In past Grinch Day Celebrations, I've made the Grinch dust at home
and given it to the kids as a special treat....
But this year, I made the Grinch Dust with the kids...and it was kind of a neat thing!
First, the kids scooped 1/4 cup of something sweet smelling
(like sugar, but as scientists...we know we NEVER taste something that we don't know what it is:)
To the sweet smelling white crystals,
we added two drops of love
(yellow food coloring which turns kind of a red color when it touches the sugar)
and two drops of joy
(blue food coloring)
After the bag is zipped tight, the kids gently add some hugs to the mixture.
As the kids continued to hug their love and joy together with the sweet smelling crystals,
the grinch dust created was a magical delight for all!
The final step was to add the Grinch Dust poem that explained what to do with the dust!
I love our projects on
How to Make the Grinch Grin....
This year, I decided to get a close up picture of the kids with their grinchy ways to make the Grinch smile before creating the final movie with their projects.
They recorded their grinchy ways to add with their pictures!
It was a great day in the swamp!
