LEGO® Building Instructions – Make Snoopy and his doghouse, and there is even a Woodstock too!
Oh man, this might be our new favorite LEGO® project! The boys have been arguing over who gets to display it in their room, so I solved that conflict by saying that it’s mine. 🙂
Gresham and I were inspired by a photo that we found on Pinterest, but it led to Flickr and there are no instructions, so we made our own. I built the Snoopy and adapted it from the photo. Gresham built the doghouse and the Woodstock.
Snoopy is just resting on top of the dog house, and Woodstock is resting on top of Snoopy’s belly.
Change a few pieces in Snoopy’s body, and he can sit up and type on his LEGO® typewriter! So cute.
Ready to build one? Here’s how to make Snoopy.
Step 1: Start with a 2 x 2 white plate, a 2 x 2 white round plate, a 2 x 2 red round plate, and a 1 x 2 white plate.
Step 2: Stack these pieces as shown.
Step 3: Add two 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side. Then add a 2 x 2 plate and a 1 x 2 plate.
Step 4: Add two 1 x 1 black round plates for the eyes and two more 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side. Then find the bricks shown.
Step 5: Place the two 1 x 2 plates on the top of the head.
Step 6: Then add the 1 x 2 curved slopes. Stack the 2 x 2 white round plate and the 2 x 2 white dome to make the nose. Add the 1 x 1 black round plate.
Step 7: Attach the nose to the face. Add two 1 x 2 black plates for the ears.
Step 8: Find the bricks below for building Snoopy’s body.
Step 9: Attach a 2 x 2 inverted slope and a 1 x 2 brick to the bottom of a 2 x 3 brick.
Step 10: Add two 1 x 2 plates and a 2 x 2 plate.
Step 11: Add the last two bricks to the body. The slope brick is a 2 x 2 x 2/3 modified brick with two studs, curved slope end (bricklink.com name). The LEGO® ID is 47457. Gather six 1 x 1 white round bricks for the arms and legs and two 1 x 2 white plates for the feet.
Step 12: Attach the arms and legs and Snoopy is complete!
It’s easy to change Snoopy to a sitting position! Just remove the 2 x 2 inverted slope and then you’ll need two 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side and two 1 x 1 white round bricks.
Remove the 2 x 2 inverted slope and add the 1 x 1 bricks with a stud on the side.
Then attach the legs. To make the legs work in the sitting position, add a 1 x 1 white round plate to each one. You don’t *have* to add them, but without those Snoopy’s feet will touch his belly.
Build the typewriter! Gather the pieces shown.
Stack the blue plates.
Use 1 x 1 light gray round plates as the typewriter keys. Add a 1 x 2 black plate with one stud on top.
Attach the 1 x 1 black plate with a clip to the 1 x 2 black plate with one stud on top. Then add the 1 x 2 white plate with a handle. The 1 x 1 white round plates will slide onto each end of the handle.
The dog house is easy to figure out. The bottom is four 4 x 4 plates. Then just add bricks and slope bricks for the roof.
Then you just have to figure out where to display it! I have mine on the windowsill over the sink.

You guys are so talented! I am always impressed with your original builds!

I appreciate your posting some ideas and instructions, and your books look really neat. Unfortunately, it seems to be true of your books as much as others I've seen, that a kid with only basic blocks does not actually have the specialty pieces needed. Your title implies we'd already have them, but we have not found this to be true. So disappointing!

Hello! When I wrote the LEGO books, I was confronted with a choice. I could go with really simple building ideas that most kids would have the pieces for (and even then it's not guaranteed as I have no way of knowing what everyone owns), or I could build cool projects with an amount of bricks that most people would have. I have two blog posts with ideas that are made up from only one Classic LEGO set each. I frequently get comments that the projects are too easy/simple/dumb/they could have done better. So I decided to create "book worthy" projects that use a reasonable amount of pieces rather than simplistic looking projects that only use a few pieces. Kids can build the projects in any color or combination of colors, or they can substitute other bricks that they have. Can I ask what your LEGO collection is like? I am confused when you say you only have "basic blocks." Do you mean that you only have basic bricks, such as 2 x 4 bricks, 1 x 4 bricks, etc. No wheels, no bricks that are modified in any way? The reason I'm curious is that LEGO does not sell sets that are only made up of basic bricks. Even the new Classic tubs have a variety of shapes and colors. Most kids who have a decent sized LEGO collection will have a variety of different bricks in a variety of colors. I'm sorry that you were disappointed!

I absolutely Love your projects. I made several.. I am 52 and just adopted 4 boys 2 years ago from our state. This has been such a blessing for me... I find lego building is a great bonding experience to do with my four boys!!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.....

I LOVE all the simple projects too... What I have done is gone on Ebay or the Lego store and bought several of the more popular pieces... I am wearing out the two books I bought of yours... Keep up the FANTASTIC WORK.... :) I personally think the simple ones are the best... I'd like to see more mini animal ideas... I want to make a diarama of a forest/ sea / wilderness / zoo - and mini animals / sea creatures would be great for that. Keep up the FANTASTIC WORK.. Currently making the green dragon from your book... (Took me a while to collect the green pieces, but I finally have everything times 4!!!! ) lol
Now I am on to collecting the items for Snoopy.... I absolutely died when I saw Snoopy and his type writer... oh..my... so so CUTE... Again... thank you... Come out with another book SOON....
