Hanukkah is a cherished time when families gather together to sing songs, eat big dinners and play games. Why not take a traditional game the kids know and love and add a Hanukkah twist? Get out your favorite dreidel and play Chutes and Ladders.

What You Need:

  • Dreidel
  • Paper and pen (to make a set of directions)
  • "Chutes and Ladders" board game

What You Do:

  1. Assign each letter of the dreidel a numerical value. For instance: Nun = back 2 steps, Gimel = move forward 2 steps, Shin = move forward 3 steps, Hay = move forward 4 steps.
  2. Write down these new definitions on a piece of paper and display so everyone can see. Feel free to create your own directions using the dreidel as your “dice.”
  3. Get out the dreidel and spin. Youngest player at the table goes first.
