Do you ever have hot dog sausages but no buns? This happens to me often because the buns expire quickly whereas the hot dogs don't, so I tend to buy more hot dogs than buns. B hates this - he expects a hot dog to be in a hot dog bun and struggles with anything else... Until now, that is!
I unleashed my latest weapon in my battle to get B to eat a full dinner. B's favorite show? Octonauts! Enter the Octodog!
1. Put your water on to boil. While that water is heating, set to work cutting the hot dog.
2. Make a lengthwise cut to the halfway mark.Turn hot dog 90 degrees. Make a second lengthwise cut to the halfway mark.
5. Grab your food-safe pens and draw eyes on your octodog (or hand the pens to the kids, if you like).
For Australian residents, this would also work with Cheerios, although the Octopus would be smaller... oh how I miss Cheerios... my kids think Cheerios are cereal!
