How about printing made-up references from the classic poem The Grinch on balloons? You can go with outlandish statements like “Whoville rocks!” “The Grinch Lives Here” or “I’m a Who, How About You?” Kids and adults alike will enjoy reading these fun messages! Alternatively, you can go with fun shapes or characters like candy canes, snowflakes, Santa, or Whoville characters.
