Celebration on a Bun

The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog!, by Mo Willems, is a book that is sure to be read over and over again! The pigeon in the story is very excited to find a hot dog to eat all by himself, when a little duck shows up to spoil his treat. The little duck just wants some of the hot dog too, so in the end they both enjoy it together. Celebration on a Bun is a twist on eating a hot dog that will become a new favorite for sure! While your hot dogs are cooking, you can make some picture puzzles for fun. Just like the birds in the book cut their hot dog in half, cut some pictures in half to make puzzles. 

Celebration on a Bun

Serves 8

1 package of 8 vegan hot dogs 

8 hot dog buns or hoagie rolls

2 avocados

2 cloves of garlic minced

1 teaspoon salt

Juice from 1 lime

2 tomatoes diced

Vegan Mayonnaise (optional)

On an outdoor grill or in a skillet on the stove top, cook your hot dogs until done. Slice the avocados in half, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh into a small mixing bowl. With a fork, mash up the avocado with the juice of a lime, minced garlic and salt. To serve, place the hot dogs on a roll and add the avocado, diced tomatoes and touch of mayonnaise. 

Picture Puzzles

You will need:

Magazines or junk mail (okay to cut up)



Construction paper

Find pictures from a magazine and glue them onto a piece of construction paper. When the glue has dried, cut the picture in half, making a wavy or zig-zagged edge that will make it easy to match the two halves together. Do this with a few pictures and when they are finished you can scramble them all up and put the pictures back together again!
