The Illusion Top, a fun desk top toy you can make out of several simple parts. 
All you need is:
2 metal washers the size of a fifty cent piece
1 Screw, a little larger than the length of the washer, with a round tip
1 bolt that screw all the way to the head of the screw
1 water bottle lid
Duct tape 
a drill or something to poke a hole through the water bottle lid

Step 1: Step 1

Drill or poke a hole through water bottle cap the size of the screw.  I recommend using a water bottle lid from Walmart's bottle, its made out of a softer plastic.

Step 2:

Push lid onto screw until it reaches the rounded head. Don't worry about the square at the head of the screw it will be covered in the following steps. 

Step 3:

Stack washer on top of the lid. 

Step 4: Step 4

Tighten bolt until lid completely covers the square at the head of the screw. 

Step 5: Step 5

Wrap duct tape around the screw down to the bolt. 

Step 6: Play!!!

Spin and play.
