You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch! But your heart might grow 3 sizes with this darling Paper Bag Grinch Craft, especially when you read on to find just how easy it is!
The Grinch has always been a favorite. What is there not to love? He’s green, he’s grumpy, he has a cute little puppy. He dresses up like Santa and somehow manages to fool everyone. Yet, in the end, it’s a story of inclusion and redemption, along with a reminder of just what’s important about the holidays.
For our Paper Bag Grinch Craft you will need brown paper lunch bags, white cotton balls, red cardstock, red and green acrylic paint, medium googly eyes, a black sharpie, scissors, and glue.
Paper Bag Grinch Craft
- Paper lunch bags
- White cotton balls
- Acrylic paint – red and green
- Red cardstock
- Googly eyes, medium size
- Black sharpie
- School glue
Begin by painting the paper bag.
The part from under the flap down is painted red.
The flap part will be painted green. Let the paint dry completely.
Cut a floppy triangle shape to fit the width of the paper bag from the red cardstock.
Fold the tip of the hat down and glue in place. Adhere a cotton ball at the tip. Also glue cotton balls around the brim of the hat.
And glue cotton balls across the collar.
Then glue 2 cotton balls down the front for buttons.
Adhere googly eyes.
Finally, draw a mouth and mean eyebrows with a black sharpie to complete the Grinch.
