January and the first few weeks of 2019 are upon us, and those new year’s resolutions are still going strong. Every year I try to think of resolutions that work for our whole family and this was the first year that Madison gave us her input about her resolutions. She wanted to work on learning more and work on her chores, which her Echo Dot Kids Edition helps with daily!
We have always worked on chores with Madison and now that she is five she is really into them, especially now that she has been earning an allowance… she has even more interest! We made a to-do list on Madison’s Echo Dot Kids Edition and Alexa reminds her the items on her weekly chore list.
If you have an Amazon Echo product, you know just how easy Alexa is learn from. From asking her to play your favorite song, read the notes, or check the weather… she will instantly have the answer for you. The Echo Dot Kids Edition is built specifically for kids and comes with an Echo Dot, a year of FreeTime Unlimited, a kid-friendly case, and a 2-year worry-free guarantee. The Parent dashboard makes it easy to make your kiddos Amazon product, as safe as possible with parental controls.
Setting up a chore list is a simple as saying, “Alexa, create a list”. We have been trying to change them weekly and it has been awesome how excited Madison gets to complete the tasks on her chore list.
The lists aren’t just for kids though. Our Echo Plus helps us do just as much as Madison’s Echo Dot Kids Edition. We are able to set up grocery list, packing lists for when we travel or a simple to-do list. When going through our cabinets to make a grocery list I simple tell Alexa what to add to the list and then when I had to the store I can view the list on the Alexa companion app. How easy is that?
When we are talking about upcoming events or going through paperwork that was sent home from school, I often find myself telling Alexa. I tell Alexa to add the event to our calendar and it sync it to my calendar so I am never forgetting a special event or appointment.
Madison’s second resolution was wanting to continue to learn more, and she continues to be a little sponge. With Amazon FreeTime Madison can play games such as Name That Animal, Amazon Math or Speak Spell… to name a few. When you visit the FreeTime on Alexa featured skills page you can search for skills focused specifically on children’s education. Another favorite is the access to over 1000 kid-friendly audible books, so the learning never ends.
Alexa is making it easy for us to get on track this 2019, and the whole family is benefiting from her and keeping us organized! What is your favorite thing to do with Alexa?
