  • your favorite cookie dough recipe
  • round cookie cutter (size according to the pot size)
  • white rolled fondant
  • yellow candy melts
  • sunny side up candies wrapped in small cellophane bag
  • yellow tulle or ribbon

Directions:

  1. Roll out the cookie dough.Using your cookie cutter,cut out a circle and bake according to the recipe directions.
  2. Roll out the fondant-approximately 1/4″.Use the same cookie cutter to cut out a circle from the fondant.You can use a drop of Karo syrup to stick the fondant to the cookie.
  3. Melt approximately 6-7 yellow candy melts in a double boiler,microwave or melting pot.Drop 2-3 teaspoons  on a piece of parchment paper to form the”yolk”. Allow to harden and then stick it onto the fondant with a drop of melted chocolate.

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.)
