How to Play Dreidel and a Pretty Cool Printable

We post this last year, but with Chanukah less than a week away I thought we should share it again.  

Until about 10 years ago I didn’t even realize there were rules to the Dreidel game.  I thought it was just a top with Hebrew symbols on it.  Yes, I am slightly embarrassed to admit that, but now I know better!  It’s actually a lot of fun no matter what age you are.  

We may get a bit competitive in this house when it comes to the Dreidel.  We each have our preferred dreidel.  I like the smaller wood one, Ellie the large plastic ones and my husband like the medium sized wood ones.  Every one has their secret spin tip too, but we’re not willing to share those. 😉 

So how do you play?  Simple! 

The dreidel game

Tomorrow is Ellie’s holiday party at school and we’ve made 32 Dreidel game kits. Each kit includes one small wooden dreidel, a packet of gelt and an instruction sheet.

You can pick up the small dreidels and gelt at any party store.  Each dreidel was 35 cents and the gelt was 59 cents for a small bag. Below we’ve created a printable.  Just print, cut, and stuff each bag with one of each.

Have fun and Happy Chanukah.
