You can use anything for a pan. We use the cardboard trays at the shelter all the time. They last for days. A dish pan could be used too, really anything that has a fairly low side is fine however, I've seen the tiniest kittens crawl into a full size litter box - they take to it pretty readily so as long as you have plenty scattered around their play area you should be fine. I have 4 babies in my foster room since they were about 4 weeks old and I have 4 boxes in there all scattered around the perimeter of the room. I've only seen one accident.
