Paper Mache Hideout

Give your rat a paper nest! Blow up a balloon to the size of the hideout, mix water and flour in a bowl to make glue and add several drops of food coloring to dye the glue. Cut sheets of white paper into strips, dip one strip of paper in the glue, smooth the paper around the balloon and repeat until the balloon is covered. Allow the paper mache hideout to dry, pop the balloon and cut the doorway or a window out of the hideout. Poke four holes in sides of the hideout, weave a string through the holes on each side of the hideout and knot the strings at the top for easy hanging. Stuff the hideout with shredded paper and hang the nest in your rat cage!
