Inspired by Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and developed by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan with the permission of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop opens Nov. 22, 2014 and runs through Jan. 4, 2015.
“Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a beloved holiday classic children and their families enjoy together year after year,” said Tammie Kahn, the Children’s Museum of Houston’s Executive Director. “The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop will bring that story and characters of Who-ville to life.”
To step into The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop is to walk into the pages of Dr. Seuss’ classic holiday tale. Gallery walls, wrapped in scenes from Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! pop with Who-holiday spirit. See Cindy-Lou Who at the Who-ville holiday feast, where the transformed Grinch carves the “roast beast.” At the center of it all is old “Grinch Claus” and his oversized, interactive sleigh tethered to his unwitting “Rein-Dog,” Max. Hop in and steer Max all the way to Who-ville! Activity areas buzz with laughter and creative energy as you take part in Grinch-related holiday programming.
The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop will host daily and weekly programming. Look for clues in The Workshop to answer scavenger hunt questions; dive into fun, two-sided Grinch masks; get the Grinch stuck down a chimney with the “Grinch in a Pinch” tree ornaments; create your own Who-ville character to add to a community mural and invite everyone out for a Who-Ville feast; create Grinch finger puppets to convey this holiday classic in a puppet theatre; and gather around for storytelling with the Children’s Museum of Houston staff and special guests who will read How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Special appearances will be made by the Grinch himself. Bring your camera!
“We’d like to invite Houston families to celebrate the holidays among the most cherished children’s author of all time,” said Kahn. “Celebrate creativity, spark a lifelong love of reading and have yourself a merry, little Grinchmas!”
