Basic Fan Toy for Cats and Kittens

Our cats and kittens love toys to play with and having fun toys stops them  from getting bored while they are waiting to find their forever home. You can make paper fans for our cats and kittens by following the instructions below. 

Remember to ask your parent's or guardian's permission before making these toys or giving them to your own pets to play with. Cats should always be supervised when playing with this toy.

Parents: It is your responsibility to ensure that this project and this toy are appropriate for your child and your pet.

Equipment needed:

  • 1 piece of craft paper or coloured card?

  • 20 - 30cm of string or wool


  1. Fold paper accordion style in approximately 2cm stripes.
  2. Tightly wrap your piece of string (or wool) around the middle of the paper; ensure the end of your string is knotted tightly
  3. Finished!

Many thanks from the cats and kittens at SPCA.
