For my son's fourth birthday party, we held a Veggie Tales themed party. As there are not many options for decorations, I created a lot on my own.
These cardboard roll Veggie Tales characters can be made with or without your children's help. I painted them all myself but your child could easily do the painting and even the decorating depending upon their age.

2. Paint your rolls (depending on which characters you want to create, you will need different colors).
Green: Larry, Peas, Mr. Nezzer, Pa Grape, Archibald, Petunia, Junior, the scallions
Orange: Laura, Jimmy, Scooter, the Peach
Blue: Madame Blueberry
Yellow: Mr. Lunt and Jerry
3. After your rolls are dry, draw faces on your characters.
4. Cut out needed materials for your characters and attach them to the dry, painted rolls.

We used our characters as decorations and after the party the children have been playing with them. After almost two weeks, they are still in pretty good shape considering they are just cardboard.
