Make an Eco-Friendly Dreidel

Make an Eco-Friendly Dreidel

This Hanukkah, make this eco-friendly dreidel–a resourceful alternative to using a plastic or rubber dreidel!

* Print out the dreidel pattern.

* Glue the pattern to lightweight cardboard and cut it out. Carefully cut out the little holes at the top and the bottom of the dreidel.

* Fold the pattern into a box shape and glue the flaps in place on the inside of the dreidel. Let the glue dry.

* Push the pencil or dowel through the holes so that the point comes through the bottom. Secure with a little glue if necessary.

* Play the dreidel game!
