Because birds need their toys to be changed out frequently, and because many times their toys end up shredded, broken, or otherwise torn apart, it can help to have a few extras on hand. One creative way to provide your bird with fun toys is to make them yourself at home.
Cardboard toys are clean, non-toxic, disposable, and fun, all of which make them wonderful for both birds and owners. To make some simple toys for your bird, you will need to gather the necessary materials:
- One or two cardboard paper towel tubes
- Food Coloring
- A clean new paintbrush (any size)
- Four small containers for dye
- Two cups cold water
