Slit a hot dog from the ends toward the middle, leaving a space in the center that is not slit, then repeat the procedure. You are actually cutting the ends into fourths. When you cook it, it will draw up like an octopus with the slit parts making the 8 legs.

Graham Cracker Aquariums

Need: graham cracker squares (1 per child), peanut butter, celery, cheerios, Goldfish Crackers, waxed paper, knife or spoon to spread the peanut butter, sharp knife (for adult use only) 

Give each child a square of waxed paper to work on. Next, give each child a graham cracker square, about a tablespoon of peanut butter. Have the kids spread the peanut butter all over one side of the cracker.  While they are doing this, have an adult use a sharp knife to cut the celery into about 3 in. lengths. Now, slice the celery long ways into very thin 3 in. pieces. This will be used for seaweed in the aquarium. After the kids have finished spreading the P.B. give each of them about 1/4c. of cheerios. Have them crumble several cheerios and press the crumbles along the bottom of the cracker square so that they stick in the P.B. This will make the sand. Now give each child about 10 goldfish crackers. Have the children stick the goldfish on their sides into the P.B. on the cracker. Add some extra P.B. to the goldfish if needed to make them stick. Now, take a few cheerios and stick them onto the P.B. above the goldfish to make air bubbles. Next give each child several thin sticks of celery to stick onto their aquarium to make seaweed. Eat some ocean!

Using a new clean glass aquarium for your dish, mix and prepare enough blue- colored jello to fill the bowl at least 3/4 full. When partially set, you can mix in or arrange, some new clean aquarium plastic plants or other safe decor (the jello is intended for eating so be sure anything you mix in is compatible and SAFE for having in food!), and some different shapes of gummy fish …When you are inserting and mixing in these things, it slightly unsettles the jello and looks even more realistic.

In a Dixie cup, pour juice (orange, apple, fruit punch, etc.), put in a craft stick. Put in gummy worms hanging over the edge to look like legs.  Place in the freezer. When the pop is taken out of the cup it looks like an octopus on a stick.

Need: Hot Dogs, Hamburger Buns   

Cut a hot dog down the middle (length wise) to the center.  Then cut each of the “legs” into 4 pieces.  That makes 8 floppy legs coming out of the top half of the hot dog.  When you boil them the legs curl up. Put it on a hamburger bun bottom and that’s it! (Be careful with hot dogs are a chocking hazard)
