Veggie Tale Crafts for Kids

 

Bob the Tomato Craft

Veggie Tale Bob the Tomato CraftWhat you will need: Old panty hose, red paint, paper, green felt, green chenille stem, glue, thread, and polyfil.

How to make:
1. Cut part of a leg off of your panty hose about 6" long. 
2. Gather one end of the panty hose together. Thread a needle and knot it. Stick the needle through the bunched up end of the panty hose and then wind the thread around the end. Bring the needle through the panty hose again and then cut off the needle and tie the two ends of the thread together.
3. Turn the panty hose inside out.  Stuff the panty hose with polyfil.
4. Use the leaf pattern for Bob the Tomato Bean Bags.  Cut the pattern from green felt and make a hole in the middle of the leaf. (Problems Printing?)
5. Cut a chenille stem in half. Fold the chenille stem in half and twist the ends around each other.
6. Bunch up the top of the panty hose to form the top of the tomato.  Put a little glue on the end of the stem and stick it inside the bunched up panty hose. Use some thread to close the top just like you did the bottom.  Cut off any left over panty hose.
6. Stick the felt leaf over the stem and glue it down.
7. Paint the tomato with red paint. Just about any paint will work.  Watercolor paints worked well and so did kid's paint.
8. When the paint is dry pick out some eyes and mouths from the Pattern for the Veggie Tale Balloons, cut them out, and glue them to the tomato. (Problems Printing?)

Veggie Tales Balloon Craft

Veggie Tales Balloon CraftThese adorable balloons can be used to decorate for a Veggie Tale Party or Decorating for the Veggie Tale VBS - This craft is not recommended for children. They are intended to be made by adults as decorations. Some types of balloons do not hold up well when using rubber cement. Make sure you buy a good quality balloon.

What you will need: tape, paper glue (rubber cement), balloons, paper or fun foam and pattern for eyes and mouths, black thread, black Sharpie (permanent marker).

How to make:
1. Print out the eyes and Leaf Pattern and Eyes and Mouths onto white paper. You can cut out and glue the paper patterns onto the balloons or trace the patterns onto white fun foam if you want them to last longer. (Problems Printing?)
2. Blow up the balloons and tie.  Look at the specific characters below to see what balloons are needed. To tie the nose balloons, blow up the small balloons all the way and let out most of the air. Then tie the balloons and cut off the excess part of the balloon. 
3. Make the tops of the balloons first, Bob's leaves, Laura's hair, and Junior's green hair. Look at the specific characters for directions.
4. Glue on the eyes, nose, and mouth with rubber cement (There are all different styles and they are all interchangeable, so pick whatever eyes and mouths you like. This glue works very well on the balloons.
5. To finish tie a black thread to the top to hang up the balloons.

Bob the Tomato - 1 big red balloon and 1 small round red balloon, and green craft tissue paper. To attach the leaves on the top of his head, cut out the pattern from green craft tissue.  Wrinkle up the very center of the leave and place it on the knot of the balloon and then tie black thread around it to keep it on.

Jimmy the Gourd - 1 big orange balloon, and 1 small round orange balloon, black Sharpie, (permanent marker), Green Magicraft paper sheets or craft tissue paper.

To make Jimmy's stem, use the pattern to cut the piece out of Magic Nuudles CORNstruction Paper, (these are sheets of fiber-like paper that adhere to almost anything by just dipping them in water.)  I found them at "Learning is Fun."  If you don't want to buy this paper, you can make a paper mache glue by adding water to white glue and dipping green craft tissue paper into the mixture to form the stem.

Laura the Carrot - 1 long orange balloon and 1 small round orange or red balloon, 2 sheets of yellow craft tissue paper 20" x 26", thick black yarn

To make Laura's hair roll and scrunch up two sheets of yellow craft tissue paper.  Tie the tissue in the center with black yarn loosely.  Tie two more times on each side to form the pig tails. Glue the hair onto the balloon using rubber cement.

Junior Asparagus - 1 long green balloon (I used the animal sculpture balloons, the very long skinny type that you twist and make animal shapes)  (You can  make several characters out of one balloon) and 1 small round green balloon and green craft Nuudles. (I bought my Magic Nuudles at "Learning is Fun." Nuudles are similar to the corn starch packaging peanuts that dissolve in water except they come in different colors. If you don't want to buy nuudles you can use the packaging nuudles instead. When they are dry just paint them green.

To make Junior's hair dip the nuudles into a little bit of all the way around water and press onto the top of Juniors head to make his hair. Start from the bottom and work up to the top of his head. The nuudles shrink and dissolve as they dry so you may have to add more nuudles as they dry. The nuudles also get much darker when you wet them so don't worry about their light color. After his hair is dry glue on his eyes and nose. Use a permanent marker to draw on the mouth.

3. Cut pieces of crepe paper into 3-inch squares. Wade them up into balls.   Glue on the crepe paper balls to form Junior's hair.
4. Glue the block onto the back of the paint stick and drill a hole in the block at an angle so that you can hang the hat holder on a nail on your wall.

Jerry and Jimmy Gourd Craft

Veggie Tale Jerry and Jimmy Gourd CraftWhat you will need: Gourds (you can grow your own or buy them at a craft store)   If you can't find real ones, you might be able to find fake ones.  Real ones work better because all the gourds will have their own shape and personality.
