Step 1: Shred paper, cardboard, “junk” mail in one inch strips. You can loop newspaper and make a hole or do it while assembling (waiting was easier for us).
Step 2: Prepare egg carton by cutting each individual cup then put a hold in the center with a nail (or with something sharp).
Step 3: Put holes in the center of bottle caps with hammer and nails. *May want to use a board to not damage the surface you’re hammering nail on.
Step 4: Cut toilet paper tubes into approximately 1/2 inch strips
Step 5: Interlock toilet paper roll strips to make a ball. Then tie twine through the ball to secure the lives together.
Step 6: Make the “kabob”… cut a 18 inch piece of twine and tie a knot on the bottom. Then randomly place pieces on the string. (You may want to add tape to the end you are treading through this will make it easier to thread.)
Step 7: Ready to give to your Feathered Friend

Cookie Box Cat Scratcher:
Step 1: Cut the bottom of the cookie cardboard box approximately 2” all the way around.
Step 2: Cut several strips of the cardboard approximately 2 ” x 15″ depending on the size of your cardboard base.
Since corrugated cardboard can be hard to cut and the instruments suggested can be dangerous if not handled properly, we recommend an adult take responsibility for this step.
Step 3: Lay the first strip flat inside the box, cut side up. Take the next strip and cover with glue and lay it on top of the first one. Continue in this manner until you the strips have been sandwiched tightly together.
(Optional suggestion) Cover your work surface with newspaper to catch any hot glue spills.
Step 5: When completely dry, sprinkle with a little catnip if you wish.
Step 6: Give to a lucky cat for their scratching pleasure.
