The 30-second toy
Parrots love to destroy their toys; to keep up with demand, here’s a toy that is so easy to make, it only takes 30 seconds!
Coffee Stirrer/Wooden sticks
First, take the cup, and make a slit on both sides to slide in a wooden coffee stirrer (or colorful sticks). Stuff the cup with some brightly-colored shredded paper and cover the cup with a napkin. Wrap twine (or leather strips) around the rim of the cup, to hold down the napkin, and use the extra piece of twine to tie to two ends. And you’re done! Hang the toy in your pet bird’s cage and watch it have fun!
You’ll know if the toy is hot when your parrot gives you the ultimate compliment —complete destruction (in 30 seconds)!
