Veggie Tales Easter Basket Giveaway

by Lesley

The Easter Bunny is coming! It won’t be long now until we are waiting for his arrival and a basket full of goodies. While we enjoy the fun traditions of the holiday, we don’t want to forget what it’s really about – the resurrection of Jesus.

One great way to teach your child throughout the year about Jesus and the Bible is by giving them Veggie Tales products. Veggie Tales is a very popular brand that helps us to teach our children about good values through moral stories. Not all of their products are about the Bible, but each one teach a very good moral lesson.

Now just in time for Easter, VeggieTales has released THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD, an all-new Veggie Tales story on DVD. THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD is a parody of two popular nursery rhymes – The Three Little Pigs and Humpty Dumpty. They can help to teach valuable life lessons.

The Three Little Pigs meet the Wise and Foolish builders and learn that by making good choices, they can build a house that will stand against any storm!  In the “The Good Egg of Gooseville” we find out what happens BEFORE Humpty cracks, in a good neighbor story where we learn why it’s a nice to lend a little hand to those in need.

THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD reunites fans with popular VeggieTales characters including:

  • Larry the Cucumber – Goofy, green and always a little bit silly!
  • Bob The Tomato – He’s the practical one who likes to make sure there’s a lesson to learn, but always gets pulled into Larry’s silliness!
  • Jr. Asparagus – This little 6-year-old Veggie is full of fun and reminds us that little guys can do big things too!
  • Plus – The French PeasMadame Blueberry, AND MORE!

THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD is now available at Walmart.

Enter to win

We are giving away an Easter Basket full of Veggie Tale goodies that will include the DVD– THE HOUSE THAT STOOD, 25 Favorite Silly Songs CD, Super Coloring Activity book, and a $20 Walmart gift card! Every child will love this!

Use the Rafflecopter form to enter this giveaway. New to Rafflecopter? Watch this 45-second video on how to enter!

My daughter got “Too Big Too Dance” from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and I loved the end when the giraffe who couldn’t fit in the door to the dance was joined by her friends. In these days when bullying and exclusion is so prominent, I really liked the message of standing by your friends.

My favorite story that teaches a good lesson is an older one, that was read to us in grade school called… Did You Carry The Flag Today Charlie? It teaches that the “outside” of a person doesn’t make the person good or bad. It also teaches that everyone has special abilities that make them “smart” and that “smart” can be found other places besides schools :)
