    My daughter and I took the cord that ties the hay bales tied a bell on the bottom, strung on a salt lick left and inch of cord to the tied on apple branch piece inch of cord to mineral lick and inch of cord to next branch then tied to top of cage. Simple. One of my boys put an empty eaten stuffed clam in one of the cages and they liked it as a toy, but toilet paper roll stuffed with hay is still the favorite. They wanted to do a pinecone birdseed dangle toy, but can rabbits eat pinecones?

    We have given our rabbits dried out pinecones without having any problems from them.
    We also save any empty medicine bottles and put a few dried beans inside for them to toss around.

    Clean pop bottles with a few pebbles inside.

    Old phone books...paper feed bag liners (mine LOVE to destroy paper)

    Canning jar rings

    Wooden chewing blocks

    They aren't picky....mine like things they can throw around, rip up, and just be obnoxious with. :) I used to have a doe that really enjoyed throwing an empty pop bottle against the wall of her cage...hard. She made me wonder if she was practicing for the World Series!
