Hot Dog Fun!

No, this post is not about a dog that got too warm! LOL!  I found this set of 5 Hotdogs in my July 4th tub and thought I'd share with ya'll.  I've used this with a picnic theme and hopefully, the next time I do a camping theme, then too.  Anyway, I can't remember where I found the rhyme (so long ago). I'm sure it's floating around the internet somewhere! I made my own pattern...lost it :(  But you can see that it's very easy and I used yellow slick fabric paint to make the mustard.  My plastic hotdog is really a doggie toy.  What can I say?! I'm easily amused!

5 Little Hotdogs
5 little hotdogs in the frying pan,                   (hold up all your fingers on one hand and wiggle them)
The grease got hot and one went BAM!      (clap loudly)
**repeat verse as you count down -  4 ...    3...      2...       1...      
No little hotdogs in the frying pan,               (hold up fist and shake it)
The pan got hot and it went BAM!              (clap loudly!!)

         The kids really enjoyed this and started to anticipate the BAM!   You could use this if you read/told The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog by Mo Willems.   I also made up a song to the tune of "Bakery Shop".  My intention is to make one of those activities with the clothespins like Mel's at Mel's Desk except with pics of the items from my song on a big hotdog shape...or...a magic envelope activity. I can put in a pic of a hotdog, ketchup, mustard, relish, onion, chili, grated cheese, slaw, hotdog buns and  say the magic words... Deeee-Lish-Us! ♫ Ta Da ♫  I'll pull out a pic of a giant yummy hotdog! Cheers all around!! The more I think about it, the better I like the magic envelope idea  at Rain Makes Applesauce.

Oh, I put my hot dog in a bun.
Now it's time to start my fun.
I added some mustard,
Just a little bit.
Man, this hotdog will be a hit!
Next some ketchup
And if you please,
A spoon of chili and grated cheese.
A little bit of onion
Now don't you see?
Here's a great hot dog that's so yummy!!
