Bottle Cap Tambourine (marthastewart.com)
For the tambourine , use a hammer to flatten twenty metal bottle caps from old-fashioned sodas (all-metal ones without plastic liners work best). For the fullest sound, make some of them flatter than others.
An adult should hammer a nail hole in the middle of each cap. Glue two stiff paper plates together with their bottoms facing; let dry. Punch six pairs of holes around the rims of the plates. Through five pairs of holes, thread four inches of waxed twine or yarn, positioning pairs and trios of bottle caps between and outside the plates to make little stacks of jingles, and tie. Tie ribbon streamers through the last hole.
