Step 1: Your Materials
1. A large fairly cubical box to form the main part of the habitat.
2. Soft rags and clothes
3. An orange juice carton
4. A long box in the shape of a rectangular prism
5. A strawberry/ blueberry crate
6. A glue gun
7. Glue sticks (The type that go into the glue gun!)
8. A macaroni box
*These are all easily acquired materials that are in the average recycling bin (Except for the glue gun & glue).*
Step 2: The Main Box
Note: Be sure the window is small enough where your animal cannot fit through.
Step 3: The Add-On: Part 1
Step 4: The Add-On: Part 2
Afterwards, construct the staircase. Depending on the size of your box, the stairway should go three-quarters of the way up the box. You should make it out of the orange-juice carton and be sure it is the correct width for your animal. Once you have constructed a staircase shape, cut a rectangular piece of orange juice carton the width of the staircase and the height of the box. Then proceed to glue it to the far side of the staircase. (The one you're not glue to the box.) Now glue it on.
Step 5: The Add-On: Part 3
Take the macaroni box and cut it in down the middle of the face. Seal off the back end. On top cut a "window" (open on 3 sides) that will serve to hold Timothy Hay or other treats in place.
Finally, take the top of the strawberry carton and glue it to the end of the staircase.
