Dreidel Ornament

What You Need:

  • 6 popsicle sticks
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Small paper plate
  • Blue glitter
  • Yarn

What You Do:

  1. Arrange the popsicle sticks in a dreidel shape. An easy way to do this is by making a "house" shape out of them. Start by taking two sticks and putting them together at a point, like a roof. Glue them together.
  2. Then glue two sticks vertically to the bottoms of those sticks, like walls holding up the roof.
  3. Glue one horizontal popsicle stick at the bottom, like a floor. It should look like a house.
  4. Finally, glue the tip of a stick vertically onto the center of the "floor" of the house-shaped sticks. Flip it over, and it should look like the outline of a dreidel! Let the glue dry.
  5. Pour a little glue on a paper plate and dip the paintbrush into it. Brush the surface of the dreidel with the glue, and invite your child to sprinkle the blue glitter over it, making sure to cover the whole thing. Set it aside to dry. After it's dried, you can choose to glitter the other side or leave it empty.
  6. Tie some yarn through the dreidel and hang it in the window! It makes the perfect Hanukkah decoration. This project is also great for families that celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah, because you can hang the beautiful dreidel on your Christmas tree!
