To make mine, I used 3" wood circles that I found at Michael's.  I chose large circles since K still likes to put shove small objects completely into his mouth.  I cut out music shapes out of cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo, but you could either paint your own symbols with acrylic paint or buy a set of music stickers.  Since I used card stock, I was able to make my music matching game self-correcting since each pair has its own color.  The symbols and instruments that I used were a music note, a trumpet, an electric guitar, a grand piano, a cello, and a treble clef.
