Even before the sun’s rays begin to peak over the horizon, I hear footsteps racing down the stairs. It’s Christmas morning and I’ve been asleep for no less than 3 hours. But secretly, I breathe a sigh of relief. The stress and frenzy of the season finally culminate in an early morning whirlwind of wrapping paper and ribbon. Today we rest…and eat cinnamon rolls…and celebrate Christmas as a family watching our favorite movies and indulging in comfort holiday foods. With two school-aged kids, we try to keep the shows and movies family-friendly, which is why Amazon Prime Video Kids has been our go-to for family-friendly programming.

Amazon Prime Video Holiday Specials
After the presents have been unwrapped and your family has enjoyed Christmas dinner, enjoy the brand new Amazon Prime Original Holiday Specials including Click Clack Moo: Christmas at the Farm and Pete the Cat: A Groovy New Year.
Click Clack Moo: Christmas at the Farm was inspired by the children’s book series Click, Clack, Moo from New York Times bestselling authors Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin. During Christmas, the farm animals are tasked with finding Farmer Brown the gift of his dreams…a Tumbletron 300 clothes dryer. It is a race against time for them and for Duck, who has his own dilemma of getting off Santa’s naughty list.
If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie was inspired by the classic children’s book by Laura Numeroff. In the holiday special, it is Christmas time, which means Christmas cookies, caroling, and a holiday pageant gone-wrong. Can Mouse and his friends save the show without getting distracted along the way?
The Snowy Day is based on the award-winning book by Ezra Jack Keats. This Christmas, Peter goes on a magical snowy walk to his Nana’s house to bring home Christmas Eve Dinner.
Pete the Cat: A Groovy New year was inspired by the Pete the Cat book series by Kimberly and James Dean. As New Year’s Eve approaches, Pete the Cat needs a resolution. With the help of friends and family, Pete sets out on a musical adventure to find his resolution. As the clock ticks down to midnight, will Pete find his resolution in time?
