Veggies Tales: Larry Boy and the Rumor Weed

Veggie Tales is a great series about vegetable characters that learn lessons about God through their everyday life.  My boys loved these movies when they were young and there was always a great message or life lesson to be learned.  In this movie, Larry Boy is a superhero, cucumber who tries to save the town from being taken over by the Rumor Weed.  It is a great lesson about seeing how fast a rumor can grow and spread just like a living weed.


Weeds and meatballs (your favorite spaghetti and meatball dish)

Leafy Salad (your favorite greens, we like romaine and spinach)

Flower Sugar Cookies (at the end of the movie, the flowers take over the weeds)*


*Flower Sugar Cookies – Prepare your favorite sugar cookie recipe or buy Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough.  Slice cookie dough into rounds and bake according to package directions.  Once cooled, let the kids decorate into flowers of their choice using icing, sprinkles or their favorite small candies.
