The Hamster Helpers show us how to make a jungle gym for your hamster with popsicle sticks. The video gives a complete demonstration as well as written instructions for making this toy. You will need a pack of popsicle sticks and a hot glue gun.
The storage bin is made by gluing ten popsicle sticks together for the base, then gluing two sticks to each of the curved ends. Repeat this nine more times to complete the storage bin.
For the stairs glue four sticks together in a square, then add four more sticks across the square. Make the upper level by gluing nine sticks together; set this aside. To make the stacked side, glue 20 sticks on top of each other. Take the piece you set aside and glue two more sticks to the curved sides and attach all three pieces together. You can add more levels if you like. Make three sets of side walls using seven sticks each, attach the stairs, and itís ready for your hamster to enjoy.
