Cut out an entrance and a courtyard door on one of the boxes, and use the walls you cut out earlier to tape them on the outside.

In order to make the ball, you’ll only need 3 things: a pen, a pair of scissors, and an empty toilet paper roll.
Your first step is to mark lines around the roll and cut out 4 equal part out of it. Each ring should be no bigger than a finger’s width.
The next thing to do is insert the first ring into the second, and continue onto inserting the 3rd and 4th ring. You can add some finishing touches on the ball by doodling something on it.
Just be sure not to skip the final step, and add a few of the Friskies party mix inside the ball and let your cat have some fun getting them out.
