Green Grinchy Canes – UPDATED!!

Check out our Green Grinchy Canes! Your kid will love these! I recently bought a box of Spangler candy canes in watermelon flavor that are just perfect for this project. Not only will your kids get a kick out of these, I think they would be really cute to give out as party favors at holiday parties. I’ve had all kinds of interesting Christmas Gift ideas lately. There’s no doubt, kids of all ages will enjoy getting these cute Grinch inspired candy cane crafts.

You can make your own tags to attach to the candy canes or download our pre-made templates below.

What you need:

Green Candy Canes
Grinch Poem Tag
Curling ribbon
Hole Puncher

Print out the Grinch tags on card stock and cut them out. Punch a hole near the upper left corner of each one. Cut curling ribbon into 10 or so inch lengths. Thread the curling ribbon through the hole in tie to the bend of the candy cane. Then use the scissors to curl the ribbon by dragging the edge of the blades along the ribbon really fast.

If you’re going to make your own tags to attach to the candy canes use the following poem. Simply attach the poem to the green candy cane with the curling ribbon.

When the Grinch discovered
There was no way,
To Keep Christmas from coming
On Christmas day,
He devised a new plan…

Though not quite as mean.
He licked all the candy canes,
‘Til he turned them all green.

Our Grinchy tags are formatted to fit Avery business cards, use template #5371.


  1. Love this. My 42 yr. old son says he’s the “Grinch” so each year we try to find something new for him. Being raised by a mother that loves Christmas and Santa, not sure how he can say that. Never too early to buy a Santa and we try to buy an ornament when we travel. Tree, each room have Santas in them, think I counted over 700 the last time I counted but now I have downsized SOME, not much but SOME.

    • I understand completely! My 15 year old daughter is a Grinch as well… truly amazing considering her mothers obsession with Christmas.

      WOW! 700 Santa’s! That’s quite a collection. Downsizing is hard, probabally easier to just build another room to house them all!

      Here are some on Amazon, the only green ones I can find online:

  4. Thank you so much for this!!! My students will love it. I am in Canada and found green and white candy sticks at Party City. I will just say the Grinch is so mean he broke the candy canes, too!

  5. I am the grinch around Christmas time, right up until christmas day. I love love love this movie, and I am definitely doing these for my co workers.

  6. Hi- I have been trying all morning to print out the “free” grinch candy cane tags. I have an iPad and iPhone how can I do this with these devices? I tried to do it on my phone and it says “safari can’t download this”. I’d really love to print these out for my daughters 2nd grade class. Please tell me how to do it. Thanks!
