Tissue Paper Dreidel Craft


This Tissue Paper Dreidel was created by the FreeKidsCrafts Team to help you celebrate Hanukkah. It is also a great project to make while teaching other cultures about Hanukkah and the Jewish customs associated with it.


At Hanukkah, kids play with dreidels, which are small spinning tops. Tradition says that before the Maccabees revolted, Jews weren’t legally allowed to read the Torah, so they would study the holy text while pretending to gamble with spinning dreidels.
