most kids love these types of play areas. It’s a great way for them to get some exercise by sliding, climbing and more, and this one is a fun crayon-inspired playset.

Wrap it up!

Out of everything, I have to say that our most favorite spot was this one! Choose between 4 different colored crayons, personalize your crayon wrapper, print it and wrap it around your crayon. Such a great item to take home so that you remember a fabulous visit!!!

If you just want to spend an afternoon or have a fun place to have a party for your child, the Crayola Experience is a great place to check out!! And, it is inside, so when it is too hot outside or rainy, stay nice and dry inside playing until your hearts content.
