First, you draw out your circle at the size you want. Then divided it into layers, each layer has the thickness of your cardboard.
After that, measure the length radius of each circle you're about to draw

Step 3: Make the sphere

Cut out each circle and glue it correctly. At first it doesn't look like a sphere but as it does, it will.You can put a heavy object on to let the glue set.
When you complete, you might need to squeeze it a little to make it look more like a sphere

Step 4: Let your cat play

Awesome idea. Kinda simulates a yarn ball. I'm making one.

good luck

That is a great idea! It might be stronger and keep its shape better if you rotate every other layer by 90 degrees.

Good thought.

Love those crazy bunny kick eyes! :D

It's a definite upgrade from the aluminum foil ball my cats like so much!

I'm going to make them. My dogs will shred them. Oh well, it was already trash.

Great idea! Nice and light too I would imagine.

Also yeah the kitten really is irresistible too. :)

Aw, your kitten is adorable!

+1!
