Building Snoopy’s Doghouse

DSC00517

While watching A Charlie Brown Christmas last month, Mr. Jingles was hit with inspiration.  Apparently the one thing our Christmas decorations are missing is a life-size Snoopy doghouse.  So, using scrap wood left over from Halloween, he set out to build one.  As you can see, it is still in the early stages.  As they say, anything you don’t finish for this year is an early start on next year.

The idea is to paint one side blue so we can decorate it for Christmas, matching the way it looked in the movie.  Then, we can paint the other side red to use it for other holidays.  Now we have something to match our collection of Peanuts holiday flags!  Stay tuned for more updates on this latest project.

Marshmallow Snowmen

DSC00468

Cabin fever has set in at the Jingles house.  With the unseasonably cold weather we have been experiencing, we have been forced to stay inside much more than usual.  The little Jingles have needed extra activities to keep them entertained.

One of the activities Mr. Jingles came up with was making marshmallow snowmen.  It’s really simple, only takes a few items to make it happen, and if you mess up, you can always eat the evidence!

Just get some large marshmallows, toothpicks, and and cake decorating icing.  The icing we found came in small tubes that were easy to draw with.  Then, let your creativity run wild.

As you can see, Mr. Jingles himself took his inspiration from our Charlie Brown and Lucy salt and pepper shakers.  As you know, Charlie Brown is a “perfect model.”
