The Grinch has a dark presence in our popular Halloween traditions. He appears on Halloween cards, posters, and on-street signs throughout the United States. He is depicted as a skeleton with a wide-open red mouth holding a large crumbly biscuit. The Grinch’s appearance represents the holiday tradition of trick or treating – and for many families this Halloween, they want to make their own Grinch yard decoration. There are several ideas that families can incorporate into their own ‘trick or treating’ themed yard decoration.
Grinch Yard Decoration
One idea is to purchase a large red and yellow broom with a handle. The handle could be used as a club or perhaps a broom for cleaning the gutters. One could find plastic brooms in broomsticks that have handles. Place these plastic broomsticks in the front and back entrances to your neighborhood. If you have trees in your neighborhood, these would be great areas to hang the red and yellow broomsticks.
Another idea is to make a sign. You can buy vinyl cards that say, ‘trick or treat.’ You could also use this sign as a yard decoration. Cut out black construction paper to fit the width of the sidewalk on your home. Cut along the line of your sidewalk to form a ‘Mall’ type of sign. You can use this sign anywhere in your neighborhood that children are allowed to walk, and it will be an easy way to remind children that they need to keep their hands and feet clean after Halloween.

If you do not want to put the sign in the street, you can hang it on your door. It will be a unique decoration that will capture the attention of your neighbors. It is always great when you can join in on the festivities of your neighbors. Your children will be the only ones that will see this door, and the Grinch will be gone for good.

There are many other ideas that you can use to decorate your lawn and sidewalks. Use an orange bucket to catch any fallen leaves that fall. Turn the lawn into an impromptu play area by putting out small tables and chairs. Get a few balloons, streamers, and banners and tie them to light fixtures on your lawn. Make sure that there are plenty of children running around playing so that no one gets hurt.
The best part of the whole thing is to wait until Halloween comes and then gather all the decorations. That will be a great way for your neighborhood to reflect and celebrate the tradition of Halloween. Once the sun goes down, the neighborhood will have an eerie and fun atmosphere that is not common on any other day of the year. The Grinch will not be able to sleep at night, knowing that his ghost is trapped inside. It may be difficult to remove once it is in place. Just make sure you take a few precautions to protect yourself and any visitors that night.
