How To Make a Dreidel With Your Printer for the Holidays
Instead of making a dreidel out of clay, make one out of paper!
- You can print out a papercraft dreidel template--Enchanted Learning has a simple one, while Disney's Family Fun Website features a more artistic one--on regular cardstock.
- Alternatively, you can print it out on regular paper and then glue it to thin cardboard (if you don't have cardstock).
- Cut around the edges, fold along the lines, and glue the ends together--simple! Disney's Dreidel includes a papercraft handle for spinning it, while Enchanted Learning's dreidel requires you to stick a straw or a thin wooden dowel through the top.
- Want something a little different this year? Check out Star Wars' R2-D2-themed paper "Droidel." The Droidel is just like the other papercraft dreidels, except that it's designed to resemble R2-D2 from Star Wars; the template includes a little circular top that goes around the handle.
Other fun holiday printer projects include turning photos into calendars, gifts, and greeting cards. And in past years, we've described in detail how to print your own greeting cards, how to make custom photo gifts, and how to design calendars.
