Magic Dreidel

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.

Magic Dreidel Song (Tune is a variation of “Little Red Wagon”)

Jump inside the magic Dreidel, Jump inside the magic Dreidel, Jump inside the magic Dreidel, Jump jump jump jump Jump, jump.

Actions can be changed to hop, shake, tap, clap, spin, bow, run, smile, sit….

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.

Hanukkah’s A Happy Time Sung to Mary Had A Little Lamb

Hanukkah’s a happy time,

The festival of lights.
