“I make this for my picky boys! It costs roughly $1 to make if that so is very cheap to keep on hand! This is SO easy your kids can help make their own lunch/snack!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 hot dog, cooked
  • 1 (3 ounce) package Top Ramen noodles (cooked and drained no sauce added)
  • food coloring (your choice)
  • mustard or ketchup


  1. After draining Top Ramen noodles let kid/s pick out food color/colors.
  2. If you want the octopus to look like its really on the sea use blue only.
  3. Put a few drops on the noodles.
  4. Toss with forks until coated evenly.
  5. This does not color them completely-- more like a sprinkling/marbling effect.
  6. Make an X cut (crisscross) from top of wiener to the middle.
  7. Arrange on top of noodles to make an octopus with 4 legs.
  8. Make a smile and 2 eyes with ketchup or mustard and you're set!
