December is by far the busiest time of year for our family. Not only is it our company's busiest time of the year, but it's also the time of the year our family sets out to participate in as many holiday traditions and events as we can. Meaning, we spend an awful lot of time in the car. You can imagine how challenging this can be with four young and antsy children. I can't count the number of times I've heard, ‘Are we there yet?' this year.
Thankfully though, we've discovered the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet which is perfect for keeping our kids engaged and learning on our adventures, even when they least expect it. The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet is packed full of educational and entertaining content kids love and connects easily to any vehicle's Wi-Fi. But, don't worry if your vehicle doesn't have Wi-Fi, or if you're in an area where Wi-Fi is not available. With Offline Mode, you can download content before you leave so you never have to worry about finding a connection for your child to enjoy their favorite content.
Here are a few of the ways we're keeping holiday traditions alive with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet, even during our busiest times.
Keeping Holiday Traditions Alive with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition
When it comes to holiday traditions, Gracie is by far my most nostalgic child. She's always willing to curl up with me and a hot cup of cocoa as we enjoy one of our favorite holiday movies available on Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. And it just so happens that her favorite movie pick of the holiday season is one of my childhood favorites, ‘I Want A Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown.' I have always loved this movie, making it a tradition to watch every year, and I love how much she enjoys watching it with me.
In our homeschool classroom, Gracie is learning to read thanks to the vast collections of books available through Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. Holiday favorites including ‘Merry Christmas, Curious George', ‘Mr. Christmas', ‘Little Miss Christmas', and Disney's ‘A Christmas Carol', keep her engaged and in the holiday spirit all season long. And, if she's struggling with a story that may be a little above her reading level, I love how she's confident in asking for help whether it's from me, her dad, or her big brothers.
When we travel, Gracie loves listening to one of the many holiday Audible Books available on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. Having access to an Audible book helps to keep her from getting car sick from looking down at a table too long. From Christmas classics like ‘The Night Before Christmas', to ‘Corinna, The Christmas Elf', there is always a new story for her to enjoy.
One of my favorite tools that come with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet is the Parent Dashboard that provides the peace of mind that I can manage the time she, or any of our children, spend online. Through the Parent Dashboard, I can set time limits, adjust age filters. enable/disable web browser access, and choose whether or not to allow in-app purchasing. Plus, with Learn

What do my kids think of the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet? Well, let's just say that we have three more Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablets sitting under the Christmas tree waiting to be opened on Christmas Day. Shh….but don't tell them. Not only has the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet helped our daughter fall in love with the same holiday traditions I fondly remember from my childhoo, but our older children can't wait to read more, and play more, this holiday season.
