Grinch Day has always been a classroom favorite of mine. I decided to try out a NEW (to me) activity this year. After watching my favorite non-scary SHORT version of the Grinch, students made Grinch Dust to keep the Grinch from stealing their presents on Christmas Eve. Keep reading for some FREE printables you can use in your own Grinch Day festivities!
Grinch Dust Recipe
All you’ll need for this magical recipe is sugar, some yellow and blue food coloring, and some green glitter. Before making the recipe, I had students predict what would happen when we mixed yellow and blue food coloring together. After several correct guesses, I let students spoon 2 spoonfuls of sugar in a ziploc bag, add a few drops of yellow and blue food coloring, then add a scoop of green glitter so the Grinch can see it shining in the moonlight! Then, we sealed the bag and students rubbed everything together to turn the sugar green–the Grinch’s FAVORITE color!
Students will get to take their Grinch Dust home and follow the directions on the bag!
How to Make the Grinch Grin
While I was helping each student make their Grinch Dust, the other students worked on this fun page. You can grab this FREEBIE by clicking HERE.
Students got to take home their picture, their Grinch Dust, and a green candy cane that was licked by the Grinch himself! You can grab FREE printables of the Grinch Dust poem and the candy cane poem by clicking HERE.
