Foraging Drum

New one i made for my guys, they all LOVE them!

sorry the photos are smaller, i had resized them to add to my website lol

step one, take a paper cup (i use sample cups from work)


step two, fill it with fun stuff like raffia, 1" cut drinking straws, paper shreds, you name it. Also add treats.


step three, take a cupcake paper and cover the top of the cup and mold it to the top



step four, take cotton twine (or other bird safe rope) and tie tightly around the rim of the cup.


step five, tie a clip onto the cup with the excess twine. I use plastic chainlink as a clip.


step six, poke holes in the paper at the top so the bird has something to start shredding. as the bird gets used to the toy, each time you make a new one, make less and less holes


This toy is Munch approved



I didnt get a photo of everyone else playing as i had to go to work. but when i got home, the toys were all destroyed and empty
