This holiday season will be magical with these super easy, fun Grinch crafts to make. Do your students love the Grinch stole Christmas story? The craft I’ll be sharing below is perfect for teaching kids all about smiling even when there are super tough times, looking at the brighter side of life. With this craft, kids get to write about and name things that they can smile or ‘grin’ about under their craft. This is even better than a plain paper plate Grinch craft.

This printable Grinch Christmas craft is perfect for all ages, you will just have to modify it a little to make it accessible by all.

Fun ideas Cute Grinch Craft
You will need some supplies for this craft:
- Green paint or print the colored template instead
- Black marker for writing the letters on the balls for the hat
- Red coloring pencils (optional) or print the colored template
After the kids watch the Grinch movie, talk about it and its themes.
Ask them why do they think the Grinch was unhappy. WHat were his reasons etc. The kids normally get into this easily naming things the Grinch hates.
This would make a great Grinch activities and ideas for Christmas season. You could even add these templates to a Grinch handprint Christmas card if you wish.

Easy Grinch Craft for Social Emotional Learning
For the Grinch’s eyes and Grinch’s face, you would use a printable photo of the child’s face, you can however draw them on. It’s a fun way to extend the activity.
I also like using cotton balls to decorate the craft. You could add as many as you need without the letters.
However, in this craft I added some empty cotton balls where you can add the letters of the child’s name.
A great extension activity for name writing and name arts and crafts which I write so much about on this blog.
