Thursday was one of my FAVORITE days! It was GRINCH DAY! Take a peek at all the Grinchy goodness we enjoyed. Be sure to grab some freebies along the way!
First up, you obviously can’t have Grinch Day without purchasing the following:
I have a family who has Grinch decorations in their front yard, so I
begged asked the dad to bring the Grinch to our class for the day! The kids had so much fun posing with him.
This quote is one of my favorite quotes from the book! What a beautiful reminder of what the Christmas season should be about! We’ve all gotten far too wrapped up (pardon that pun!) in the commercialism of it! I love this little ornament that highlights that quote! Search Pinterest for a cute print like this, and modpodge it onto a thin sheet of wood. Add a ribbon and you’re ready for a Grinch-inspired tree!
Another fun activity we did on Grinch Day was Grinch directed drawings. I made “Merry Grinchmas” frames for them to draw inside. The little lady who drew this one just happens to be the one whose dad drew and painted our Grinch wooden cut out. She’s quite the artist just like here dad. Check out her amazing drawing:
Instructions for the directed drawings are found here.
In Math we completed a Grinchy mystery picture using a 100’s chart. This fabulous freebie can be found on the AMAZING First Grade Wow blog!
We also did a little craftivity to explain how to make the Grinch grin. These were really fun to make and read! We used craft templates made by me and a writing prompt created by Teri, A Cupcake for the Teacher.
One of the girls brought in these adorable Good Deed Trackers from Books-a-Million. They were too cute!
Our party was spear-headed by our room mom who is a FABULOUS party planner. She left no detail unfinished! She created adorable Who Christmas trees for the centerpieces. Our feast included Grinch Kabobs, Pretzels, Cookies, and Mini Cupcakes with Grinch Signs on them. Of course we had Grinch Juice to drink!
For a fun (and messy) craft, we made Who Christmas trees using ice cream cones, green icing, and edible decorations!
AND no party is complete without lots of Grinchy attire and Who Hair!
