Keeping the family entertained with free kid-friendly content

From the Life hacks: Tips for adjusting to a socially distanced lifestyle series

Amazon Prime Video is offering free access to kid-friendly shows, like "Arthur." (WGBH Educational Foundation/PBS)

With schools closed and many working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, it can be tricky to keep kids entertained. Amazon Prime Video is doing its part to keep children busy and educated with family-friendly shows now available to customers for free.

The content is divided into categories — preschool, ages 6-11 and PBS Kids series — and features select episodes from shows like “Arthur,” “Caillou” and Amazon original “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.” All of these series were previously available for free to Prime Video customers, but are now accessible to all.

There are also free, family-friendly movies (with ads) available under the IMDb TV section, including “Scooby-Doo,” “Muppets from Space,” “The Smurfs” and Disney Channel’s “Radio Rebel.”

To access the free content, sign into your Amazon account (if you don’t have one, it’s free to sign up). Then go to to start watching.
