Our pets became like family members and all we want to do is spoil them with toys, right? Well, what about doing your pet’s toys yourself? There are a multitude of fun DIY toys you can make yourself and watch your pet having fun with them as well!
Tennis Ball Muffin Tin Puzzle
This game is perfect for your dog! All you need is a muffin tin and tennis balls. Simply place the tennis balls in the bottom of the muffin tin. You can set this game in front of your dog so they will understand what the game is about.
Your little feline will love this one! Take a piece of fabric and sew it into a small pouch. Fill it with dried catnip and sew the pouch securely. They love catnip so much, I assure you they will get addicted to this new toy!
Tug-of-War Rope Toy
Dogs love playing tug of war! And they are simple to make at home. Grab any type of unused towels, t-shirts or blanket and cut them into three strips of equal length. You can
choose the length from short to long, it doesn’t matter, it’s up to you! However, you might consider a longer rope for big dogs and a smaller one for puppies. Once you have the three strips, gather them and make a knot at one end. Then braid the strips very tightly together and tie another knot on the other end to secure the braid.
Feather Wand Toy
This toy will help to keep your cat entertained and to develop a fun exercise to keep them in shape. For this, you’ll just need feathers, a piece of string, and a stick or a rod. Attach a feather or a piece of string to a stick or dowel rod. You can use a hot glue gun or secure it tightly with tape. Then wave the feather wand in front of your cat for an interactive playtime session. Remember to supervise your pets while they play with these toys. Additionally, make sure that the materials used are safe for your pets and avoid any ingredients that may be harmful to them.
Roll & Feed Pipe
The pipe toy is a good way to make your pet work for their food. Our pet needs mental stimulation and this toy is a perfect solution to it. Take a PVC pipe and cut it to an appropriate length for your pet. Glue the PVC end caps. Then drill small holes in the pipe. Take into consideration the size of your pet’s treats or kibbles to not make it too easy for your pet to get them.
Toilet Paper Roll Rabbit Toys
You can create many fun toys for your fluffy rabbit, starting with an empty toilet paper roll! You can put hay or grass into the tube, your rabbit will enjoy pulling the pieces out. You can also cut empty rolls into spirals or rings so your rabbit can toss them around
Tie a string to the empty roll and hang it from the roof of their hutch, your bunny will have so much fun pushing the roll around.
Cats and small animals dig this! They are always looking for places to hide so this is for them! Take a cardboard box and cut a hole for the door and other tiny holes for the window. Now they have their own house in your house! Add blankets, toys and maybe more boxes of that type to make a cardboard box maze. They’ll love it!
Making your pet’s toys yourself and playing with them is a rewarding experience that strengthens the bond between you and your lovely pet. These simple yet fun ideas allow you to be creative while entertaining, mentally stimulating, and keeping your pet in shape.
