Trying to save money while keeping my family outfitted in top tech devices and services used to be one tough job. A few years ago though I discovered Walmart Family Mobile and got more bang for my buck with their plans and devices. Their plans are unlike anything else out there and my favorite one is their newest plan!

The Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan is full of everything you need from your phone service and an added bonus! That’s right, you get not only Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to a whopping 10GB of 4G LTE but you also get a free movie on VUDU every month ($7 value) per line and all of this comes in at only $49.88 a month.

My Family is #AngryforSavings with Walmart Family Mobile #ad

To get in on this all you need to do is pick your phone out at your local Walmart store. I bought the Coolpad Catalyst for my son and it was only $59.88! Then just grab the starter kit while you’re there as well (It’s on rollback for only $19.88) and you are all ready to get started. They have phones in every price range so there is something for everyone!

Coolpad Catalyst- $59.88 & starter kit is on rollback for $19.88 (from $25)

One of my favorite things about Walmart Family Mobile plans is that you can start service on ANY plan today for $19.88! Walmart Family Mobile is great because they bill you after your monthly usage, not before like so many other carriers out there.

With all of the data you get in the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan you will have no problems surfing the web, catching imaginary animals in the hottest app or posting your best selfie to your social media channels.

This month my family plans to grab The Angry Birds Movie for a fun family night. To make watching it even more fun though I’ve come up with a fun activity game to turn us into Angry Gamers during the movie. You can print off your own copy for your family to play along too and be sure to snap lots of silly pics and catch some of the antics on video too.

My Family is #AngryforSavings with Walmart Family Mobile #ad

Walmart Family Mobile will be having a fun event at stores across the country. Check here to find an in-store event near you to meet with a Walmart Family Mobile rep. This event will have a code that you can scan to receive a free power up for the Endless Runner Game on the Angry Birds Action! app. While you’re there at the store you can also Scan the Angry Birds code on the displays to unlock a selfie augmented reality experience with the Hatchlings. How FUN!

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

Thank you to intelliGLASS for sponsoring today’s post.

 

We are a heavy tech household. Prior to starting this blog I spent about 15 years in the I.T. industry. My husband also does I.T. for a living and while some kids were learning the alphabet our kids were learning how to build computers, program and computer aided drafting. What does that mean? First of all, it means we like our top of the line tech toys and it also means that sometimes accidents happens. We recently got a 12.9″ iPad Pro and needed a way to protect the screen all while still getting the best resolution and screen functionality. Thank goodness we found intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector it’s the smarter screen protector.

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

 

When our intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector arrived we were in desperate need for it. There had already been two that were thankfully short and resulted in no damage but the screen was an atrocious mess of fingerprints and dust. 

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

So what makes intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the best?

  • An advanced silicone base layer that adheres to your phone or tablet’s screen easily and without bubbles  – all while leaving no residue.  
  • An ultra-hardened REAL glass layer that has been specially treated to have greater scratch resistance than steel.  (try to scratch it with a set of car keys and you’ll see what we mean). 
  • An oil and smudge resistant outer layer that repels fingerprints and makes cleaning your phone’s surface a snap.  

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

How did the install go?

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

I read the instructions and used the enclosed alcohol wipe to clean off the screen. Then I broke out the microfiber cloth that was included to remove the streaks. 

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

Next, it was time for the dust removal. They include a blue, sticky plastic rectangle. You place it down and press. This pulls off all of the dust insuring that you get the best install possible. 

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

Installing the intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector was so easy. The included suction cup helped to insure perfect positioning and without fingerprints. 

intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector the Smarter Screen Protector #intelliGLASS

The included squeegee card and microfiber cloth helped remove any bubbles. 

Honestly, the intelliGLASS Hardened Glass Screen Protector was the easiest screen protector I have ever installed and fit perfectly. So far it’s doing what it said it would do and keeping fingerprints at bay while protecting my device. 

intelliGLASS is currently offering my readers a 20% discount. Just enter coupon code TM-3IULAGFV at checkout. With their vast selection of screen protectors for Android and iOS devices they will have just what you are looking for to keep your tech gear protected!

 

 

 


5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Launcher – Summer Camp Fun Plus a Discount

by Jennifer Wieland
5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.


 

It’s getting nicer and nicer outside with each passing day and the kids are itching for the end of school so that they can play all day and have loads of fun. One of the great things about spring and summer is that there are so many cheap things to create for hours of fun. My kids love when I let them make this 5 minute DIY marshmallow launcher. When we make them it’s like summer camp is at our house. They run around the yard and even the house during bad weather shooting marshmallows at each other.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Quick, cheap and easy are words I love to hear when coming up with things for the kids to make. These 5 minute DIY marshmallow launchers fit the bill on all three. You can pick up every single thing you need at the dollar store and more than likely have some or all of the items at home already.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

SUPPLIES

styrofoam cup(s)

balloon(s)

duct tape 

marshmallows

scissors

INSTRUCTIONS

Cut an inch or two off of the bottom of the styrofoam cup.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Blow up the balloon but do not tie it. Let the air out so  it can deflate. This helps to get the balloon stretchy. 

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Tie the end of the balloon as you would if it was inflated. Cut about 1/2″ off of the rounded top.

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Open up the end of the balloon that you just cut and stretch it to fit over the bottom (cut end) of the cup. 

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Use duct tape to secure the balloon to the cup. I like colorful or decorative duct tape. It makes the shooters more lively and each kid can pick a color/design to customize theirs. 

5 Minute DIY Marshmallow Shooter - Something fun and educational for the kids to make.

Now your marshmallow shooter is all ready to go. Pop a marshmallow inside, pull the tied balloon end and let it go! Watch the marshmallow sail through the air. 

One of the things I love about this project is that it’s a great way to add some science into your children’s play without your kids noticing at all. Here’s how:

  • Use both mini and regular marshmallows. Test to see which one goes farther.
  • Hold the cup at different angles. Which angle made the marshmallow shoot farthest?

Kid’s Birthday Party Photo Booth Plus a Photo Frame Craft #StickaPic

by Jennifer Wieland
Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic
As an HP Smart Mom Panel member, I received free products in order to host the HP #StickaPic Party. The opinions expressed here are my own.

 

Kid’s birthday parties used to be a thing of simplicity. A few simple games, some food, presents and cake and you were done and out of the woods as the mom throwing the party. Now though, birthday parties have gotten bigger, fancier and have more to do than ever before. So what’s a mom to do to try to keep up with all of this without breaking the family bank? Why, have your own kid’s birthday party photo booth plus a photo frame craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

I recently had my nephew’s first birthday party and it was mustache themed. Since all of the cousins were coming and were older, I wanted to give them a fun and entertaining craft project to do at the party. Lucky for me HP was kind enough to get my party planning craft idea in gear with some supplies.

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

 

I decided I would setup my HP Envy 5540 printer and create a makeshift photo booth for the kid’s to get their pictures taken with hat, beard & mustache props. 

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

Then I printed out the photos for the guests. I used my cell phone to take the pictures and then printed the pictures to my HP Envy 5540 printer since it’s wireless. I used the Social Media Snapshots app on my phone to print. This app is available on both iOS and Android devices and can pull pics from your social media apps with captions. 

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

My little niece waiting very patiently for her picture.

The HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper is sticker paper so it’s easy to peel and stick for kids.

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

I made a photo frame craft by using chipboard albums I had found at Michael’s. They were perfect since they would fit the photos and already had two holes in them to run ribbon or twine through to hang them up viagra for women

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

I cut off the bottom, white area of the photos before the kids stuck them to the chipboard. The kids then stuck the pictures of themselves onto the chipboard and then decorated them with stickers, paint markers and glitter glue.

Kid's Birthday Party Photo Booth and Photo Frame Craft with HP Social Media Snapshots Photo Paper #StickaPic

They then ran ribbon or twine through the wholes and tied it and BOOM! They had an adorable gift to keep or give mom and dad.

The photo booth and the photo frame craft were the hit of the party with the kids!

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable
This post is part of a sponsored campaign with MyPrintly and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

 

 

I love the school district my kids are in! It is a great district for special needs families. The schools and staff always go above and beyond to help and often are the first requesting additional services for kids. That is great because i know many parents that are in different districts with special needs children and they have to fight tooth and nail to get anything. I really love gifting the teachers and teacher’s aides with thank you gifts at the end of the year on the last day of school. However, having three kids that have IEP’s means that each one has more than one teacher, aides and therapists for different reasons. So I wish I could get each and every one of them an unbelievably amazing gift each year sadly that is just not a financial option for us or most families like ours. Fifteen to twenty gifts has to be done in a reasonable price range for us. This year, my youngest son Jackson will be gifting all of his teachers and aides with insulated cups filled with teas, sweeteners, and other convenience cold drink options. These useful gifts are then being adorned with these super cute end of year teacher gift tag printables.

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable

These gifts are easy to do all you need to do to get started is download the printable file. You can print it as is or add a picture of your child to the center of the blank lemons. You can get the file by clicking HERE.

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag PrintableSUPPLIES

Printed out gift tags on card stock

scissors

glue or glue stick

hole puncher

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable

I was able to quickly and easily get these printed out on my HP Envy printer. I love having a great quality color printer that works with all of my computers, tablets and phones!

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable

Cut out the circles, one front and one back one. Add a photo of your child by printing one and pasting it onto the center of the back circle.

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable

Use glue or glue stick to get the back of the circles good and tacky. Then line up the circles making sure the fronts will match up (top to top and bottom to bottom) and then press together.

End of Year Teacher Gift Tag Printable

Punch a whole with your whole puncher at the top and center of the circle. Fill up cute cups with some iced tea, sweeteners and other cold drink ideas. Add some crinkle paper so the items don’t shift and then attach the gift tag using a ribbon of your choice.

Super Family Full of Avengers Fans – Captain America Shield Foam Hair Clip

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

 

I grew up with a comic book loving dad. I think his regularly for instilling this love into me and I’m so happy to be passing it on to my children as well and I have to say (pats self on back) that I am pretty proud of myself for raising them right. That’s my super family is full of Avengers fans and we aren’t afraid to admit or show the world in all our wild and wacky glory.

We have been talking about and celebrating the upcoming release of MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron and have plans to see it this weekend. The kids have been running around sporting some new MARVEL’S The Avengers: Age of Ultron toys that I got for them. I decided they each need to look the part of their favorite character so we got some dress up play items and they have been having a blast!

My super kids being super Avengers fans. #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

Luke – Iron Man

Luke loves Iron Man and it’s no wonder why. He is our little technical genius in-house who picked up I.T. from his parents at a young age and it’s currently teaching himself programming at the ripe old age of 10. Not bad for a child who was just integrated back into our home school district from a special needs one due to being on the Autism Spectrum. Definitely someone this super momma is proud to call her son!

Jackson – The Hulk

Jackson is my emotionally sensitive child and also on the Autism Spectrum and I think he gravitates towards The Hulk for that reason. He gets the highs and lows he goes through but beneath it all has a good heart and lots of caring. He loves helping and taking care of others. Those are fine traits this super momma is so proud her son has!

Ellie – (Ms.) Captain America

Ellie is my only daughter and the baby and loves all things pretty, shiny and/or sparkly. She’s our own in-house fashionista who has a funky and eclectic style. She loves Captain America because he has the prettiest outfit according to her. She likes to refer to herself as Ms. Captain America and adds a little sass to her play costume with a tutu and matching leggings. This super momma loves that I’m raising a daughter that knows a girl can be more than a princess and can be the hero that saves the day all on her own!

Captain America Shield Foam Hair Clip #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

Mom – Super MARVEL fan

I love all things MARVEL and am so excited about this movie that I decided that I needed to take my super crafty skills and make myself something fun and funky for seeing the movie and to go with my MARVEL’S The Avengers t-shirt. That’s how I came up with this adorable Captain America’s shield hair clip

Captain America Shield Foam Hair Clip #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

SUPPLIES

red, white and blue peel and stick glitter foam

alligator clip

low heat hot glue gun and stick

DIRECTIONS

Using objects of various circular sizes (I used biscuit cutters) place them on the back of the peel and stick foam and trace. You will need two large about 3.5″ across in red, one white circle in about 2.5″, one red circle about 1.5″, a blue circle about 1″ and a white star about 1″. For the star I just free hand drew one. If you can find pre-done stars you can buy those but I wasn’t able to find any.

Captain America Shield Foam Hair Clip #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

Peel the backing off of the two large red circles and match up the sticky sides together so it is now glittery looking on both front and back. Next, peel off the back on the white and center it onto the large red circle. Follow next with the small red circle on the white and then the blue circle onto the small red circle. Finally peel the backing from the star and attach it to the blue circle.

Captain America Shield Foam Hair Clip #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

Using a low heat hot glue gun place glue onto the flat side of the alligator clip and firmly press onto the back of the shield. Let the glue set and then you are ready to use.

Specially marked MARVEL'S The Avengers: Age of Ultron foods at Walmart #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

After all of my crafting and the kids role-playing we definitely need to refuel with some snacks. Luckily, Walmart has all of the specially marked The Avengers: Age of Ultron specially marked packages of Kellogg’s Fruit Snacks and Cheez-It baked snack crackers. Which the kids just love! For us adults though I grabbed some of the specially marked Doritos and Dr. Pepper.

Specially marked MARVEL'S The Avengers: Age of Ultron foods at Walmart #AvengersUnite #CollectiveBias

These were so popular there were only two left in the store!

 What makes it even more fun shopping for and enjoying at home with these snacks is that you can download the Super Heroes Assemble app. Avengers fans, it’s time to Assemble again. With Super Heroes Assemble, turn your phone into a portal to exclusive MARVEL’S Avengers: Age of Ultron content. Keep up to date with the latest movie and behind-the-scenes action. Plus, scan The Avengers displays at Walmart and Walmart.com to become your favorite Avenger, explore a Hulkbuster training facility in a cool 360 degree interactive space and to bring MARVEL’S Avengers: Age of Ultron characters to life with augmented reality. Download the app in the iTunes Store or in the Google Play Store.
