Would you like to win a LEGO dreidel kit? Ideally, you’ve all got enough parts at home to make a whole battalion of unique, custom dreidel models, but in case you don’t, take some of mine. The more LEGO dreidels in the world, the better.
My little kit includes parts to make the model above. The colors and bricks will vary, but the dreidel will the same shape. I’m including four Avery stickers so your kid can add the appropriate letters, but he or she may use a Sharpie (if allowed) and write directly on the bricks. (Rubbing alcohol removes Sharpie goofups from LEGO plastic.) That’s it. No frills. Simple. Just for fun.
After countless hours of (fun) testing, this design was one of the best in terms of least number of parts required and least amount of finesse to spin. The “boat stud” as contact point makes a smoooooth and long-lasting spin.
Here’s a parts list in case you want to go ahead and make your own right this minute:
- 2 4×4 bricks
- 1 4×4 plate
- 1 2×2 plate (square or round)
- 1 2×2 brick
- 1 1×1 round brick (cylinder)
- 1 2×2 rounded plate “boat stud” (or substitute one 1×1 round plate / pip)
You can eyeball the photo and put it together, right? Let me know if you want instructions.
To Enter: Just leave a comment here or at the Bible Belt Balabusta Facebook Page and I’ll select two (random) winners by noon, CST on Wednesday, November 28, 2012. I’ll contact the winners for mailing info that day, and if I don’t hear back from you within say, three days, I’ll select a runner-up. (U.S. address only, please, because I’m trying to keep things simple.)
