How the Grinch Collects Food For Christmas

This year at my school, the lunch ladies wanted to organize a food drive to collect food for our local Food Bank.

They want to help feed the needy people in our area.

So they asked me for help to create a focal point that would encourage the kids to participate and really donate BIG!

Our  lunch ladies thought that if they used the Grinch, it would make a big statement and really help in collecting lots of food for the Food Bank.

They have told the kids that they get to help the Grinch grow his heart even bigger this year.


So enjoy the pictures and watch as I turn plain old cardboard into some of the season’s most beloved characters.

This is Cindy Lou and Max. As you can see they began as a cardboard box, but now they are starting to take shape.

Here they are all painted. Cindy Lou stands 2′ 4″. and Max with his antlers is as tall as her.

Here is the Grinch.

Now all he needs is some color.

Here he is in all his glory. He stands 5′ tall.


grinch and crew all painted






Here they all are standing next to my 12 yr old. This gives you a really good idea of their size.

Here is the Grinch’s Sled. We will put this on either side of a large pallet to collect the food on.

Here they are all set up and as you can see, his sled is already filling up fast.
