Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees .
2. Cut hot dogs in half lengthwise to avoid choking hazard, and in half
widthwise to fit into the biscuits.

their fine motor skills to roll a layer of biscuit around their hot dog.
4. Place the rolled hot dogs on the cookie sheet. Place in the oven for
approximately 15 minutes.

More to do Gross Motor: As a gross motor activity, let each child have a turn rolling up in a
blanket (like the hot dog), and then unroll. This is a good motor and sensory
activity.
