VeggieTales Christmas Printable Crafts

(Disclosure: I am a VeggieTales Mom Blogger and received a copy of their newest movie. All thoughts are my own.)

When it comes to kid’s movies, some of our favorites are from VeggieTales. I love the positive messages that the movies share and the characters are so lovable. VeggieTales newest movie, Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas, does not dissapoint. Check out the trailer for the movie:

The movie is about Larry The Cucumber and reminds people of the true meaning of Christmas. Larry is a Christmas elf at the Spring Valley Mall who just wants to spread joy at the holidays. When he meets a little girl with a big heart whose only Christmas wish is to help a friend in need, “Merry Larry” sets off on adventure that will light up the holidays like never before and show the town of Spring Valley what Christmas is all about – “Christmas shines most bright and true when you give the love God gave to you!”

To go along with the movie here is a fun craft you can make with your kids. Just print, color, cut, and hang!

Here’s another fun craft! Print out the page and have your child press their finger on an ink pad and use the fingerprint to make the lights part of the Christmas lights.

Have a very Veggie Christmas!

Here’s another great printable from VeggieTales in honor of the Lettuce Love One Another DVD. Today’s theme is serving others. You can talk as a family about what nice things you can do for others and then fill out these cards. I’m thinking about doing them with Jacob and then having him give them to daddy for Valentine’s Day :)

VeggieTales The Penniless Princess DVD {Review & Giveaway}

Sweet Sara Crewe has everything a little girl could want — a loving family, lots of friends and a closet full of frilly dresses! But when life takes a turn and Sara goes from riches to rags, will she realize that her true worth lies not in what she has, but what she has in her heart? Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales that reminds kids who they are in God’s eyes.

I wasn’t sure how interested the boys {ages 3 and 4} would be in a movie about Princesses but, since they likes other VeggieTales movies, I figured it was worth a try. As I watched this movie with my boys I realized that the storyline was similar to my favorite children’s movie, The Little Princess. The other movie the boys won’t sit through but since the VeggieTales one has cartoon characters and lively songs this one was a hit. The message that God will love them no matter what is one of the most important lessons I want them to learn.

I love that VeggieTales movies always have positive messages and that they line up with our morals. Nowadays some of the shows Jacob wants to watch don’t seem appropriate for preschoolers but I can always expect wholesome entertainment when I put in a VeggieTales movie.

The Penniless Princess comes out August 11th but you can win a copy here!

I am so excited about my prize in this giveaway hop! One lucky reader will win a copy of VeggieTales: The Little Drummer Boy DVD and O Holy Night: Journey of a Little Drummer Boy CD.

VeggieTales DVD:

In this Veggie-version of a holiday classic, Junior Asparagus stars as The Little Drummer Boy, a lonely child who finds the true meaning of Christmas when he stumbles upon the birth of the baby Jesus.  A story of generosity, hope, and love, this timeless tale will warm the hearts of children everywhere!

VeggieTales movies are always fun to watch and full of color and songs…this one is no exception. They also teach morals and have good lessons in them and I especially like the lesson this movie teaches. Jacob is three and for the first time has been talking about Christmas and what he wants to get. I am working at helping him understand that the Holiday isn’t just about what you can get but that it’s about giving and Jesus. I think that children learn through many different senses so watching a movie about the meaning of Christmas along with me talking about it will help him understand.

VeggieTales CD:

Features never-before released on CD songs from Amy Grant & Matthew West, Steven Curtis Chapman, and BeBe & CeCe Winans!

I have a confession to make…we have been listening to this Christmas CD since before Halloween! I love Christmas music and the best part about this CD is that it has songs on there for adults mixed in with the VeggieTales songs. It also includes one of my favorite Christmas songs called “Give This Christmas Away”. The children also like it. We spend a lot of time in the car, especially on our busiest day where between therapies and preschool, Lucas (my youngest) spends the good part of four hours sitting in his carseat. Most of the time he sits fine but when it gets towards the end of that time period he is done sitting and starts fussing but when I turn the VeggieTales CD on he stops. I think Larry and Tom’s voices calm him!
