We hosted a How the Grinch Stole Christmas party for Peyton's class room party. It was so much fun and the kids LOVED the theme! We included Grinch Dust in all of the kids treat bags. They were so excited and said they couldn't wait to put in on their front lawn instead of the reindeer food this year. I think that for the 3rd graders the Grinch Dust would be a great alternative to Reindeer Food.
I made the Grinch Dust using granulated sugar and a small bottle of green food coloring. I started by dropping the food coloring on the sugar and then I used a rubber spatula to mix I added more sugar until I got the color that I wanted. You can add more or less food coloring and sugar and then allow to dry by removing the lid for about 30 minutes. You can use this method to make colored granulated sugar for any of your decorating needs!
Next I placed 1/4 cup into each snack sized ziploc bag and added this cute poem on a slip of paper to the bag:
Don’t let the Grinch steal your Christmas. You must be on your guard.
Before bedtime on Christmas Eve, sprinkle this dust in your yard.
The Grinch will see the magic dust and know you have taken great care
To protect your home and keep the Christmas spirit alive!
