Hanukkah Songs For Preschoolers
Using masking tape create the outline of a Dreidel on the floor. This is the “magic Dreidel.” Invite the children to step inside the “magic Dreidel.” Once inside sing the song that follows. Children can stand inside the Dreidel individually or in groups. Either the teacher can pick the activity done inside the Dreidel or the children can.

I Am A Blue Dreidel (Act out with children) Sung to I’m A Little Teapot
I am a blue dreidel wound up tight!
I whirl and whirl with all my might!
And now the whirls are out of me.
So I’ll rest quietly as can be!
Spin The Dreidel Sung to Row ,Row ,Row ,Your Boat
Spin, spin, spin the dreidel
Spin it round and round
Wait to see what letter comes up
And the prize which you have found.
