Crazy Nights: #3 and #4
the weather outside was frightful
but the Latkes were so delightful.
dreidel, dreidel, dreidel…
i made you out of clay.
and when you’re dry and ready…
then dreidel I shall play.

We had a big Hanukkah bash last night with lots of crafting, dreidel spinning and fun. & 3 birthdays to celebrate, too. It was a memorable night.
The above picture medley includes gelt bags inspired here. Thanks Martha.
& Dough ornaments using this recipe:
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups water.
Shape your ornaments, bake at 350degrees for about an hour, allow to cool then paint! (don’t forget to put a hole for hanging)

Simple fig newton/pretzel stick recipes & our local weather. Off to prepare for night #5…

    Love the fig newton dreidel! So cute! Thanks for linking that recipe. I might make some tomorrow night to talk about Hanukkah with our kids. I never knew anyone who celebrated Jewish holidays when I was growing up and therefore know very little about most of them. Elizabeth's bff is half-Jewish and celebrates Hanukkah so she's been asking if we could too. 😉
