I created these dreidel boxes for our family Chanukah party last year, and am thrilled to share them with you as a free printable! You can find more Hanukkah crafts and printables here! Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.
When it comes to prepping for our family Chanukah party, I can really go all-out. Since it’s not one of those hectic chagim like Rosh Hashanah or Sukkos, there aren’t that many other obligations, I can do any and all prep the day of… so putting together extras like these dreidel boxes can be lots of fun.
Whether you’re doing this for the kids at a bigger family party, or just using it as a gift box/treat for your own children, it’s sure to be a big hit! They are perfect for filling with chocolate coins, plastic dreidels, or other prizes and treats.

The easiest thing to use for the stem is a paper straw – that way, you can cut a few slits in the end, fold it out, and tape it flat to the cover. Alternatively, you can hot glue a toothpick in place, or even a short dowel.
I wanted a traditional but artsy feel on these free printable dreidel boxes, so I created some fun doodles with gel pen (yep, those things you used to play with when you were a tween – they’re great for grown-ups too!!) I scanned them and turned them into a fun Chanukah printable for you.

What you need to assemble your dreidel boxes:
- Print the box on card stock – you’ll want it to be stiff enough to hold its form
- Paper Straw (recommended)
- Scoring tool (or the blunt side of a utility knife works great too)
- Hole punch (or use a utility/craft knife to make the hole)
- Strong glue stick or glue lines
How to assemble your dreidel boxes:
- Cut out your box on the outline. Where two tabs are connected on one side, make sure you separate them too.
- Score all the remaining lines using a ruler to keep you straight. Fold along the score lines.
- Punch a hole for your straw in the spot marked with a dot.
- Cut paper straws to your desired length. Cut a few slits in the bottom and bend them outward.
- Slide the straw into the hole you created for it, from the inside out. Tape it in place inside your box’s lid.
- Use glue lines or or a glue stick to assemble your dreidel box, keeping the lid open.
- Fill it with treats, close the lid, and enjoy!
