When I first purchased a Google Home Mini for our living room, I thought I was doing it for me - one of those newfangled voice assistants to help manage my schedule, keep track of local news and traffic patterns, and tell me how to dress for the day's weather.
Little did I know that it would actually be my daughter who made that Google Home her own. She quickly mastered using it better than I ever could, and happened upon some really cool kid-friendly features that keep her entertained for hours, thus avoiding the dreaded screens (just kidding, she still gets plenty of screen-time too. Because . . . survival). Here are some of her favorite Google Home games, for parents who are looking for a little more support from their helpful voice assistant.
