My cats love to play with anything that involves a string. They needed a new Halloween toy, so I made them a bat wand toy. I already had all the needed supplies, so it was completely free and they love it. You can make one, too!
Sturdy dowel 3-4 feet long
Small amount of felt
Small amount of string or yarn
Step 1: Draw up a template. I drew a simple bat. You could make whatever shape you want. If you want to use my template, you can find it here.
Step 2: Pin the bat to the felt.
Step 3: Cut the bats out. I cut out six bats.
Step 4: Thread the string through the bats.
Step 5: Tie a knot below each bat to keep them spaced out.
Step 7: Thread the string through the hole in the dowel.
Step 8: Tie the string to the dowel.
Step 9: Play with your cat!
