Whether you’re creating new traditions or celebrating old ones, see how a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet can enhance your holiday traditions.
Holiday traditions are such a important part of my holiday celebrations every year. When I was growing up, I remember how excited my sister and I were when the holidays rolled around. That meant holiday movie marathons, fun cookie baking sessions and decorating the tree while holiday music filled the air. Even today when re-creating these same traditions with my kids I get a little nostalgic thinking back to all the fun I had. I want my kids to have these same memories as they grow up and one day start these same traditions with their own families. In the meantime, I savoring every minute all while creating new traditions that we’ll all cherish for years to come. Thanks to technology, the same traditions I grew to love are only getting better with the addition of the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet. Yes, the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet makes it BETTER!
FIND A NEW HOLIDAY RECIPE
Baking cookies is pretty much one of my all time favorite holiday traditions. I mean who doesn’t love a homemade cookie. We have our tried and true family favorites that we make every year but every year we love to add another new variety to the mix. The Fire HD 8 Kids EditionTablet makes it easy to find new recipes with kid-friendly cookbooks available in Amazon FreeTime Unlimited.
STAY CONNECTED DURING HOLIDAY TRAVELS
If you have ever hit the road for a long car ride, especially during the holidays when traffic is at it’s worst, then you know just how quick a child any age can get bored. We’re a family who spends a lot of time on the road especially since we love a good road trip, so I know it all too well.
Despite the best preparations, it’s inevitable they’ll get bored. This is where the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet comes in handy.
The kids can stay connected to their favorite books, videos and educational apps in offline mode. With the touch of a button, I can download the content before we leave the house so the kids can enjoy themselves without the stress of me having to find a Wi-Fi connection and they’ll have plenty of different entertainment choices to keep them busy when we’re on the road.
Kids can download FreeTime Unlimited content for viewing offline, making it the perfect choice for long road trips in the car or on an airplane, by simply long-pressing the titles they want downloaded while connected to Wi-Fi. FreeTime will automatically start Offline Mode when the tablet is disconnected from Wi-Fi or put into Airplane Mode. Then only the downloaded content will be visible in FreeTime. Once a Wi-Fi connection has been re-established, the full FreeTime Unlimited catalogue will return.
Holiday movie marathon are one of my favorite things to do. With the cooler temperatures making it not all that fun to be outside, the holidays are the perfect time to curl up with a some hot cocoa, cozy pajamas and an assortment of holidays movies.
With the large variety of holiday titles available in Amazon FreeTime Unlimited (there are a variety of holidays available). We’re always finding new titles to mix in with our favorite classics. What I loved the most was that there are even titles in Spanish.
We’re raising our kids bilingual and my husband almost exclusively speaks to the kids in Spanish so they are immersed in the language as much as they can be. When I find toys that are bilingual, they’re usually the first ones I buy. Having some of these videos available in Spanish made me fall in love with the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet even more!
In fact, there’s even more Spanish language titles available in Amazon FreeTime and FreeTime Unlimited. There are over 1,000 age-appropriate books, videos, educational apps, games, and Audible books, plus thousands of kid-friendly and hand-curated websites and web videos—all in Spanish! There’s no additional cost to the subscription, it’s all included!
Back when my son was born, I started a tradition to read a new holiday story or book to countdown the 12 days of Christmas. Each night, we pick out a special holiday edition story to read before bed. Even though he’s older now, it’s still one of our favorite things to do. Now, he loves picking out some of the holiday books he loved when he was little to read to his little sister.
We’ve even added new titles that are sure to become family favorites with Audible. There are a ton of titles available in Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. This week’s favorites are Bobby Bright Spends Christmas in Spain and Corinna the Christmas Elf, she can’t get enough.
PARENTAL CONTROLS FOR PIECE OF MIND
While my kids might not be too excited over the parental control features, I sure love them. I can easily set time limits in FreeTime in addition to adjusting the age limits, disable/enable web access (I keep it disabled for my youngest) and I can even turn off in-app purchasing. The best part? I can do all this right from my mobile phone!

I’m so happy with it that I’m planning on getting the Fire HD 10 Kid Edition tablet – Amazon’s largest and fastest kids’ tablet for Ryan. The bigger screen at 10.1” is perfect for him.
