How Alexa Skill Blueprints is Keeping our Family Connected in a New and Unique Way

Like most busy moms I rely on Amazon to keep my life going a little smoother.  Whether it’s ordering a book for book club that I need to have in my hands the same day or putting a video on for the kids through Amazon Prime so that I can get some tasks done without being interrupted.  Amazon Echo is one of the huge ways Amazon helps this busy mom stay on track!  I am always asking Alexa what time it is, or what the weather is like, and the kids are able to ask Alexa all the random questions that used to require me to stop and google an answer, like how many miles is Mars from Earth, by the way, Mars is 73,943,356 miles away.  Plus, now Amazon Echo not only has the Alexa Skills it also has Alexa Skill Blueprints which allows you to create your own skills in minutes.

The Amazon Echo already has tens of thousands of Alexa Skill which can you can find and manage through the Alexa app, one of my favorites is Peaceful Meditation, while my kids love playing rock, paper, scissors with Alexa.  However, now you are also able to create your own skills with Alexa Skill Blueprints at blueprints.amazon.com from a desktop or mobile device using your Amazon login information.

How we use Alexa Skill Blueprints in Our Family

As a mom I love the flash cards blueprint the most, we have two third-graders who were always complaining about studying for vocabulary tests, up until Alexa was the one helping them study.  The chore chart is also at the top of my favorites list, now the kids can’t say “I didn’t know what I was supposed to do”.

As a family, we love the personalized jokes and trivia games.  It not only brings us together around the Amazon Echo to laugh and talk, these Alexa Skills Blueprints have helped us learn things about each other that we didn’t realize we didn’t know.  From favorite foods and colors to our family’s heritage and goals.

However, the kids like the personalized stories they can create and they absolutely love the Burns Blueprint, because they think it is hilarious that Alexa is roasting them.
