Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What Do You Need
- A lot of cardboard (large enough)
- A pencil
- A compass
- Paper glue (one that is non toxic)
- A cutter
- A measuring tool (meter)
Note that if you don't have a large enough compass (for the biggest diameters about 50 cm) you may use a homemade tool with a piece of wood, your pencil, a screw or a nail and two clamps. See the photo.
Step 2: Draw and Cut
The PDF is the table of measurements for cardboard cat house (in english and french). For each layer you will have the outer diameter and for certain layers you will also have the inner diameter and the opening.
Draw and cut all the pieces.
Don't forget to write the number of each piece so you can put them together more easily.
Step 3: Check
Before the assembly, check your work.
Step 4: Glue
Glue all the pieces together in the right order : 1, 2, 3, 4, ...
Leave to dry for at least 24 hours. You may put some weight on it to be sure having a good contact between pieces.
Step 5: Cat Checking Your Work
Present your work to your cat.
He will be delighted.
Step 6: Conclusion
I hope many cats will be happy with this instructable.
Sorry if there are mistakes, english is not my mother tongue.
