In the Story Classroom this month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Lost + Found.
A few months ago we changed up our kit pages and each subscription now has it's own shop page that you can check out here: Story Kit™, Story Stamp™, and Digital Story Kit™ (there are links to each one at the bottom of each page). As a subscriber you also have kit pages for each of your subscriptions located under your User Name in the top right corner of the page (this is where you go to select any Add-On purchases to be shipped with your box between now and June 14th at 11:59PM Eastern).
Here are a few thoughts about this particular theme:
Life is a series of adventures that include losing and finding. Sometimes we are literally lost and need help to find the way home again. Sometimes we feel lost and have to work hard at finding ourselves (or letting other people help us) again. Sometimes we lose things (people, stuff, etc) and hopefully we are able to find those things again in one way or another. And sometimes things are just lost and we find magic, love, etc in new people and places and things. This month we are investigating stories related to being lost and found and the ways in which those experiences have impacted our lives.
Initial story ideas for the Lost + Found theme include:
- What is something you have lost and what is something you have found? Are they the same thing?
- Throughout our lives we all feel lost (figuratively rather than literally) at certain points. How did you find yourself again?
- When was the last time you “got lost” in terms of getting out of your normal routine? Love it? Hate it?
ADD-ON OPTION FOR SUBSCRIBERS
A couple months ago we introduced a new option for subscribers to purchase from a limited selection of Add-On products and have those shipped with your monthly subscription. Between the 13th at 12:00am Eastern and the 14th at 12:59pm Eastern, subscribers can add these products to their boxes at no additional shipping cost - based on availability. Check out our 2017 Subscription Update page here for more details. Depending on product availability subscribers may be able to purchase the Add-On's after the Add-On period has ended and regular shop shipping rates will apply because they will ship separately from the kit.
If you are a current Subscriber you can select + purchase Add-On's via your new drop-down menu access under your user name in the top right corner of the site. If you subscribe to more than one you will have a Box for each subscription and the ability to purchase Add-On's for each one.
If you are new to the Story Subscription program, check out all the details here.
If you are already a subscriber the content in the classroom will be available to you on the 15th just as in the past.
Here's a look at the Story Kit™ contents for Lost + Found:
Here are the optional Add-Ons for subscribers of the Lost + Found Story Kit™ theme. Two of these products are exclusive to subscribers at this time (but may be added to the shop in the future) and the other is from the shop. Some months we will have only new theme-based products as part of the Add-On selection and other months we might include a staple item from the shop.
Here's a video overview of the Story Kit™ and Add-On options this month:

Digital Story Kit™ subscribers also have four Add-On options available (if you subscribe to both the Story Kit™ and the Story Stamp™ these should also be available to you for purchase):
