Title: Fun, free toys around the house!
Post by: alliemackie on May 07, 2010, 10:29:35 AM
I find that there's often not much need to invest in pricey toys for ferts, as a lot of things I've already got in the house keep them endlessly entertained.  :D What around-the-house stuff do you use to keep your fuzzies entertained?

Here's a few I'm a big fan of:

- Plastic grocery bags (under supervision, of course, but they LOVE the crinkles and burrowing in them)

- Toilet paper rolls (they love attacking them and stashing them)

- Stainless steel mixing bowl (a weird one, but they love the noise it makes if they climb in and flail about!)

- Clean dryer tubes (this one should be obvious - tunnels)

- Strands of yarn (for chasing and tackling)

- Plastic bottles (watching them trying to stash these is a hoot and a half...)

- Cardboard boxes with packing peanuts (I often get big packages, and save the box + peanuts for a free digbox. Just be sure to supervise fuzzies so they don't ingest peanuts. Mine have no interest in putting the peanuts in their mouths)

Share your freebie ideas!  :)

Our girl loves to climb in and out of my rubber boots. I've found the insoles all over the house.
