Homemade Foraging

While at a local second hand store (where I frequently go to find possible toys for Nani) I came across this roll of black honeycomb type plastic ribbon for a dollar. I'm really not sure what it's used for, but I thought it might make a good foraging toy because the holes were the perfect size. I suppose this material wouldn't work for larger parrots, but small to medium sized birds would be fine. At the dollar store I picked up a roll of red ribbon and went home to start my creation. I wasn't sure if Nani would try it out, but it ended up being a hit! So for only $2 I can make multiple foraging toys...not bad.

Step By Step "The Parrot Pouch":
homemade foraging toy items: honeycomb ribbon and red gift ribbon
fold ribbon
weave in edges

Never know what you might find in second hand stores, that is a really cool foraging toy idea. And it looks like Nani agrees!
