Easter is right around the corner. There is no doubt that many parents and grandparents are already stocking up on jelly beans and chocolate bunnies for their child or grandchild.
When my children were little we used to give them plenty of non-candy gifts in their Easter baskets. Their grandparents loved to spoil them like crazy and would give them A LOT of candy. So instead of giving them even more candy we opted to give them non-candy things instead such as books, coloring books, crayons, Play Doh and DVDs. Of course we did give them a little bit of candy too. It’s not an Easter basket without candy. 🙂
If you enjoy giving your child or grandchild some non-candy gifts in their Easter baskets, here is a wonderful DVD suggestion you might want to consider. It’s the newest VeggieTales release called The Little House that Stood. This all new adventure is available at Walmart.
The Little House that Stood features a lot of everyone’s favorite 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!
- The French Peas, Madame Blueberry and more!
The Little House that Stood parodies two popular nursery rhymes – The Three Little Pigs and Humpty Dumpty – to help impart 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.
I have not seen this movie yet, but it does sound adorable.
I love VeggieTales because they help impart good values for children. VeggieTales provides children with not only entertaining and delightful stories, but each story also provides children with valuable life lessons that will last a life time.
