I told the kids, “fingers apart – we’re making turkeys.. fingers together – we’re making grinchs..” We’re a huge fan of The Grinch in this house, so what better to make then Grinch handprint ornaments art for the Christmas tree.
- Green paint
- Sharpie marker
- foam brushes
- Construction paper (white & red paper)
- Cotton Balls
- pipe cleaners
- googly eyes
- Paint your hand with green paint and make a hand print on a white sheet of paper.
- Let dry for at least 5 minutes until the paint is dry.
- If you use the green paint and connect the thumb print to the rest of the hand to make the Grinch’s head.
- Cut out the hand print, leaving some white paper showing around the edges.
- Cut out a triangle in red paper and place that over the fingers.
- Place a cotton ball on the top of the Santa hat and at the bottom of the Santa hat.
“It came without ribbons, it came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags. Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas (the thought) means a little bit more.”
– The Grinch
This is a craft the kids all had a blast doing, because they were able to make it personal. We don’t have a tree big enough to hang all the Grinch handprint ornaments on, so we just put them on above the stockings and our tree in our room.
This is so stinking cute!! This was also a really great written instruction on how to do this project with the kids.
I work at a public library and I am sure the kids would love something like this. I will pass this on to the children’s librarian.
The story of the Grinch is one of our holiday favorites. I love that we can celebrate with this adorable craft. Plus, anything that reminds me of how tiny my littles were makes this mama’s heart grow three sizes.
These are seriously so cute! I’ll have to have these on my radar for next year for sure!
This reminds me of the art activities I did with my kids when they were younger…nowadays, my oldest paints, draws, and animates…simple art activities back then, bigger canvasses tomorrow! Keep it up! 🙂
Somehow I missed seeing these before Christmas, but I am STILL going to do them with my Grinch obsessed four year old and put them up for next year!! Thanks for sharing the cuteness!
These are so cute! My son is obsessed with the Grinch this year, he would love to do a craft like this. I’ll have to see how he likes it, thanks for sharing!
This is super cute! Pinned!
This is such a super cute idea. What a great holiday craft for kids!
So cute!! Thank you!
The grandkids and I can have fun making these Grinch faces. Maybe we will do the tree with them. thanks

This is such a cute & fun activity! My daughter would enjoy making this!
