Some "Zoey" Projects!

2.08.2008


Ethan, Zoey and I have only just recently (not sure what took us so long) discovered the joys of Veggie Tales stories, songs and yes, videos. They are awesome! Last weekend Ethan and I actually were sitting on the couch together watching the "making of Veggie Tales" (you know those little extras that they have as bonus features on dvd's) and were laughing until we were crying. They are that funny and that genius, I swear! On one segmant they actually used the theme music to Vertigo and did a spin on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Hilarious stuff and Zoey loves these little veggies so much (that's putting it mildly!). You can perhaps tell that Larry is her favorite as he is the most wrinkled (loved).

After doing a little searching online I discovered some Veggie Tales projects for kids here. So here are Zoey's veggies, Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Junior Asparagus, Laura the Carrot, and Percy the Pea...and we have more, but I thought this would give you the general idea. Anyways, we colored, cut out all the little pieces, glued them together and I, of course had to go the extra mile and suggest that we cover them with plastic so they last forever, so we then used some self laminating plastic and now today I have the idea that it would be cool to make a felt background and attach bits of velcro to the backs of these guys so she could have a little Veggie Tale storyboard to play with. We'll see...


Anyways, just had to share what's up and exciting here these days. I am also super excited to have learned (after owning for 3+ months now) how to use our scanner! What was my first project? Scanning these fun little guys and gals of course! And to leave you with just a bit more, here is the Bellybutton Song (one of our favorites).

these are so cute! so is the scanner better/easier than resizing the images?

Veggie Tales is great hey? I have some friends that owned all the videos before they even had children! It's very entertaining, and usually a great meaning behind it all!
