The cardboard tubes from toilet paper or paper towel rolls can make all sorts of cute bunny toys. Cut one into rings, and reassemble the rings around a yummy tidbit, so that it forms a ball. Or, just fill one with fresh hay, and fold the edges shut, so Floppy has to chew her way to her snack. Another option is to fill a shoebox with these rolls, and drop treats into a few of them. Look online for more fun ideas.
Stuff a paper lunch bag with fresh herbs. You can also fill a paper bag or shallow cardboard box with crumpled-up paper balls.
Make little shapes out of plain paper for Floppy to play with. Many bunnies enjoy just playing with a pile of plain, shredded paper. You can also fold a piece of paper around a small snack.
Hang a piece of twine between two chairs, and then use clothespins to hang some leafy greens from it. This can keep your cute pet occupied for quite a while!
Many bunnies like to dig. Get a shallow plastic storage tote, and fill it with shredded paper. Hide a few toys under the paper to make it even more fun for your adorable furball.
Build a little obstacle course for your furry pal. You can use footstools or sturdy boxes.
Always put your pet’s safety first when choosing toys. Never give Floppy anything with small pieces or sharp edges that could cut or choke her. You’ll also want to avoid anything that has been covered with varnish, glitter, paint, or dye. Bunnyproofing is also very important. Ask your vet for more specific recommendations.
