5 Alexa Parenting Hacks

Alexa has quickly become a staple in many homes, and it’s no surprise that parents are finding new and clever ways to use the voice-activated assistant to make their lives easier. One popular hack is to set Alexa as a bedtime alarm for kids. By saying something like “Alexa, set an alarm for 7:00 PM,” you can create a daily reminder for your child to start getting ready for bed.

Another useful Alexa parenting hack is to use the voice-controlled speaker to play white noise or soothing music at nap time or bedtime. This can help your little one drift off to sleep more easily. And if you’re looking for a fun way to keep your kids entertained, you can ask Alexa to play games like Mad Libs or I Spy.

So if you’re looking for some clever ways to use Alexa around the house, these parenting hacks are a great place to start.

“Alexa, where did I put that annoying toy”

Forget where you put your keys, or stashed the kid’s toys? Alexa’s memory skill ensures that you never lose your keys, phone or the school shoes again.

Simply tell Alexa when you sit the object down and then if you can’t find it she will remind you exactly where you put it! How cool?!

You will love Alexa’s spin on the classic game of hide and seek. In this version of the game, everyone hides as Alexa plays the seeker and tries to guess their location. Quick, go hide!
