To make our glow-in-the-dark Grinch slime I prepared a batch of our favorite slime and then added a holiday scent.  I also cut Grinch face shapes out of craft foam.  My kids had so much fun with this slime!

My kids have had so much fun with this slime!  They love stretching and pulling it to create oozing Grinch faces.

They couldn't keep their hands out of this stuff and loved to watch it OOZE!  Add heart shaped cookie cutters, and kids will have a blast making oozing Grinch hearts.


Add Grinch figurines, and the opportunities for play are endless!

Making Grinch Face Shapes:
All you need is craft foam and scissors.  I used a photo of the Grinch to help me draw his features on craft foam.  Then, I cut the shapes with scissors.  My kids loved using the Grinch face shapes to make oozing Grinch faces.


Grinch Slime Party Favors:

Materials:
Fill the containers with slime, and you are all set with a holiday favor that kids of all ages are sure to love!


Storage & Tips:  Store your slime in an air tight container between play times, and it can be used again & again.
While you do not need a blacklight for this activity I do recommend using one.  It makes the slime glow MUCH brighter.  You can use a blacklight flashlight or a fixture.  The flashlights are really fun for kids!
