Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel, I made you out of paper...

In light of the fact that there are only

you might want to consider making your own dreidel! It's a fun kids' project, too!
Try this pattern, which is basically a cube with holes for a sharpened pencil to poke through and be both handle and point.
Or try this one, which is a bit more traditionally shaped, with a nice point. An enlarged version could be a nice gift box, too.
You didn't really see this. Just move along. (Droidel, Droidel, Droidel?)

I've envisioned an edible dreidel made with a large marshmallow, a mini pretzel stick for the handle, and a Hershey's Kiss on the bottom for a point. You can create the letters in frosting on the sides, or perhaps use segments of graham crackers for the 4 sides.
