Summer may be coming to a close soon. In 2 weeks, the kids go back to school and I’ll hopefully be having a baby before then. A lot of fun in the sun can still be had in what time we have left, however. Thankfully, we live within walking distance to a very nice park and playground, with water slides. And to keep in touch, we have Walmart Family Mobile.
We’ve been using Walmart Family Mobile phones and monthly plans now for years. It’s reliable, convenient, and inexpensive, with some great added extras. For instance, with the TRULY Unlimited Plan from Walmart Family Mobile powered by T-Mobile, you get Unlimited Talk and Text, and TRULY Unlimited data.
There is no contract, no activation fees, and no late fees, making it so easy to start or switch.

This is a great plan for my oldest son, and the LG L59 Grace is the perfect phone. With all the bells and whistles of a more expensive phone, it’s the upgrade he’s been needing.
I can feel confident knowing that wherever he is, whether down at the park, at the pool, or visiting friends, I can get a hold of him if need be. Like if I should happen to go into labor. Any day now.
The last thing we need is for his new phone to accidentally get wet at the pool, however. Or even if he gets caught in the rain while walking home. An easy and simple Plastic DIY Waterproof Phone Bag solution involves items you probably have around the house already: a plastic sandwich bag, strong colorful tape, a hole punch, and black shoestring or cord to carry.
Since my son is almost 14 years old, with a birthday coming up in November, I went with a very subdued shade of blue tape and black cord. Nothing that he could possibly find embarrassing. If I were making this for my more feisty 9 year old daughter, however, I wouldn’t hesitate to use glitter or designer tape and a bright pink cord. In other words, you can make it any way to fit your style.
Plastic DIY Waterproof Phone Bag
- plastic zipper sandwich bag
- strong colorful tape
- 1/4″ hole punch
- black shoestring or cord
Using a general plastic zipper sandwich bag, wrap a piece of tape around the top. Cover both sides, front and back. Leave a flap overlapping off the side.
Punch a hole in the flap of tape with the hole punch. Insert a shoestring or cord, and tie tightly forming a loop to carry.
In just a few steps, your phone is now safe from any drops or sprays in our Plastic DIY Waterproof Phone Bag! And you can still finger swipe through the plastic!
I wouldn’t purposely dunk it in a pool of water, but at least with our Plastic DIY Waterproof Phone Bag there’s a layer of protection just in case. Plus, I feel better knowing that I can keep in contact him and he can do the same with me, thanks to our new phone and $49.88 PLUS Unlimited Talk, Text & Data Plan from Walmart Family Mobile powered by T-Mobile! Where would you take your new phone?

Such a great idea! It’s wonderful to have a plan that makes it easy to stay in touch with your kids without breaking the bank! Best wishes on your expected baby! #client
How do you charge it after putting it in the bag?
Hi there! The phone is only meant to be put in the bag for a short time while at the pool or on a rainy day, for instance. Thus, fully charged before placing in the bag would be ideal. A hole in the bag for charging would only let water in and defeat it’s purpose.
Very creative! I have always used my roadeavour case before. I might also want to create one of this. Thanks!
