Kids Craft: March Comes in Like a LION...Masks

March comes in like a Lion right? Celebrate the season with this fun Kids Craft or Classroom Activity! A Lion Mask!

This past weekend we started working on our master bath; it's one of the final steps in a home addition that has been three years in the making. I can't wait to show you the final results, just a few more projects to finish up. So, with the smell of pipe cement wafting through the air I decided the kids and I needed to make something to remind ourselves that spring is right around the corner. 

One of the many sayings I remember is "March comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb." Well, with this craft we've got the lion part covered! This would make a great classroom project, I tried to use Art box supplies but if you need to speed things along a glue gun and utility knife will make some of the steps much easier and quicker. 

What a great classroom activity to celebrate the first day of spring! March comes in like a lion, out like a lamb.

Staying Connected with Walmart Family Mobile PLUS

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #DataAndAMovie #CollectiveBias 

I love living in the country and with the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan I don't have to sacrifice my solitude for staying connected. With 10g of data I can video chat with family here and abroad, keep up to date on all the social media trends, and take care of household finances and appointments. Follow the link to read more about this awesome new data plan! (Did I mention the free movie?) ad #DataAndAMovie #FamilyMobile

Even in the winter, I love living in the country. The privacy, the nature, the quiet; it all appeals to my introverted side. However, there’s one very ugly thing you should know about rural living. The internet service is…not so great and sometimes non-existent. In fact, most of my neighbors have ditched their landlines and switched to mobile mainly for its reliability. And there’s only one other thing as important as finding a reliable connection in these parts, and that’s a good data plan.

I use my mobile service for paying bills, taking care of household appointments, and keeping in touch with overseas relatives; not to mention my feeble attempts at staying up to date on all the blogging world’s social media trends. Is it any wonder I have been blowing through my data plan by mid-month. I’m entirely too cheap to pay for extra, so I was super excited when I was introduced to the new Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan. 

If you run out of data before the end of the month you're going to want to check out this new deal, the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan! 10G of data PLUS 1 free VUDU movie, per line/per month for $...  ad #DataAndAMovie #FamilyMobile
