Make Your Own Hot Dog Card
Today is National Hot Dog Day. Try coloring this card with pastels or crayons and use it as a visual aid to explain to your kids that a dachshund is sometimes called a hot dog. Ask them if they know why. Yup, because it’s a similar shape. Can they think of any other things that look like different shapes, such as what can items can they name that look like a circle (moon, pizza, ect.). How about a rectangle? Look around in the classroom and see what they can find. Follow it up, with this silly little frankfurter joke:
Q: What did the Mama Hot Dog say to the little frankfurter?
Make sure you let the kids know that eating hot dogs is no joking matter. They are one of the number one choking hazards for small children. Teach them that they need to chew carefully before swallowing!
