One of my family’s favorite traditions is our Christmas movie night. We invite the cousins over, get pizza and eat lots of yummy treats! Oh yeah, and we squeeze in watching a Christmas movie! 😉 It’s such a fun night that my kiddos look forward to all season.
This year we chose to make The Grinch our feature film…we love all versions of this movie!! It was such a fun night filled with all things green, and I’m excited to share all of the details with you.
How to Host a Grinch Party:
Throwing an amazing party doesn’t need to be stressful. That’s the number one secret of throwing an amazing party…keep it simple so you can enjoy it as well!
Let’s talk about all of the green and Grinchy (yes it’s a word ;)) details!
Where does every great party start? With the food of course! We had some fun and simple Grinch treats that were a huge hit with our party goers.
This Grinch popcorn could not be simpler. Start with clear plastic cups, add a cute heart sticker and fill it with yummy chocolate popcorn.
To make the popcorn, I used green melting chocolate and simply drizzled it over plain air popped popcorn. Top it off with green M&M’s and you have a simple and yummy Grinch treat.
Grinch Rice Krispie Treats:
I have to give credit to my cute hubby for this next idea. He brainstormed these cuties and I love the way they turned out. And best of all, it’s as simple as making Rice Krispie Treats!
Simply make the Rice Krispie Treats as directed splitting the batch. You won’t need as many of the red Rice Krispie Treats you will only need about a 1/4 of the batch for the red. Add the food coloring after the marshmallows are melted.
When the Rice Krispies are set, use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut your Rice Krispies making these cute Grinch hearts.
How cute are these!? Simply make your favorite flavor of cupcakes and add these cute cupcake toppers, this is my favorite recipe for cupcakes.
Here are the cute cupcake toppers to print. You can right click and save this tag to your computer, open in a program like Word or Pages then size how you want and print.
Or, here’s a PDF file with a bunch of tags on it that you can just print and use:
This drink might just be my new favorite! It is very tasty, and could not be simpler. We mixed our ice cubes with Sprite and for the adults we used Mountain Dew…seriously, so good!
- Prep Time: 10 Minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 2 Ice Cube Trays 1x
For the Ice Cubes:
- 1 Package Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid
- 1 1/2 Cups Pineapple Juice
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 1/2 Cups Water
- Mountain Dew
Mix all of the ingredients for the ice cubes together. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze.
Pour over your drink of choice.
Now that we have the food taken care of, let’s talk about what we are going to do at this party…other than watch the Grinch of course! 🙂
Grinch Party Games:
Playing bingo while watching the movie adds a little fun to your movie watching experience. Here are several blank bingo boards ready for your guests to fill in. Have each player fill in the squares with things they expect to see while watching the movie. If you are playing with kiddos who know the movie well enough and can “stack” the answers, tell them they will be switching their boards after they are all filled in. That way you don’t have anyone trying to line up their answers.
Here are all of the boards you can print.

Grow the Grinch’s Heart Party Game:
This ended up being a fun game that was super simple. I got clothes pins and used hot glue to attach these heart buttons on them. When each guest comes, give them a clothes pin. The rules of the game are simple, no one can say the word Grinch. If you hear someone say it, you take their pin. The person who ends up with the most pins wins!
This has been such a fun tradition for my family, I hope it becomes one of your too!
Have FUN throwing this Grinch party!
