How to Fold a Towel Grinch Body
For the towel grinch body start with one green bath towel. Lay towel out flat and tightly roll both sides to the center from the short end.
Fold rolled towel in half rolled sides out. Pull the tips out of the end of each roll.
Take the tips from both ends of one roll in one hand and both ends of the other roll in the other hand.
Pull both sides at the same time until the towel pulls out into the arms and legs of a towel body.
Place towel body in seated position. Drape red hand towel over back of body and fold around the arms to make sleeves. Tuck any excess red towel under the body and legs.
How to Make a Towel Grinch Head
Hang center of one edge of long side of green hand towel on a hook or peg or tuck it under your chin. Adjust towel so both ends hang evenly. Tightly roll both sides to the center. Roll both sides together, keeping rolls as tight as possible from top to bottom.
When finished, set towel down on a flat surface rolled side down. Fold the loose ends over the top of the towel and roll starting from the wide end of the towel. Tuck the pointy end in between the rolls. A towel rolled tightly enough will hold together on its own once the end is tucked.
Make Grinch eyes from red, yellow, and black construction paper. Use double stick tape to attach eyes and pompom nose onto Grinch head. Set head onto Grinch body. Adjust red towel around head.
Finishing the Towel Grinchy Claus
Set small Santa hat on Grinch’s head. If you were unable to find a small enough hat fold a bigger one inside of itself to shrink it to size and use safety pins to hold it at the size you want. Put strips of cotton around the ends of the red towel sleeves and neckline to make a Santa coat. Pose Grinch as desired.
