A couple of weeks ago I noted Joanna Brichetto's search for the perfect LEGO dreidel. She came to a final decision, which she then used as part of a Hanukkah carnival at her synagogue. Kids were able to build their own LEGO dreidel and take it home with them.
If you want to build your own, either for yourself or for an event for kids in your area, she's made up a set of instructions and rules for the dreidel game that you can print up and use.
She was even kind enough to send me my very own Joanna Brichetto original LEGO dreidel, which is sitting proudly on my desk as I write this. I'm happy to report that it spins really well, also. Thanks, Joanna!
