Try a small brown paper bag with a treat or two in it, folded over on top and maybe a small hole punched in it to give him the idea.
Paper cupcake liners with a treat inside and twisted shut so he has to rip the paper apart to get the treat.
Bird-safe shredded paper (like from a paper shredder) mixed in with pellets or other dry food, so he has to dig around to get his food.
Coffee filters, torn into smaller pieces, with treats inside and twisted shut -- same idea as the cupcake liners.
There's lots of things at the dollar store that you can use to put treats in. Look in the party favor or baby/wedding shower area. I bought little boxes with handles, kind of like Chinese take-out boxes only smaller, that I put treats in and hung from a perch or cage top. Lots of ideas at the dollar store that are really cheep.....er....cheap!
Chinese finger traps with a nutraberry stuffed inside, for example. My GCC LOVES to chew up finger traps!
Hope this gives you a few ideas!
