Embracing Holiday Traditions With The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet ~ #AmazonKidsandFamily

Holiday traditions mean a lot to me and my family, and we are always finding ways to add new ones. When we're not baking cookies together or singing along to carols using my Amazon Echo, you can find us relaxing reading Christmas classics. Today in collaboration with Amazon, I'm here to share how you can embrace holiday traditions with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet.

As you probably know, Madison and I are huge fans of the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. I’ll be honest; it took me a little while to warm up to the idea of handing my child a tablet of her own. However, the Fire Kids Edition won me over for a few reasons:

  • It’s virtually indestructible. The Fire Kids Edition is super durable and comes with a kid-proof case, so it’s designed to withstand bumps and drops. And if your little one happens to break it, you’re in luck - each device comes with a two-year warranty, so you’re covered! Amazon will send a free replacement if your device breaks, no questions asked. 
  • Each new Fire Kids Edition comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, which gives you access to tons of educational and fun kid-friendly content. From books and audiobooks to movies, games, and kid-friendly websites, your child will have tons of options to choose from.
  • You can access parental controls through the Parent Dashboard, which lets you adjust age filters, enable web browser access, and review the content your child is consuming. You also get the ability to manage all kinds of time limits to ensure your kid isn’t staying up too late or spending too much time using their tablet. And you can set educational goals, too, so you can ensure your little one spends some time learning while they have fun.

With all of that built-in, it’s easy to see why the Fire Kids Edition tablets are the #1 kids’ tablets in the U.S. I know it’s the #1 kids’ tablet in my home, and as the holidays approach, we’ve found some fun ways to transform our holiday traditions to incorporate our new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet. Here are just a few of the ways we use our Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet to enjoy our favorite Christmas traditions:


READING CHRISTMAS STORIES. While there’s something about reading a real book that just can’t be replaced, there are a few benefits to e-readers that you just can’t pass up. With our Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet, we have virtually any book we want to read available at our fingertips, and when the holiday season rolls around, that means it’s easy for us to revisit our favorite Christmas stories together. From Audible books like The Night Before Christmas and Corinna the Christmas Elf to ones you can read along together, like The Snowy Day, there is no shortage of options to choose from.

BAKING CHRISTMAS COOKIES. One of my favorite holiday traditions is spending time in the kitchen, baking tray after tray of Christmas cookies to share with friends and family. We used to copy recipes from the web or print off instructions, but not anymore! Now, we use or Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet to browse the web and find recipes to try together. Then, we keep the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet in the kitchen to refer back to as we bake!



WATCHING CHRISTMAS MOVIES. The Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet is perfect for watching shows and movies. When the holidays roll around, what better way to celebrate the spirit of the season than to watch a fun Christmas film? We’ve enjoyed Arthur’s Perfect Christmas and The Littlest Angel so far, but there are tons to choose from!

SURVIVING HOLIDAY ROAD TRIPS. The holiday season always involves at least one or two road trips to visit family and friends who don’t live close to home. Our Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet has been an absolute lifesaver on the road. With Offline Mode, you can download content to view when you don’t have access to the Internet, so your kids will never find themselves without a story to read or a movie to watch!


As you can see, we’ve found plenty of ways to use our Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet to celebrate the holiday season and digitize our favorite holiday traditions. Just think of all the ways you and your family could put one to good use this Christmas - and add it to your wishlist if you don’t already own one!
