A dreidel spinning top template, ideal to use during your Hanukkah celebrations. The four sides of the dreidel feature letters of the Hebrew alphabet: נ (Nun), ג (Gimel), ה (Hei) and ש (Shin). Together they form the acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham which translates as "a great miracle happened there" (referring to the land of Israel). Dreidels are used during Hanukkah in a fun game involving a pot of gelt.
To use this template:
- Print the pdf on to card (or print on paper and stick the page to cardboard). - Cut out and glue the flaps into place. - Push a stick or pencil through the circle to complete the spinner.
The pdf contains a black and white and colour version of the dreidel.
