Spark: Once Upon a Jar

Choose your own adventure

Choose your own adventure in whimsical storytelling experience Once Upon a Jar.

A special visitor, Stephen, arrives in the classroom with a suitcase full of old gifts – some mysterious jars from birthdays long past. Each jar contains a distinct smell and countless story possibilities. Students shape the narrative, bringing their far-fetched ideas to life, before joining Stephen on a treasure hunt to find the most mysterious smell of all.

Imagination leads the way in this scented adventure.
