Have an abundance of toilet paper rolls in your home and aren’t sure what to do? Make this fun DIY cat toy ball! It can be used as a treat dispenser or simply serve as something that your cat(s) can bat around. It is also inexpensive and easy to replace, which is always a bonus for cat toys.

What you'll need:

  • Toilet paper roll
  • Scissors
  • Pen or pencil
  • Cat treats (optional)

* Please note that a kitty assistant is not guaranteed or promised for this activity.


  • Draw four lines spaced about half an inch apart. You will have part of the roll leftover, which is fine. You can save it as materials for another ball.

  • Cut the roll into rings. You should have four rings for the ball.

  • Take two rings. Insert one ring into another.

  • Repeat the process. Take the third ring and insert it into the second one.

  • Insert the last ring into the third ring. You may need to wiggle the rings around a bit so that they are evenly spaced.

  • This step is optional but is a good way to encourage cats to play with the toy. Insert a kitty treat inside the ball and give it to your cat(s) to play.
