Very Veggie Fun

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

This afternoon we picked our first two tomatoes off the little plant we have been nursing in our garden.  It was rewarding for the kiddos.  Unfortunately, rather than getting eaten they ended up squished by Mr. 2yo.  Oops! 

Anyway, it got me thinking about collecting some veggie crafts and activities.

Living Locurto put together the most adorable fresh vegetable bouquets.

The School Vegetable Patch used slices of vegetables to make artistic prints.

These On The Farm Vegetable Puppets from Kids' Activities look like a fun project. (You will have to scroll down the page a bit for this activity)

If you are just starting your garden, perhaps you would like to make markers for your vegetables like these from Kiddie Gardens.  (This site is also a good resource for other home garden suggestions)

I Can Teach My Child used  some favorite veggie characters to make stained glass art for their sunny summer windows.
Danielle's Place suggests several veggie tale projects.  I especially like the veggie balloon creatures.

Catholic Icing explains a very simple DIY veggie toy.

Cheerios Underfoot shares a tutorial for making Larry the Cucumber.

Pam's House has created mini lesson plans to accompany several episodes of Veggie Tales.
