Easy DIY Foraging Toys

My Parrotlets, Ollie and Maui, seem like they could use something interesting to do. Then I saw the foraging basket on a recent post here and knew I had to find something that I could have fun making for them. So, off to youtube I went and found this video. I thought I'd share it because the ideas are so fun, using mostly things you already have in the house, like an ice cube tray, paper towels and twine, or cupcake wrappers on a string of beads. You'll see. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6Of7b3nQo0

I can't wait to give these a try!

The toys look nice. I'm too lazy to make toys and I should. I sit like a lump in front of the tv often enough!

I like the various toys he showed and how to make them. I was laughing at how gentle his birdies seemed as they took the seeds out of the hanging cups. Daisy loves her foraging toy that I made that looks like this (with some small differences) but she isn't gentle about getting the treats out! LOL!

I am going to try the ice cube tray toy and see how that goes over. I'm sure I'll get the birdie stink eye when I first put it in her cage!
