Amberly is 10 and the rule in our home is that you can have a mobile phone once you are 10. We had to make this rule since kids are smartphone crazy these days and most of their friends have phones. Cell phones and plans can get crazy expensive so I did my research for an affordable plan that would provide unlimited talk, text and data. I decided to go with Walmart Family Mobile. They have great phones, like the Samsung Galaxy On5 ($119.00) we bought Amberly, and incredible value in their plans! Look at that smile!
We chose the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan which includes unlimited talk, text, data with 10GB 4G LTE, plus a free movie rental on VUDU every month for $49.88 per line. I purchased the phone and the Starter Kit ($19.88) and had her new phone set up in no time! My out of pocket was really low compared to other prepaid carriers - only $19.88 to get started. Can you imagine what she will do with all that data? She is going to play a crazy amount of games and stream so much video on her phone! Walmart Family Mobile has many plans to choose from but I chose the PLUS since it includes a movie every month and we are big family movie night buffs!! You can watch these movies on a Smart TV or on a TV via Roku or Chromecast. It's really super convenient! It's the whole "2 birds with one stone" thing!!!
We continued celebrating Amberly by renting her most recent favorite movie, Angry Birds. She is a HUGE fan of the games and loved the movie. We chose Angry Birds for our latest family movie night and I created a quick Angry Birds trivia game to play before we watched it!
Which Angry Bird are you? This is a super fun game, involves a little trivia and a little math (which is always great) and gets you ready to watch the Angry Birds movie. It would also be great for an Angry Bird party or rainy day boredom buster!

To play the game all you need to do is download the image above. It's sized 8 x 10 so you could print on photo paper or regular sized letter paper.
Cut along all the dotted lines and make two piles. One pile of trivia questions and one pile of characters. You will also need scrap paper and pencils to keep score!
First, you have someone read the trivia questions and the answer options. Players get points based on responses. After players answer all four questions, they tally up their scores and then check to see which Angry Bird they are.
Gian ended up with enough points to become his favorite, Bomb bird!! We have had fun with this game and played a couple rounds. My kids were always trying to change their answers to become different Angry Birds characters. I was usually Matilda!
