Autumn half term. It might only feel like yesterday when your kids returned back to school but, before you know it, we’ll be half-way through October. Keeping your precious offspring entertained can be tricky. Perhaps Amazon can help?
Half-term is almost upon us but Amazon has come up with four boredom-busting activities which can be done at home using the Fire Kids Edition.
The Fire Kids Edition is a 7-inch, quad-core packing tablet which is wrapped up in a kid-proof case. It has 16GB of on-board storage for all those child-friendly apps.
So, what about those ideas?
- Reading relays – set goals for your little one to reach before they can move on to their next activity. With Learn First, you can block access to games and cartoons until certain educational goals have been met… read then play, read then play. If you’ve got more than one with two very different personalities and age ranges, you can use the new Smart Filters function. This allows you to tailor the content each child sees within their own library. This also means more quiet reading time for you.
- Gaming – with a year of Fire for Kids Unlimited included in the price, keep your little ones entertained as they enjoy access to thousands of age-appropriate, kid-friendly games. With new content for kids aged between 9 and 12 years, this natty tablet can grow with your children from the age of 3 upwards. Encourage them to take it in turns on some of their favourite games such as Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja, and watch as their competitive spirit keeps them busy for hours.
- Ultimate kids den – rustle up a comfy den filled with cushions, blankets and toys and leave the kids to their own devices. Thanks to the tablet’s parental controls, parents control what their kids can see – and for how long. The little ones can get (controlled) access to thousands of hand-curated, age-appropriate websites and pre-selected YouTube videos. Theses come without any extra setup or costs.
- Art workshops – from handprint painting and potato stamps to Art Attack style masterpieces, let the kids get messy while watching kid-friendly tutorials on how to paint like a pro! What’s even better is that the tablet comes with 2-year worry-free guarantee. This means that a little paint needn’t be a concern; if they break it, return it and we’ll replace it, no questions asked.
