Safe and Healthy Rodent Pinata

About: I like star wars, Nerf, Knex, RC, my pets, flying quadcopters and making small things in the weekends.

This instructable will show you how to make a delicious treat and toy for your small pet!
Also it's not dangerous because it's coffee filter, so not with alot of chemicals in case they eat the paper to.
The rat you see is my rat Oki, my other rat Doki is somewhere in the tube.

-Coffee filter
-treats (I used dried insects, they love that)

Step 1: Fill the Pinata

Just put a bit of treats in the pinata, if you have multiple animals make sure all can have a treat.

Step 2: Fold It Up

Fold the pinata a few times to close it up.
Now they will have to work for the food what is really good for them.

Step 3: Give Your Pets the Toy

They will love it!

    It's called back-2-nature, a friend of my mom imports it. I think you can find it online. It is made of compressed old paper and basicly absorbs everything.


    It didn't take me too long, aside from drying it out. I put it in the oven. I use two rolls for my cage. I think I'll end up making an instructable for it next time I change the bedding!

    In case you are interested, a cheap way to make your own paper bedding is to pour hot water on a whole roll of toilet paper, take out the cardboard roll, squeeze all the water out and break it into pieces, and dry it out. It's just like the carefresh bedding at the pet store!


    sounds great. but I have to clean up alot and they have a really large surface so the premade stuff saves alot of time.

    But im definitly gonna use this if i run out of bedding again:)
