Here are a few fun facts from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council:

  • Hot Dogs were first sold at baseball games in 1893.
  • President Franklin D. Roosevelt served hot dogs to King George and Queen Elizabeth. The king ate two.
  • During peak hot dog season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Americans are expected to consume 7 billion hot dogs.
  • On Independence Day, Americans are expected to enjoy 150 million hot dogs, enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times.

Now kids have a little help in drawing one of their favorite foods, the All American Hot Dog. But rather than just guessing at what they remember their last one looking like, they can draw one with detailed mustard, relish and a realistic bun. A step by step tutorial makes it super easy to do.

Materials for a Hot Dog Drawing

  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tips.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.
