Intro: Make a Toy for Your Cat Using Cardboard

Hi! I read in the newspaper an article about cats and how boring could be their life if we do not make something to change it, especially if they can not go outside! The idea of this simple toy was shown -and I am pretty sure that it is in google too-. Make this simple toy creating your own box or reusing old boxes, the only thing you need is an small ball ;)

Step 1: Get Your Materials

You will need

  • Scalpel (Not scissors)
  • A box or cardboard to create a new one Two small balls (more or less depending how big is your box)
  • Pencil
  • Any round object (make sure it is smaller than the balls)

First, cut the cardboard following the pattern above (feel free to change it as desired)

Step 2:

Draw all circles and start cutting them. I used a wood carving tool because I didn't have any scalpel at home (I tried to use scissors and it was awful). As you can see, it is really simple.

Step 3: The Final Step

Start assembling the box and before closing it, place the balls inside.

Step 4: Enjoy Watching Your Cats Playing With It!

They will have hours of fun if you make this! It only takes a few minutes :)

By the way, there is a video of my cats first reaction! Believe me, your cats will love it Have fun!!

This is awesome! I'm definitely going to have to make this for my cat. His favorite toy at the moment are a few long thin strips of stretchy panty-hose tied together. Thanks for sharing!

Cute! But the on small ball we have is a bouncy ball. Will that work?
