Read on to learn how to make this preschool art project.

Materials You’ll Need

  • Card stock paper (choose at least two colors)
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Markers or crayons
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard

How-To Steps

  1. Cut the cardboard into three pieces — a square, a triangle and a small rectangle. If your child can’t cute through the board, you can do this step for them. They’ll use the three pieces as a template to puzzle together the dreidel shape.
  2. Place the cardboard shapes onto a piece of card stock. Your child can build a dreidel shape and trace it.
  3. Cut the dreidel out
  4. Repeat to make more dreidels in different colors.
  5. Ask your child to arrange the dreidels on a plain piece of card stock (or you can use a piece of poster board paper) in an alternating color pattern.
  6. Glue the dreidels onto the paper.

You can also use the dreidels to make a paper garland. Punch holes on the side and string the shapes together with yarn or thin ribbon
