Playtime is a time when children interact with the world around them. Experts agree that play has a profound impact on childhood learning and advocate that schools incorporate a healthy playtime for children. With schools on lockdown and children at home, parents may be running out of ideas for playtime. The\u00a0Google Assistant\u00a0offers ways to sneak play into your child\u2019s daily routine while they are at home.\u00a0 Kids can interact with Google Assistant under the supervision of their parents or guardians. By using the\u00a0Family Link app\u00a0from Google, you can stay in the loop as your children explore on their devices.\u00a0Here are a few ways to get Google Assistant to play with your kids. Start with questions There are so many questions your child can ask\u00a0Google Assistant, just to get\u00a0acquainted.\u00a0While\u00a0Google Assistant\u00a0is known to answer a lot of voice command queries, it also has a very humorous side that makes it fun to talk to. Ask the Google Assistant: \u201cCan you sing?\u201d, \u201cDo you have children?\u201d, \u201cWhat do you like to eat?\u201d, \u201cWhat are you wearing?\u201d and \u201cCan you beatbox?\u201d for some family entertainment. Play Games With Google Assistant, you can get your kids to start playing fun games. Simply ask your assistant to show you\u00a0game options for kids. For example, try out \u201cMad Libs\u201d where they can start a word game. Other fun games include, \u201cSanta Quiz: A Santa Trivia Game\u201d, \u201cMultiplication Test\u201d, \u201cPeppa Pig quiz\u201d, Disney Z\u201d, \u201cKids Court\u201d. \u201cDing Dong Coconut\u201d and others. These games allow for learning while they are played. Listen to a story Let your Google Assistant tell your children stories. They can listen to interactive stories from a variety of story options like\u00a0Frozen Stories\u00a0where the kids\u00a0join Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff around the campfire as they tell legends exploring the world of \u201cFrozen 2\u201d. There is also\u00a0Strangest Day Ever, where children get to travel back in time or meet an a-'moo'-sing alien and\u00a0Smart StoryTeller\u00a0that teaches moral lessons. Get a riddle Riddles during playtime can be so much fun for your kids. By asking the Google Assistant to tell you a riddle, you get a riddle and the answer follows. Riddles come up and you can always request one more to keep the fun going - like \u201cWhat has a lot of keys but can\u2019t open any doors?\u201d, \u201cWhat\u2019s harder to catch the faster you run?\u201d or \u201cWhat two days start with T, other than Tuesday and Thursday?\u201d Get interesting facts By asking the Google Assistant to share an interesting fact, you immediately get one. Like the fact that camels do not store water in their humps, though many people think so; that the national anthem of Greece is the longest national anthem in the world; or that strawberries are not actually berries but bananas and tomatoes are. The interesting facts from Google Assistant can be a really fun way of learning new things.
