Cats go crazy for this catnip toy craft, whether it's still growing or made into a toy.
What You'll Need:
Catnip is an herb that you can buy at a plant nursery and grow in a pot or garden. Cats love to play in it and eat it. Don't just make toys out of catnip -- plant some in a place where a cat can enjoy it.
How To Make Your Catnip Toy:
Step 1: Cut a piece of felt into an interesting shape, such as a mouse.
Step 2: Lay the shape on another piece of felt and trace around it. Cut out your tracing to make a second shape that's exactly the same as the first.
Step 3: Use a needle and thread to sew the two pieces of felt together, but leave a small opening.
Step 4: Stuff the toy with catnip, then sew it shut.
