Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of…uhh…paper.

12 Dec

Chanukah is officially over halfway over, which means that I really need to start maximizing my dreidel-playing time. There is a lot of unclaimed gelt in our house, and that simply will not stand. To my dismay, however, I found our house completely bereft of dreidels. To help us deal with our little “problem”, I put together a little papercraft dreidel:

Gelt (sadly) not included.

(Click on it to see the full-sized image.) I know I said I’d stick to the same palette all week, but I left this blank so that you can color it in however you want. I recommend printing it on cardstock or some other sort of thick paper so that it stands up to being spun. It’ll look something like this when you’re done:

This is my best Vanna White impression.

That’s the prototype dreidel in the above picture, so the letters are all hand-drawn and, as such, a bit messier. With the template above, everything should be nice and neat. If you make one, please let me know–or, even better, post a picture! I’d love to see how yours turn out.
