How easy and fun is it!  Check out the step by step pictures and directions!

1st- Fold a piece of 9X12 green construction paper in half...hot dog fold!

2nd-Fold it again...hot dog style.

3rd-Open...it should now be folded in half with folded edge pointed towards belly.  The open edge is away from the body and there is a folded line running horizontally across the paper.
