Get ready for Hanukkah with a scavenger hunt for acorns so you can create these adorable Acorn Dreidels. Start collecting acorns from your yard now. The more acorns the better. You will only need the shell so leave the nuts for the squirrels.

There are just a few quick steps to assemble your Acorn Dreidels then you can let the fun begin. Go ahead…sing and spin. The last one to fall wins! Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel, I made it out of clay (and acorns) and when it’s dry and ready oh Dreidel I will play.
