Homemade dog or cat toys

Does anyone have any instructions on how to make dog or cat toys? I need something for our Girl Scout meeting. Thanks.

  • A simple cat toy is to pin two small (3 or 4 inches) squares of cloth together right sides together, turn outside out, fill with dried catnip, sew the last side together. What is done to use less catnip is to put some stuffing material- like polyester- in and put some catnip on that, but it doesn't make as potent a toy. For dogs, an oblong shape works, around 10 inches long, 3 or so inches wide, and instead of catnip, stuff it full of stuffing material- you can get the stuffing in crafts stores.

  • I wanted to add, use a nice cotton or other fabric for cat toys, for dog toys, they'll be getting much rougher use, so a heavier canvas or other cloth.
