When the global COVID-19 pandemic began, Stone Soup implemented new programs and additional activities to keep young people engaged and creative. With schools closed and students cut off from friends and spending extended periods of time in isolation, sheltering in place, or on lockdown, we knew our readers and contributors would appreciate more ideas to keep them busy, and new ways of bringing them together with other members of the Stone Soup extended family. Some of these are activities you can do by yourselves or with siblings and other family members at home; others are Zoom classes where you can interact with other Stone Soup readers and writers. Everyone is welcome.
Now you can:
- take advantage of our catalogue of creativity prompts, with new ones published every week,
- submit to our monthly flash contest,
