Poem for the Gift Tag on Grinch Dust
We have included a pdf that has 10 gift tags per page. Each gift tag has this poem on it.
Don't let the Grinch Steal Christmas.
You best be on your guard!
Don't go to bed on Christmas Eve
Until you've sprinkled Grinch Dust in your yard.
The Grinch will see this magic dust,
And he'll know you've taken care,
To protect your home and family,
And to keep Christmas magic in the air!
