How the Grinch Stole Christmas DIY Ornaments for Toddlers
We found a box of green ornaments for sale at the end of the year and used these in our toddler group to make these quickly when we read the book out loud.
With the toddler group, I prepared everything in advance bought a bag of ready cut foam hearts (they too were on sale at the end of Valentines Day last year) and let the mums and toddlers make them themselves. Some turned out with many many many hearts on them. Whereas others just liked to put one on and move onto the next activity.
Don’t forget to dig out your How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss Book and either head to the cinema or find the movie this Christmas.

How to Make The Grinch Stole Christmas Craft for Toddlers
- In advance take your ribbon and cut a few strands long enough to make ornament hooks with a loop. Place these in a bowl for you and your toddler to use.
- Put the hearts into a separate bowl and the baubles as well.
- Take a foam heart and the tacky glue now glue the heart onto the green ornaments.
- Let your toddler create how they want. If they want more than one heart – well the Grinches Heart Grew and Grew and Grew so they can have more hearts if they want.
- Now it’s time to take those strands of ribbon and thread them onto the ornament.
- Either tie the ribbon into a bow at the top or tie a knot.
- Hang on your Christmas Tree and enjoy a Grinch Inspired Christmas Movie or Book Night with the little ones.
