The design for these fabulous mobiles comes from Sara Rivka at Creative Jewish Mom.
She sells an electronic “kit” via her Etsy store which I purchased. The kit allows you to print off coloured dreidel shapes onto white paper (allowing you to glue glitter all over the back of the dreidels, for example) or print an outline onto coloured paper, which you can then either leave blank or decorate any way you like. All you need to do then is cut them out and connect them to each other with a little bit of thread.
These are a hit with the whole family, and need hardly any breeze before they spin madly (in fact I took these photos outside and they nearly spun off the line!)
And in case anyone is wondering why I’m still posting about Hanukkah nearly a week after it finished… it’s because Hanukkah is unofficially running at our house until the end of December!
