Have you heard of the Amazon Alexa Skills Kids Challenge?

I am sure most of you are familiar with Amazon Alexa and how it operates.  Well, Alexa Skills are games, apps, etc that you can find within your Amazon Alexa devices, including the Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Show.

There are 20 Finalists, which were announced February 2nd, in the Amazon Alexa Skills Kids Challenge.  You can find the  20 Finalists as well as the 5 grand prize winners  across Amazon Alexa channels, including Amazon Echo FB/W, Amazon Skills email programs and Amazon.com.

If you enjoy educational activities that are engaging and entertaining, you will love these.

Here are a list of the Finalists:



I love all of the ideas that were submitted.  They are all so brilliant!  A few of my favorites are Animal Workout, which encourages exercise and imagination,   DrawIt, which encourages art and thinking skills, Mighty Trivia, which is a fast paced guessing game, and Out The Door which is a great asset for parents.  I like how Out The Door encourages timeliness and responsibility.

Of course, all of these skills are great.  But, these Amazon Alexa Skills: Kids Challenge activities  stood out to me personally because of their uniqueness and usefulness.

I love the creativity and imagination that was used to create these games and apps.  They are fun, helpful and teach life skills, constructive thinking and are a creative outlet.

Which Skills Challenges were your favorites?  Which do you think would be most useful for your family?

  5. These games are genius! I love games that intrigue children. Learning is much more like if they are having a good time while doing it. When it involves technology like Alexa all the better.

  6. I had no idea that Alexa had games. I don't have children but can only imagine how great these games would be for them--as they are unaware that they are learning at the same time!
