Every guinea pig loves something new and exciting to play with. Whilst sat in their enclosures a certain ” scare guinea” pal might be just the trick to keep them busy and occupied throughout the day whilst you’re doing errands, at work or school.
So here’s our step by step DIY tutorial on how to make your own!
You will need :
(Note : You’ll also need a craft knife or pair of scissors to cut holes into the tube, if you’re under age please ask an adult to help you!)
Step one : Using your scissors or craft knife cut two criss crosses on either side of the card tube.
Step two : Taking two Burgess Gnaw sticks , push them carefully through the holes you just made until they fit firmly in the tube.
Step three : You can then adjust the arms of your tube scare guinea so he can wave and say hi!
Step four : Next grab a pencil ( preferably a child safe pencil ) and doodle on your scare guinea’s face! You can make him smiley, grumpy or a derpy guinea just be imaginative and have fun!
Step five : Lastly through the top and bottom of the tube fill in your piggies favourite hay and herbs. You could even add some green beans for arms instead and place parsley, cucumber and other veggies inside your scare guinea to make your guinea pigs even more intrigued!
Tada you’re finished and oh my gosh its so wheeking cute! You’ve now made your own Scare guinea and all that’s left to do is pop it into your guinea pigs cage for them to enjoy!
