A Dirt Cheap DIY Toy Made by Expired Credit Cards

Whenever I have a new wallet, I could always find some unwanted plastic cards – expired credit cards or membership cards. Instead of throwing them away, I made it a toy for my son. It took only three minutes and $0 to make it.

See how it works.

The material we need:

The taped joint can be bent in two ways – the rubber band is stretched or the rubber band is relax.

Bend the joint with the rubber band stretched and put it on the floor.

It jumps.
