Grinch Activities

Christmas Season without the Grinch, I think not! There are plenty of activities that you can do with your minions, if you know where to look. {Those darn copyright laws!} Here is what we enjoyed.

First and foremost, you have to get in the mood.

After the song, read the book to your little ones. We pack ours with our Christmas decorations so that it is readily available upon Christmas season. If you don’t have a book, I recommend reserving early at your library – this baby goes FAST this season. {I recommend starting each Grinch Day with the song & book then ending with the cartoon :)}

There. Now that you are properly Grinched, we can begin.

Thanks to Seussville.com, there are some fun activities that you can do with your little ones and turn them into lessons.  The site offers coloring sheets and activities that we used throughout the day. I placed the mazes, crossword puzzles, and connect-the-dot sheets into binder covers so they could be used again and again {learn how you can make your own DIY Dry-Erase Board here}.

Now, to turn these minions into Grinches!

I was able to find Grinch Masks template at EarlyMoments.com {along with some other fun printables!}. The kids got to color and cut them out {I helped with the eyes} and then they acted out the Grinch story. It was fun to watch!

We like to incorporate a little art into our lessons each week and Rob at ArtForKidsHub.com is our go to place! I love how he goes through each step with his kids. Here is the link to the video tutorial and the step-by-step drawing instructions. This encourages our children as well. I will admit, the Grinch Lesson is one of his earlier ones {so out-dated from like 2013!} so he goes at a quicker pace. The great thing is the lovely pause button allows your little ones to keep up easily.


Grinchly Snack:

The kids had fun with this! Using grapes, bananas, strawberries, marshmallows and toothpicks, they got to create {and then eat} their own Grinches! Using plastic serving wear from Dollar Tree, I made one sample and showed them the steps. From there, they went to work! They did a great job of following directions and creating some yummy {and mostly healthy} treats.
