- Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
- Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
- Lightweight Cardboard (cereal box, etc)
- Construction Paper
- Cellophane Tape
- Paint Brush
Cut an antler shape out of lightweight cardboard that looks similar to the one Max wears in the Grinch movie or TV show. Paint it white. Set it aside to dry.
Measure around your head by starting at the top of your head and measuring down around one ear, below your chin, and back up the other side of your head. Cut a thin strip of red paper (the Grinch used red thread to hold Max's antler on!) to fit snuggly around your head; you might have to attach 2 pieces together to get it long enough. It should be about 1-inch thick.
Use tape or a stapler to connect the ends of the red strip around your head. Hold the antler to the red strip on the top of your head and place a piece of tape on both sides of the antler to hold it in place.
You now have an antler headband that looks like Max's!
