What you need: Several dreidels, about five or six.

How to play: Get the children to sit in a circle. Give one dreidel to a child and sing the song below. The child who is holding the dreidel at the end of the song should spin it or stand up and spin like a dreidel. Give a second child a dreidel and pass two dreidels around while singing the song. Continue until you run out of dreidels.

The rules: The song is sung to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb": "Pass one dreidel round and round. Round and round, round and round. Pass one dreidel round and round. Round the circle." Next verse: "Pass two dreidels ..." and so on until you run out of dreidels.

How to win: This is a just-for-fun game.
