One of my earliest childhood holiday memories is sitting in front of the TV in our living, impatiently waiting for The Grinch to start. My dad didn’t watch much TV (he still doesn’t to this day) but he always made it a point to sit with my sister and I and watch his favorite classics – “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “The Grinch”. So The Grinch has always been one of my favorites and I was beyond thrilled when I heard Illuminations was releasing a new film based on the classic. Then, Origami Owl announced that through our amazing partnership, we would be revealing an exclusive collection – The Grinch By Origami Owl.
You can check out Bella & Chrissy, two of our founders, sharing the collection here:
I’m so excited to share this collection with you…but I might be even more excited to wear some of the collection when I take my girls to see the movie premiere this weekend! I love the message in the story of the Grinch, especially since my girls are both very young and we are trying to instill in them the true meaning of the holidays. I think adding some of The Grinch charms to my locket this year will be a great reminder that Christmas isn’t about the material, but about those we love.
He puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!
In celebration of the release, we are spending the week doing all things The Grinch. Here are some of the fun things we are planning to do:
Make Grinch themed popcorn – TwoSistersCrafting.com Grinch Popcorn
Create Grinch themed fruit kabobs – Everydaysavvy Grinch Fruit Kabobs
Grinch Toilet Paper Roll craft – Craftymorning.com Grinch Toilet Paper Roll Craft
These seemed like pretty simple, fun things we could do together before creating our Grinch lockets and heading to the movie on Friday night!
Here’s a few peeks at some of the pieces in this new collection!
Be sure to head to theaters this Friday, November 9th to see Illumination presents Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch! Check the times for your local theater here.
