The Chanukah Countdown continues here all week! (Keep reading for today's Giveaway!)
I'm sure you know the Dreidel song. The one about making the dreidel out of clay. Who makes a dreidel out of clay today? The ones we play with are all wood or plastic or something like that. What I like to do is solicit additional materials (paper, ice cream, chocolate, snow) and sing the song, "re-writing" the words as I go along. This is, especially in front of an older audience, a tricky test of your rhyming skills...
I have a little dreidel, I made it out of paper. I folded it right up and put it away for later.
(it's not perfect. but sing it and you'll see...)
I have a little dreidel, I made it out of snow. I looked for it in the summer, where oh where did it go?
So what are some other things you'd like to make your dreidel out of? Share your verses in the comments!
If you can't wait, how about a Virtual Dreidel Game?
and the Giveaway....
Have you heard of No Limit Texas Dreidel?
Yes, that's right, the game of Dreidel has gotten a face-lift. Now there's a new game in town.
From the ModernTribe website:
Unless you're under the age of five or have an obsession with things that spin, the traditional version of the dreidel game is endearing - but let's face it - the game is mind numbing after a few minutes. In fact, whenever we were ready to end our Hanukkah party we found the subtlest way to clear a guest-filled house was to play a round of dreidel.
And, just because it's really funny, I thought I'd share with you my favorite question and answer from their FAQ:
Q: Can you bet the empty gelt foil?
A: This question comes up from time-to-time, usually by people who've indulged in their winnings before the end of the game. They want to know if the empty foil: sans chocolate, has any betting value. Our answer is definitively: No.
While you're over at ModernTribe, check out all the cool stuff in their Chanukah Shop. (Including this peace sign menorah, which is clearly priceless! Make sure you look at the price...) And they're home of these really cool t-shirts.
The folks at ModernTribe have generously given me one No Limit Texas Dreidel set to give away to one of you, my beloved readers. How cool is that?
How can you share the joy of No Limit Texas Dreidel with your friends and family?
