We are full into the holiday season and our family is preparing for the arrival of Santa. Just last weekend my family put the finishing touches on our Christmas tree. Our fireplace has been lit and is adorned with stockings. It is the perfect setting for spending quality time while watching our favorite shows this holiday season, especially the brand-new Amazon Prime Original Holiday Specials available on Amazon Prime Video Kids. Amazon Prime Original Holiday Specials offer a collection of cheerful adventures filled with creativity and holiday spirit.
Amazon Prime Original Holiday Specials are perfect for a warm and fun movie night in with the family. Take, for instance, Click Clack Moo: Christmas at the Farm that premiered on November 28th where farm animals band together to try figuring out how to buy the farmer his dream gift while one farm animal, Duck tries getting off of Santa’s “naughty” list. This title was inspired by “Click Clack, Moo” from New York Times bestselling duo Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.
After the excitement of Christmas has passed, and all of the presents are opened make some time to set resolutions for the 2018 New Year. If your kids are unsure of what are resolutions, Pete the Cat is here to help. In the new Pete the Cat: A Groovy New Year, Pete goes on a mission to not only find out what is a New Year resolution but also tries to find one. On December 26th, when this new original holiday special debuts, I know that my daughter will be excited to see her favorite character from the award-winning “Pete the Cat” book series by Kimberly and James Dean. If your kids are fans of Pete, be sure to tune in to Amazon Prime Video Kids to see Pete spread holiday cheer.
Other Fun Amazon Prime Original Holiday Specials and Episodes to look out for include:
