Kitty Play Regimen

I have a feeling my cats aren't getting enough active playtime. So I was just wondering what other people do to play with their cats and get them to "exercise" ...

Some of the things I have/do:

- "feather duster" toy (bunch of feathers on the end of a flexible stick)
- toy balls (cats like to play fetch with these and bat them around)
- feather/ball squeaky door hanger (toy suspended from a spandex string)

But it's not easy to play with all six cats, and I feel like they're not getting enough interactive play. Most of the time they just sleep or lounge around (which I know is perfectly normal) ... but I'm pretty sure they're bored. And, well ... they're getting a tad on the tubby side.

What do you guys do to play with your cats? What toys do you use and what do you do with them?

*edit* I used to have the kitty "fishing pole" which they all loved ... But my cats have a tendency to hide their toys, in particular the fishing pole and the feather duster.

To tire my cats out and make sure they get playtime, the fishing pole toys work best for us. I can get all four playing at once. I also use a laser pointer (but Minnie ignores it, so this is only good for the other three) and follow it up with a physical toy so they're not frustrated when it disappears.
