now for my other toys i made (these have the toy parts from mysafebirdstore)
palm shredder, vine ball, finger trap, small cardboard box (these boxes are PERFECT for budgies!)
mini vine balls, jute sticks, drilled almonds
dollar tree tickets with pony beads and finger traps
rattan balls, finger traps, palm shredder
rattan balls, mini popsicle sticks, colored lollipop sticks, tickets
vine cornucopia stuffed with crinkle paper, capped with a vine ball that is held on my a lollipop stick and has a finger trap stuck in it
i bought some pine and made some of my own toy parts
pine, coconut chunk, cardboard
and last but not least- the paper mat! i made this for my rabbit, but it would be nice for birds. (probably less destructive ones so your 2 hours of mat making doesn't go to waste!)
for this, you will need a whole roll of the dollar tree paper. first you will cut the paper every 6 inches. don't try and flatten it!
once cut, it will try and fold up again. just squish the paper as shown, but to the whole thing
continue until you have 30 of them.
start the weaving process! clothespin- one over, one under etc and leaf some overlap
you will eventually find what way is easiest for you to weave them...
when you are done (you might not be able to fit all of the pieces) fold every other strand over and tuck it into the next one...
then flip it over and do the rest of them.
not bad for my first mat
"oh for me?"
it really ties the room together (not!)
