With many districts extending their spring breaks, you may be looking for something to keep the kids occupied when they are home from school during the coronavirus outbreak. A child’s imagination is the best plaything. Over the coming days and weeks, the Story Pirates are ramping up production on some exciting digital content to entertain and educate kids and families stuck at home.

The Story Pirates are a nationally renowned group of top comedians, musicians, best-selling authors, and incredible teachers with fifteen years of experience creating content that celebrates the imaginations of kids. In addition to the popular Story Pirates podcast, they are adding the Story Pirates Creator Club, a membership program that provides exclusive creativity building activities for children to work on at home. 

These initiatives will launch next week as part of the Story Pirates’ new and original daily programming for quarantined families: 

The first-ever limited feature daily radio show, Story Pirates Radio, featuring fan-favorite songs, play-at-home games, hilarious bits, and listener call-in kid interviews will keep kids busy in between podcast episodes. They will also live stream creative writing lessons called Story Sparks. This acclaimed common core-aligned curriculum teaches the building blocks of creative writing, including hero story workshops, mystery workshops, expository writing lessons and more. 

Grownups can also submit stories written by kids to the Story Pirates. All submissions will receive a handwritten reply from the Story Pirates.
