3 Little Hot Dogs

3 Little Hot Dogs is one of my favorites for this age, and years ago, I incorporated rubbing the floor in a circular motion into the song. For many three-year-olds, this motion is somehow inherently satisfying, especially when done on a rug.

3 little hot dogs frying in a pan
The grease got . . . hot-hot-hot-hot-hot, rub fast!
hot-hot-hot-hot-hot,                            rub fast!
hot-hot-hot-hot-hot,                            and again!
and one went BAM!                            clap overhead

Of course we go through 2, 1 and 0 hot dogs, until finally, “the pan went BAM!”
