I make these dreidel crafts every year. This year we used an old cereal box. I cut the box into small dreidels and the kids decorate them as they see fit.
I suggest doing this with a menorah because all the straight lines make it sort of idiot-proof. Take tape (preferably painter’s tape but other tape is fine as well) and put it in the shape of a menorah on the paper.
If you are really good at these type of things, try to do it a few years in a row so you can see their adorable little hands grow! Don’t forget to write their name and year on the back of the paper so that you don’t forget which year each handprint was from.
The great thing is that you can make it more or less fancy-depending on how much time and energy you have. You can really use any material to decorate the rolls.
I love using household goods to make crafts! It excited the frugal me. Even if you don’t have paper plates around they are super cheap to buy and better than plastic for the environment so a lot of wins!
You can use leftover papers or magazines if you want something really super frugal. You do need a nice blank wall for this to work though. If you live in most places, the paper won’t stick to a window if it’s cold and rainy.
