Veggie Tales Party Ideas

Veggie Tales
Veggie Tales is a fun show for children
When you talk of vegetables, most children would cower in a corner or simply shake their heads in disdain and terror. Veggies are definitely the most hated food items that you can serve your kids because of their unusual taste. Luckily, there are now ways to promote these food items into your kids’ diet, and that is by letting them watch kiddie programs that promote vegetables. One very popular example is “Veggie Tales.”

Veggie Tales is a TV series of computer animated stories and that feature talking vegetables that convey different moral themes centering on Christianity and doing good deeds. With fun characters such as Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Archibald Asparagus, Junior Asparagus and many more, Veggie tales is a must-see program for young kids. Some parents even use this program for their child’s birthday party theme.

If you want to have a fun party theme for your kid, a Veggie Tales party is a very recommendable option. Who says your kids can’t have a fun time with vegetables? When you throw a fun veggie tales birthday party, you’ll not only let her and her friends have fun, but you’ll also let her understand the value of these yummy greens.

Here are several helpful tips on how you can throw a good Veggie Tales party. Use them and let the fun begin!

  • You can easily purchase ready-made Veggie Tales invitations for the party, but if you’re feeling a bit more creative, you can draw the Veggie Tales characters on cardboard and then cut them out. Then, you can print or handwrite the party details on the invites.
  • Your party decorations should have festive vegetable colors, such as yellow, green and red. Hang up streamers, ribbons and balloons in these colors. For your table centerpieces, you can use actual vegetables, and then glue cardboard eyes on them, to make them look like the actual Veggie Tales characters.
  • You can’t use actual vegetables on your kid’s birthday cake, but you can make Veggie Tales characters appear on the cake instead. Make a round cake and then use red, white, black frosting to draw Bob the Tomato’s face on the surface.
  • Parties are never complete without games and activities. Play fun Veggie Tales games during the party, such as a potato race, pin the eyes on Bob, or Larry hop relay.
  • You can also let your kids watch a Veggie Tales video when they’re resting from the tiring games. Let them sing along to the silly songs, or after watching, you can have a question and answer game.
  • Don’t let the guests go home without a goodie bag! Fill up their Veggie Tales loot bags with fun and useful items, such as bookmarks, toy shovels and vegetable seed packets so they can have fun growing their own vegetables.
