Have some fun with dreidel shapes!
I was playing around with ideas for a new Chanukah project and cut out a bunch of different sized dreidels. I was trying different arrangements on the page when I realized that there were so many different ways to combine the shapes and create unique patterns and designs. I gave the shapes to my kids who started moving pieces around and coming up with designs of their own.
The fun in this project is more in the play than the final product! We used 4 large, 4 medium and 4 small dreidels and I suggest using at least this amount. More will only increase the possibilities! Use different colors or make each size it’s own color. Try using tinfoil instead of paper for a shiny effect! Placing them on a dark background will give a dramatic effect as well. Cutting the shapes out of Chanukah wrapping paper can be fun idea too. Start playing – see what you can come up with!
