Home made hamster/rat toys

We have a huuuge selection of hamster and rat toys as we have 8 hamsters and 2 rats...however although our hammies don't seem bored of the toys (we change them around everytime we clean them out)...we kind of are! And i think we have at least oine of every toy available in every pet store around here!

So am thinking of making some ? We have already made a cardboard playground but it wasnt as popular with them as i thought it would, they just seemed to get flustered. So anyone any ideas?
