How to Draw…a Dreidel

Pin It

As we approach the end of Hanukkah, take a few minutes to learn to draw a dreidel. The dreidel is a Jewish variant on the teetotum, a gambling toy found in many European cultures. Each side of the dreidel bears a letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which together form the acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham – “a great miracle happened there.” The kids will love learning how to draw this three-dimensional shape and finding out more about what it means.
