advent activities – handmade dreidels

When the we began our advent activities for the Season, I wrote my friend Tali and asked her for some suggested activities she and her kiddos enjoy together during this beautiful Season.  I read through her matzo ball soup blog and found several Chanukah traditions our family would enjoy doing together. 

The first we attempted was making our own dreidels.  Tali suggests following Martha’s tutorial.  We used old catalog paper, though I wonder if the grit on the construction paper would have been better.  Despite our imperfect technique, they really do spin!  🙂

One of our favorite Children’s books about Chanukah:

It’s a Miracle! A Hankkah Storybook by Stephanie Spinner

It's a Miracle!: A Hanukkah Storybook

All about Hanukkah traditions, family memories, and celebration.  This is a great introduction to Hanukkah traditions.
