We are the Vegetables

 (tune: Mary had a little lamb)
We are pumpkins, big and round,
Big and round, big and round.
We are pumpkins, big and round,
Seated on the ground.
 (then try the following) 

We are string beans green and fine…..growing on a vine.
We are onions round and white….we make soup taste right.
We are carrots, orange and long…help us sing the song.
We are cabbage green or red….see our funny head.
We are corn stalks tall and straight…don’t we just taste great!

Vegetable song

(Tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”)
Carrots, Peas, and Broccoli,
Vegetables are good for me.
For my snack and in my lunch,
Veggie sticks are great to munch.
Carrots, Peas, and Broccoli,
Vegetables are good for me.

Yummy Vegetable Song

(Tune: “Old MacDonald Had A Farm”)
Vegetables are good for me, EE I EE I O
And so I eat them happily, EE I EE I O
(Children take turns naming vegetables that they like)
With a carrot, carrot here, and a carrot, carrot there
Here a carrot, there a carrot
Everywhere a carrot, carrot.
Vegetables are good for me, EE I EE I O.

Meet the Veggies

Tomato: I’m round and red And juicy too.
Chop me for a salad,
Or dump me in your stew!

Lettuce: Hey, wait a minute!
If a salad you’re fixin’
I can stand alone.
No need for the mixin’!

Onion: Chop me and slice me
But keep water near.
I sometimes get juicy
And can bring on a tear!

Carrot: Orange is my color;
I stand long and lean.
In the garden you’ll see
Just my bright leaves of green.

Pea: I live in a pod
With so many others.
I think I was born
With one hundred brothers!

Green Bean: Look in the garden;
You’ll see my sign.
Then bring out your basket
When it’s pickin’ time!

Potato: I’ve an eye for perfection
To give you the best.
Baked, mashed or fried-
I’ll pass the test!

Cabbage: My head is quite thick
So people tell me.
I guess that’s the reason
Grocery stores sell me!

Celery: Cut and rinse my stalks,
Then spread on cream cheese.
A refreshing hors d’oeuvre
To make parties a breeze!

Squash: Some call me a game,
A game of good sport,
But I’m really to eat
As a side dish of sorts!

Brussel Sprout: I’m kinda cute
When I’m served on a plate
I’m just a little mouthful.
You can eat six or eight!

Cauliflower: I carry white flowers
To break off and eat.
I’m sometimes served raw,
A nutritious snack treat!

Broccoli: My friends call me trees
Now that’s a funny name.
Though I am a dark green
With stalks just the same.

We’re the veggies You should eat every day! 
Now don’t make a face. We’re as good as we say!
