Enter to win a trip to the Crayola Experience!

Crayons 1

Happy 110th Birthday Crayola!

Be the first to experience the all new Crayola Experience! Celebrating the 110th birthday of the original 8 pack crayons, the Crayola Experience is a four floor attraction with interactive exhibits located in Easton, Pennsylvania. Opening May 24th, your family could win an all expenses paid trip to experience the fun!

In anticipation you can learn about the original 8:

Black: The color of mystery

Orange: The color of creativity

Yellow: The color of happiness

Blue: The color of health and fitness

Purple: The color of imagination (my favorite)

Red: The color of fun and adventure

Green: The color of nature

Brown: The color of friendship

 

Click on the picture to enter the sweepstakes, and follow Crayola on their adventure and read more about the original 8. Each one has likes and dislikes, who knew?

Crayola was introduced  in 1903, originating as a pigment supply company, and in 1984 was acquired by Hallmark.

I have fond memories of begging my mom to “please buy me the bog box, the one with the sharpener” ;) There is nothing better than opening a fresh box of crayons, is there?

Look how far we have come since the original 8 box!

Crayola has increased in size to 120 crayons, retiring Blue Gray, Lemon Yellow, Orange Red, Orange Yellow, Violet Blue, Maize, Green Blue, Raw Umber, Thistle, Blizzard Blue, Mulberry, Teal Blue and Magic Mint.

Dong some research I discovered an artist who uses Crayola crayons as his primary medium. Look at one of the pictures, simply amazing!: You can view more of Don Marco’s (Master Crayon Artist)  photos on his website.
