If you are going to make a run, you will need:
*Toilet and towel paper rolls
*Pale tissue boxes
*Pen or pencil
To start off making your hamster run, make sure you have a few boxes and tubes. Now, trace around a tube so you will have a circular outline of the tube. Cut it out and use tape to stick it to a tissue box where you want an opening.Cut around the circle of paper until there is a hole in the tissue box. If you are a kid, you might want some help from an older sibling or a parent. Continue to do this until stisfied, but on use each tube one to two times, there should only be as many holes as there are tubes, as to make sure your hamster will have one door in each box, and a few openings into different 'tunnels'. Now is the tricky part. Making holes in the tubes. It isn't very tricky, just hard to cut them out. You will want to do the same thing with paper, tape and scissors as you did with the tissue boxes. Now put the pieces together to create your hamster run. If there are any holes you don't want, use some paper, and tape the OUTSIDE only, as to enable your hamster from getting tape on itself, or eating it. Put this inside your hamster town as to make boundaries, and add more fun to your hamster's life. This will give your hamster something to do while you clean out his or her cage if you think you hamster needs a break from the ball or playpen.
