One of Eva's favorite Hanukkah book is Sammy Spider's First Hanukkah by Sylvia A. Rouss in which Sammy watches little Josh Shapiro get a new dreidel each night of Hanukkah and longs for a dreidel of his own to spin. Today we tried spinning our own dreidels. The actual "rules" for playing dreidel were a bit over Eva's head so we just spun them and played with the gelt (aka chocolate coins). Eva had a blast!
(And yes, we have already broken in the Christmas jammies!)
