So far, I've bought a bag of crinkle paper shreds to put in a bowl and make him dig around for seeds, tissue paper to wrap nutriberries in, and Chinese finger traps to hide millet in!
Rio likes to chase little cat balls with the "balls" of millet spray taken off and placed inside to roll around with the bell.

A simple treat rolled up with the cardboard unrolled from a toilet paper roll and tied with a small bird safe string (tightly and thin so they don't untie it,) makes for great chewing or treat grabbing depending on how tightly you tie it.

I have made hanging foragers for other birds by making a tiny box out of thin cardboard, cutting holes in each side like Swiss cheese slices, and stuffing an assortment of thinly shredded paper and millet "balls." to be pulled out. My birds love them. I usually tie a bit of other things tied to it like apple wood twigs and beads, but that's not necessary of course.
