Greetings! This week I will be demonstrating how I created this really neat popsicle stick bridge for Beanie, my Syrian hamster.

This toy is inspired by those rainbow-bridge toys, which I’ve tried making before. However, I find it is very difficult to get the rails right when I try with cardboard, so I wanted to try it with popsicle sticks. Personally, I’m quite pleased with the results!

I definitely want to experiment with that. You could use coloured sticks, and do themed cages!
