Glue the feet to the bottom of the Grinch body.

Secure the arms on either side of the Grinch body.

Glue the scarf to the Grinch’s neck, just beneath the handprint.

Place the eyebrows towards the top of the palm and glue in place.

Glue the googly eyes or make the eyes with colored paper and glue into place beneath the eyebrows.

Make a nose for the Grinch by cutting out a circle from the dark green card stock or use a green pom pom and glue into place.

Craft Benefits For Kids

Besides being fun for kids to make, there are loads of other benefits kids will get out of making this craft! 

First, this activity is amazing for working on fine motor skills.

Not only will kids have to cut out all the pieces of their Grinch character, but they’ll also have to work on the placement of each piece when they glue it together. 

If the kids are old enough, they can also help a friend trace their handprint onto the paper. Both of these tasks will require precision and hand strength.

This craft will also help kids to follow directions. 

If your kids are proficient readers, you can print out the directions below and allow them to read through them individually and ask you for any questions they may have. This is such a valuable skill for kids to be able to read, understand and follow directions correctly. 

Finally, and maybe most importantly, crafting helps kids express themselves and their creativity.
