Cardboard Tube Toy for cats and kittens

Our cats and kittens love toys to play with and having fun toys stops them  from getting bored while they are waiting to find their forever home. You can make cardboard tube toys for our cats and kittens by following the instructions  below. 

Remember to ask your parent's or guardian's permission before making these toys or giving them to your own pets to play with. Cats should always be supervised when playing with this toy.

Parents: It is your responsibility to ensure that this project and this toy are appropriate for your child and your pet.

Equipment needed:


Cardboard paper towel or toilet tissue roll



1. Cut slits approximately 2cm long up the edge of the toilet roll taking care to cut away from yourself.

2. Push flaps up creating a frill.

3. Do the same to the other side.

4. Tie a piece of string around the toilet roll length ways.

Tip: For kittens you can make smaller ones by cutting the toilet roll in half.

Many thanks from the cats and kittens at RSPCA.
