The freebie that The Krazy Coupon Lady readers went krazy for in 2022 is back this year! To celebrate National Crayon Day on March 31, 2023, Crayola is giving away 1 million crayons, which breaks down to 6,250 32-count boxes of crayons. Unfortunately, this is an in-person event at Crayola’s five locations across the U.S., and you must register now for this freebie.
While you can register now, the dates for the free crayon box pickup starts March 31 and ends May 31 and only while supplies last, so find out how to get this freebie before it’s too late.

Five Crayola locations are participating in the National Crayon Day free box of crayons event.
Here are the five locations participating in this event:
- Chandler, Arizona
- Easton, Pennsylvania
- Mall of America (Bloomington, Minnesota)
- Orlando, Florida
- Plano, Texas
Once you register here, you’ll need to download a voucher for the giveaway. Then you have to pick a date to pick up your free crayon box and select your 32 crayon selections at one of the stores listed above.
You’ll get to decide what 32 crayon colors to choose from on Crayola’s “Pick Your Pack” wall located at each Crayola Factory. Looking at the Easton, Pennsylvania location, I see pickup times available the whole month of April and May from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Once I added my desired date to my cart, I saw the amount as $0 and was able to book the free experience. There’s a limit of two per household, and the sign-up process is a first-come, first-serve basis. It’s important to note that your selected day CANNOT be rescheduled.
You can get a free crayon box at the Crayola storefront, but the factory requires an admission fee.
Your voucher gets you a free box of 32 crayons, but it does not get you admission to the Crayola Experience. Visit the Crayola store at each of the participating locations and redeem your voucher for a free crayon box at the storefront. However, to participate in Crayola’s colorful attractions, a ticket for admission is required.

In 2023 participants can also choose colors from Crayola’s Colors of Kindness crayons line for their free box of crayons.
Crayola announced that starting this year, participants can also choose NEW colors in their free 32-count box of crayons from the Crayola Colors of Kindness crayon line. In a statement, Crayola said they are also “partnering with local nonprofit organizations to donate over $150,000 worth of Colors of Kindness crayons and Crayola Experience tickets to families in our communities.”
