Grinch Headband Craft For Kids [Free Template]

If you didn’t already know, our family is really into the original How The Grinch Stole Christmas movie!

There’s something about the old animation and festive songs that just can’t be replaced (we’re looking at your Jim Carrey!).

But we’re guessing since you’re sitting here reading this, you love it just as much as us!

And, if that’s true, you’re going to love making this Grinch headband craft with your kids.

It’s pretty simple thanks to the printable template that we’re giving to you, so don’t worry if you’re not an artist!

Read on below to see how simple it is to make or watch our step by step video to see it in action!

Grinch Headband Template Notes

There are 8 pages in this template, so we thought it might need a little explaining.

Inside the free printable, we’ve included three different versions.

Version number one is the full-color one.

All you have to do for this is print out on white card stock, cut out and attach the extended strips to the main part of the headband and you’re done!

It’s quick, easy and super cute, but it will use a lot of ink if you print it at home.

Version number two of the template is the exact same as number one, except that it’s in black and white.

This, of course, won’t use very much ink so it’s great for using with groups of kids. With this option, kids can color in the headband with markers, crayons or even paint (if your paper is thick enough).

Lastly, the third template has all the pieces spread out for you to make the headband craft. This is the version we show you in the video and directions.

There’s an option for any age or skill level, so don’t forget to download your free template below!
