Crayola Experience hosting birthday party

The one-year anniversary of Mall of America’s Crayola Experience will feature a variety of special activities and prize giveaways.

The celebration will also benefit Cheerful Givers, a White Bear Lake nonprofit that provides birthday gift bags to children utilizing services such as homeless shelters and food banks. For every 10 people who visit during the five-day celebration, Crayola Experience will make a donation to Cheerful Givers. In addition, visitors who donate an item to Cheerful Givers will receive $5 off admission. Donation items accepted include plush toys, books, games, puzzles, crayons, markers, stickers and new toys.

Each day of the celebration, which runs May 25-29, will feature a birthday ceremony at 5:25 p.m., and every 100th visitor will receive a Crayola plush toy.

Tickets are $19.99 at the door, $15.99 online and from 10-11 a.m. each day a $5.25 ticket is available with the purchase of a full-price admission.
