FRIDAY GIVEAWAY: Veggie Tales St. Nicholas DVD


As the holiday season approaches, our children are bombarded with commercials for the latest and greatest new toys. We love this new Veggie Tales DVD and the message it sends to our kiddos.
Discover the power of a simple gift! Laura Carrot’s Christmas stocking might be empty this year because her dad is in danger of losing his job. While Larry thinks a letter to the North Pole should fix the problem, Bob knows what will really help…and tells the story of a little boy named Nicholas who made a discovery in Bethlehem that changed Christmas forever. But what did Nick learn and how can it possibly help Laura and her family? Find out as the Veggies discover the true joy of giving to others—at Christmas time and throughout the year!

  1. This one is tough. My kids are always grateful when I make corn bread or do laundry, they are oozing gratefulness. But they are not always grateful when it comes to gifts... greed slips in. One thing we did this year was to have the kids make cards and ornaments for the important people in their lives. I also had them pick out a present for each other to give on Christmas. They were very thoughtful with their choices.

  2. I'd love to win this for my daughter who loves VeggieTales.

    We are trying to teach our daughter that not everyone is as fortunate as she is and how important is is to give to charities.

  8. My pumpkins are 2 1/2 and 11mths so the furthest we've gotten with gratitude are the basics..."you always say please and thank you"...but these are foundational building blocks right?!?

  20. Gratitude...begin when they are little, and emphasize manners, thanking for the little things. Not giving in to the "but Johnny gets to..." or "they have _____, why can't I?"
    Lots of discussions, in real life, and when watching TV...movies...reading books.
    Eventually they grow up, and hopefully some of it has rubbed off!!

  24. One thing friend of mine do is each time they get mail (they are missionaries to Russia), they open it with their children and then immediately pray and thank God for the people who sent the card or package and ask God to bless them. I think that's such a nice gesture.

  30. We don't have a lot of money so whenever we can afford to give the grandkids anything they are always very grateful. They always say thank you and follow up with a big hug. My granddaughter went through her room and gave many of her toys away to the poor. I think they are pretty much okay in the gratitude department. I love them all for that. Thank you!

  41. I try to teach them gratitude by allowing them to see that some people in this world are less fortunate than we are and that we should give to those people and feel blessed to have as much as we do.

  51. For my children, the holidays this year have been especially helpful in allowing them to understand the entire notion of being grateful. With so many children going without, I took my children along in my volunteer efforts to provide toys, food, and clothing for the underprivileged children in our community. Seeing it for themselves, really had an impact on them.

  53. How do I answer? I am not sure. I know we try to teach the boys to be respectful; I think that we try to stress that other children do not have as much as they do and they should be thankful for all of the good things they have. Thank you

  66. I foster gratitude in my children in different ways. At Christmas time we adopt a family from the angel tree and each child uses some of their allowance to buy the presents for the children of the family. They all work so hard for their allowances so by giving they are learning about what it is to give and also be grateful for what they have. I also foster gratitude by telling them how grateful I am for them, having a family, a roof over our head and having something to eat. My mom always told me that the best example I could ever set for my children is the example of doing. that they are grateful as they know I am. Our family, like so many families, have been hit hard by the economy, so I think they are grateful for what they have as they see so many who are without.
