CD Spinning

I got this idea from a craft my friend's children did at a library activity day.  A really cool CD Top.
Here's what you need:
A plastic pop bottle cap
A marble
Hot Glue
Elmer's glue

Step 1: Trace the CD on to the paper and let your child wildly color the template you have just made.

Step 2: Cut out the paper CD and glue it to the top of the real CD.  Make sure the center hole lines up.

Step 3: Hot glue the marble to the center of the underside of the CD.

Step 4: Hot glue the bottle cap to the center of the top side of the CD.

Step 5: Be amazed at how long these babies spin for.

these are awesome! another fun thing is to let your human kids use pot lids. have them put different objects on them to see what centrifugal force can do! yep, it's a mess but a fun one.

This is great Sarah! I was (eventually) going to do a search on crafts to do with CD's. I have a stack of about 10 that didn't burn properly. Thanks for all the fun ideas!
