Madhouse diaries : The Snowman Game !


So what did you get up to on New Year's Eve? I bet you didn't do the same as us. We turned Madhouse Grandad into a snowman by wrapping him up in toilet roll !


I blame it on the #NickJrCraftmas twitter party because they provided four toilet rolls in their party pack and gave us the idea. Madhouse Grandad provided the willing victim !


I've never seen Pierre get so excited - he giggled with glee as he wrapped his roll round and round his grandad !


Once he was totally covered, we added buttons and a suitably ridiculous hat and scarf just to finish off the look !


It made me laugh when I saw what the advert on TV was when I took this photo - talk about coincidence ! It made me laugh even more when I had a good look at Madhouse Grandad - poor bloke !


Once he'd escaped, the kids wanted to have a go. We reused the unrolled paper on Juliette.


While Sophie took over mummifying Pierre !


Two very smiley snowmen.


Total bedlam ensued as Juliette broke free of her toilet roll bonds and they had a toilet-roll snowball fight ! It certainly perked them up and helped them keep awake right through until midnight anyway !
