Construct-a-Dreidel

Nun-Gimmel-Hey-Shin-

You’ll be amazed how this dreidel can spin!

Though not the toy for a game of Dreidel to compete-

You’ll have a blast making it, and it’s fun to eat!

Supplies

10 Gum Drops, Dots, or Licorice Nibs

21 Toothpicks

Directions

Construct two squares, using four candies and four toothpicks for each square.

Attach the two squares with four additional toothpicks to form a cube.

To construct top of dreidel, break four toothpicks down to ¾ of its original size, and form an “X” with a gumdrop at its center, then stick toothpick for spinning in the center and attach to the cube.

To create bottom of Dreidel , stick toothpicks into all four bottom gumdrops on an angle. Stick the opposite end all four toothpicks in a single gumdrop, creating a triangle.

(Tip:  To make this activity challenging, distribute the 21 toothpicks and 10 gumdrops to each of the children (or adults), and see who can figure this Dreidel out without reading the directions.)

Have Fun!!
