How fun is this? I saw this on a friend's facebook page today and had to try it out! I knew my kids would love it.
All you need is hot dogs* and spaghetti.
Cut up the dogs and get ready to get your old Kerplunk skills out. (Didn't you just hate sticking all those sticks in the game before you could even start? I did!)
McCartney is my tried and true kitchen assistant. She really liked this project. All you do is stick the uncooked spaghetti through a piece of cut up hot dog. We did 5 spaghetti noodles per piece.
Then you make a silly toothless picture to amuse your mother.
Then you have a plate full for really funny looking things.
Dump them in some boiling water for about 10 minutes.
Then you get this!
The kids really wanted to put ketchup on it, but I couldn't handle the thought. They ate them really well without condiments.
*Don't lecture me about the evils of hot dogs. (I mean come on, I bought the nitrate free ones!) I was raised on hot dogs since my grandfather worked the "weiner machine" as he called it as Eckrich when I was little.
