Homemade Rabbit Play Box

Here is another homemade rabbit toy which I find that its a very good play box for your rabbit to enjoy playing in and eat at the same time. Below is a list of materials and step by step instructions for you to follow to create your own homemade rabbit toy for your bunny to enjoy!

Materials:

  • A box - make sure its low enough for them to jump into it, and big enough for them to hop and turn around in. 
  • a few sheets of newspaper
  • a few handfuls of hay or straw 
  • some sort of treat - i.e. carrot pieces - for them to eat and find


Instructions:

Step 1: Have a box ready and either cut off the flaps, or fold them into the box and put in your sheets of newspaper scrunched up but not very much so the few sheets fill about half of the box (like below).

Step 2: Chop up your chosen fruit/vegetable (unless your using a treat) and cut it into small pieces (it doesn't have to be like the pictures below, however you want to)

Step 3: Add it into your box and mix it into it (like below).

Step 4: Add in your hay or straw into this mixture as well (like below) I used straw.
Step 5: Give this to your bunny (in his hutch or run) and leave him to it!

If you have made this, I would love to hear about how your bunny played with it!

WARNING: if you have given them some fruit or vegetable which can go off, i would make sure to clean out this box daily to make sure that there isn't anything mouldy in there. Also make sure to only give them small amounts of whatever you are giving them as this could cause obesity so make sure to not overfeed your bunny, give him around a handful.
