    Let Your Hamster Catch ‘Em All With This DIY Exercise Ball

    Game on.

    What you need:

    · Two hamster balls, one clear and one red

    · Tinting paint (if needed)

    · Small screwdriver

    · Printable sticker paper

    · Your hamster!


    Open up hamster balls by unscrewing the four screws around the middle of each ball. If needed, use the tinting paint to spray the outside (never the inside!) of one half red. Screw the two colors together. Create, print, and cut out a sticker, then apply it to the side of the ball. Build a running area for your hamster to explore using blocks or toys. Always supervise your hamster’s adventures, and never keep them in the ball for longer than 30 minutes at a time.
