This one I have planned and have been impatient to do! Make my own hamster platforms!
I went to Michael’s Crafts and bought these wood shapes and plaques all of which was under a buck each. I cut to size a Woodsies inch thick dowel rod and then sanded them. My 3 year old and I painted them with non-toxic kid paint. Then I elaborated more with paint to give it more personal touches. Then I drilled holes in the base and the dowels to glue and bolt them to the base. And used both wood glue and hot glue to attach the platform shapes to the tops of the rods. Then I used a sealant over it to waterproof it (pee proof).
Bob’s is obviously Mushrooms. And Penny’s is obviously hers! The piece that has the bear like shape (meant to make it more like a hamster) has an imperfection that makes it seem like something stained it but that’s alright.
I am letting them air out for a few days before I put them in their homes.
This was the original inspiration – these can only be bought from the UK:
