Step 1: Finding the Materials

1 pole any kind would do but make sure it's not a smooth metal one.
1 piece of string. Any kind will do but cats can rip shoe laces and thin strings with their tongue.
1 piece of paper any kind would do.
1 cat make sure it's not lazy.

Step 2: Tying the String

Tie the string to the poll and make sure it's secure. If the pole is metal then the string will slide around and trust me it's not fun trying to get the string back when it slides off.

Step 3: Crumple the Paper

Ball up the paper with your hands and tie the string (that is attached to the pole) around the ball.

Step 4: Put Everything Together

Now dangle the string above your cat and he will try to swat it. It should be very fun for him or her. Have fun with your new toy and cat.
