Make meal time that much more amusing for children thanks to these cute hot dog designs that transform the popular comfort food into tiny edible animals. These would be great to make at home to help stubborn eaters polish their plates.

These little hot dog animals are simple and quick to make. Food blogger She Knows teaches parents how to slice up hot dogs to so that they look like miniature elephants, penguins and snails. To make the elephant hot dog slice the hot dog meat so that you have two circular slices that will replicate the large ears and an added incision for the elephant's long nose. Then you can add cream cheese and a small piece of seaweed as eyes. These hot dog animals would be great to add to a bowl of rice.
