Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of paper!
Here’s another fun way to get the family together this Hanukkah. Play with your plantable dreidels, fill them with gelt, or gift them to friends and family.
Best of all—they give back to our Earth all year long. Simply plant them in the ground and wait for them to sprout. You can create your own flower garden from something homemade.
- Seed paper (find it on Amazon) regular paper works as well if you don’t wish to plant
- Printer (or you can trace it off of your computer)
- Pencils (for dreidel stems)
- Print or trace your dreidel pattern here.
- Cut out your flat dreidel image, poke a hole where the black dot is, and fold where the dotted lines are shown.
- Simply fold in glue tabs and add dabs of glue. Glue your tabs to their neighboring sides and create your 3D dreidel shape.
- Let your dreidels dry once all sides are glued. Then, lightly poke a hole through the top’s center.
- Lightly slide a pencil point down into that hole. This will be your dreidel handle to help it spin.
- Take it a step further and add some color or designs to your crafty dreidel. Have fun playing with the game that gives back!
