You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch! How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a favorite in our home. My husband and I both grew up reading the book and watching the original Grinch cartoon on television each Christmas. When we had children we decided to take our love for the Grinch a step further by incorporating a day dedicated to the green guy as part of our Christmas traditions. In this post you will learn everything you need for Grinch themed day of your own. Each year we set aside one day where we focus our attention on all things Grinch which includes crafts, food, activities and ends with us watching Grinch as a family.
It’s something my kids look forward to each year and I’m sure your family will too!
In my heart, I know my kids are only going to be little for a short time so I want to do everything I can to make Christmas as magical as possible. Having a day dedicated to one of their favorite Christmas characters gets them so excited which makes me so happy to set it up for them. Hopefully, you will find inspiration in this article to host your own version of a Grinch Day. If you do, I’d love to hear about it in the comment section. MERRY GRINCHMAS!

Here’s everything you need for Christmas Themed Day.
Grinch Party Supplies
First and foremost you need the decor to set the tone of your fun themed day! My kids love it when I use speciality plates and napkins to serve our food. Here you will find everything you need to make your Grinch Day even better! These cute and festive party supplies help add to an already fun filled day. Everything I listed can easily be found on Amazon or printed at home from ETSY. All I want is to help making setting up your very own Grinch Day for your family as simple as possible.
Let’s get into it!
GRINCH DAY DECOR
Set the scene for your Grinch Day party with this adorable Welcome To Whoville banner. You can redesign a room in your home to become Whoville for the day starting with this super inviting banner. Imagine your kids feeling like they’ve been swept away to Whoville – they are going to L-O-V-E it!
What better way to kick off Grinch Day then with the Grinch himself. This Grinch shaped balloon is the newest addition for our day that I’m looking forward to most. I cannot wait to see my little gals reaction when she wakes up and sees this guy for the first time.
PRO TIP: Invest in a balloon pump for the house. Last year I purchased this pump because I found myself spending an insane amount of money on balloons from all the party supply stores when I could do it myself at a home. I got my money’s worth in the first month alone. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I got a bunch of these Grinch head balloons to sprinkle throughout the house so our pal is always with us on the day we dedicate to him.

Grinch Day is allll about the treats – am I right? This year I plan on adding a full on dessert table for one of our favorite Christmas traditions. Since the kids are getting older they were allowed to invite two friends to Grinch Day this year so I want the dessert table to be extra inviting. Rice Krispy treats are always a hit so these Grinch Rice Krispy Treat wrappers from ETSY are a no brainer. They are a digital download so you can print them right at home making them so easy to use.
Continuing with the Grinch Day snacks and treats – here’s another fabulous Grinch digital download from ETSY. You can now print Capri Sun covers with this adorable Grinch graphic. How cute are these Grinch juices going to look lined up on your dessert table? I think this is one of the best new ideas I found this year. I can’t wait to see these in action.

The only supplies you need to use all of these incredible digital paper supplies I found are a printer, scissors/paper cutter and double sided tape. The instructions to use these labels could not be easier!
Our dessert table vision is really coming together thanks to these digital downloads I found on ETSY. Another cute addition to your Grinch dessert table are these Grinch chip bags. You can add these to your favorite chips for a fun holiday look.
