The first weeks of transition from carefree summer months to planned school days are equally difficult for children and parents alike. Fortunately, a creative Google Home routine can be the key to waking up rather than being dazzled or groggy by your drowsy offspring. I'm sorry, kids, you have to be in bed for a decent hour.
Here are some ways parents can useto make waking up for children more entertaining.
Google has added some of the characters from their kids' favorite Nickelodeon shows. Instead of Google's simple glockenspiel, you can ask Google to specify a specific character theme. You can choose between the alarms Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Restart 201
and you will hear briefly about the character of the show. When the alarm goes off in the morning, music (generally the title song of the show) is used as an alarm clock. This will play until you or your child say, "Hey, Google, stop it."
Next, a character will share a fun fact about the show, a joke or words of encouragement. My favorite was Lego City's character Jake Early. His segment was set up like a newscast and asked the listener to do his best today.
Most likely, you have your own sleep and wake up routines with your child, but Google Home can add something new to it. In particular, if your child has a Google Home in their room, you can set up wake-up and bedtime routines. Just add the device to your phone and set up language customization for you and your child.
To open one for the morning, open the Google Home app . Make sure you're using your child's connected speaker. Tap Routines> Manage routines> Good morning.
After your child mutes the normal or Nickelodeon alarm, you can trigger the morning routine from your Google Home app or device or start the alarm yourself. Choose one of the standard expressions ("Good morning", http://www.cnet.com/ "Tell me about my day" or "I'm up") or consider your own ("wake up, sleepyhead", for example). The commands must be preceded by "OK, Google".
The feature works with 16 Little Golden Book titles such as Alice in Wonderland, Coco, Toy Story 3, Mulan, Frozen, Mickey's Christmas Carol, and more. All titles cost $ 4 to $ 5 if you want to order the song on Google Express.
If you already have to book, just say "Hey Google, read [book title]." You can download Ara the Star Engineer for free on Google Play to see how it all works.
Keep only half a meter away from the speaker and start reading when you hear the music. You can end the story at any time by saying "Hey Google, stop it".
