more toys i made

i am on a roll! i have so many toy ideas and i spend all day making them
most of these are easy to make!

the "millet clamp" for holding small pieces of millet.




my little Leonard eating from it... what a pig..


the "5 tier forager". butch likes to eat from this toy, lenny gets curious but does eat from it- yay Butch!


"bits and pieces" egg carton toy made from the scraps of the 5 tier forager.


"the millet bin", for the birds that are pigs and eat a lot of millet... like lenny. now he has to work to get it. made to hold the little millet pices (shown below it)


the happy hut

Awesome

I've run out of egg cartons haha
I need more!


Love the happy hut
They are so easy to make, it's not worth spending $10 at a pet store!

i go around my house collecting egg cartons, paper towel/toilet paper rolls and cardboard.. this is the life

and DIY happy huts are made out of cardboard not like the floppy store ones!

Those are brilliant ideas! I love the forager, they're really expensive for the plastic ones so I MAY just have to try that my self haha
