I am no stranger to VeggieTales. For starters, in junior high youth group we used to sing all of the silly songs from the movies, and now that I am a mom with my own kids, we have a couple of VeggieTales DVD’s that the kids really enjoy. I love the positive messages they instill while being Biblical but not overwhelming. I love the approach of the movies, and of course, my kids love the silly songs! I also love the simplicity of the faith-based values they teach kids which is more than I can say for most shows on TV, so as a tie-in with their favorite VeggieTales movies, I made these memory verse printables.
I remember memorizing Bible verses in Sunday School and Awana, and it was always an important part of my school work at the small private school I attended in Nebraska. Memory verses are such a small task but leave a profound foundation for kids to build upon. What better way to have them speaking the truth at a young age? Print these out and put them in a frame in their room, tape to the bathroom mirror, or anywhere your kids will see them. Since Kenley can’t read, I have been reading one to her a week until she can repeat it. These are simple yet powerful!
She loves the Laura plush that goes along with the movies, too! And Bob the Tomato was Brayden’s choice. I am hoping with our new bedtime routine (more on that later!), these VeggieTales plush toys will be helpful. It’s so fun to be able to tie in their favorite characters to something positive and uplifting.
I am excited to be encouraging my kids at home and being able to answer their questions about the Bible stories they are learning about. Once they get these verses down, I will have to come up with some more! VeggieTales will keep me inspired while keeping my kids glued to the TV for a good reason!
