Make Finger Cymbals from Recycled Materials
Let kids have fun and make some noise with their own finger cymbals made from baby food jar caps. This craft teaches kids to recycle and use all kinds of discarded materials for craft supplies.

Cut two 1-7/8" circles out of foam. Glue them to the inside of the baby food jar caps.
