All the fun but less of a price
on October 26, 2012
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. With all the Secular Christmas Specials that come on I feel the need to really teach my kids about the True Meaning of Christmas.
The Veggie Tales: Ultimate Christmas Collection does just that.
I got a chance to Review this collection. These are full length videos just like the original ones. Just by buying them all together you get the same movies all at a cheaper price. As a mom on a budget I really like that.
Veggie Tales are one of those shows that even if you watch them, as an Adult, they can apply to you as the parent. That's because each Veggie Tales is a story of God's Word with an application to your life.
I found myself crying with Steward as he compared his life to another's life. St. Nicholas gave me a way of teaching my kids about who St. Nicholas really was and that he gave to those in need. The Star of Christmas is a film about the struggle to be the best and how nothing else should be center in our life but Jesus. The Little Drummer Boy taught me that, without Forgiveness, bitterness and an attitude of hate will grow. The Toy That Saved Christmas reminded me of the Greed that can grow by not being content with what you have.
All tough Veggie Tales are meant for children they have a deeper meaning for Adults. Often we learn a lot through our Children.
So this year, take the time. Sit down and watch these videos with your children. My children 9,7,5, and 3 loved these videos. You as a parent will be blessed, while you laugh, cry and sing-a-long.
You can order this collection through the Veggie Tales Store. You can also get the Veggie Tales Ultimate Christmas Collection on Amazon.
Here is a brief Synopsis of each of the videos along with some fun activities for your children.
