The Grinch

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, 
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. 
It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. 
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. 
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. 
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. 
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

Most of these parts stayed on just by moisture. I used the kiwi skin for the eyebrows, dried apricots for the yes, a cut sesame seed for the nose, strawberry and vegan/food dye free Dandies Classic Vanilla Flavor Air Puffed Marshmallows 10oz for the hat. The marshmallows didn't want to stay on, so my daughter and I sewed them together with a needle and thread, and tied it around the hat.
