How to make a popsicle stick grinch craft for kids!
- Start off by using 3 popsicle sticks cut down to support the back of the other 8. I have used cardstock in the past and it works but I have found that supporting it with craft sticks works a little better.
- Once the glue is dry you can flip over the craft and paint the entire front a grinchy green, a very technical color. Haha!
- Using your red and white construction paper, cut out the Santa hat and glue the white pieces onto the red. This doesn’t have to be perfect as the Grinch didn’t cut out his fabric hat perfectly either.
- Now take a little craft glue to attach the hat and use a black sharpie to draw on the Grinch’s face. We chose to make a happy Grinch. You can do the same or make his sly look.
- Finish up your Grinch with some white and blue in the eyes and add a little dimension to the hat with a sharpie.
- Finally, if you want to turn him into a magnet I recommend a .75-inch adhesive magnet to hold it up. You could also attach some ribbon and turn him into an ornament.
