Homemade mazes give pet hamsters, gerbils and mice an opportunity to exercise their bodies and minds. Hamsters have fun using a well-designed maze, and children often conduct experiments with hamster mazes for science fair presentations. You can make a hamster maze with recyclable household objects. To train the hamster to use the maze, place a treat at the end and in strategic spots within the maze.

Things you need

Plan a maze using a piece of graph paper. To make things easier, you can trace a maze in a puzzle book.
Draw a scale outline of the maze inside a cardboard box. Make each section of the maze wide enough for your hamster to comfortably run through.
Cut pieces of cardboard as long as the sections in your maze. Cut holes in a few of the pieces big enough to slip a paper tube through.
Glue the edges of the cardboard pieces inside the cardboard box over the outline drawn earlier.
Slip paper tubes into the holes cut through the cardboard pieces. The maze is now ready for your hamster.
