Does anyone make toys/treats etc for their buns to play with?

If so, please post details :) I am looking ideas to keep my boys occupied :)

I stuff loo rolls with hay, which my lot adore pulling to pieces. Also, cardboard boxes with a holes cut in them for different escape routes seem to go down well (Staples do good boxes if you can't find any nearby for free).

I just made them both loo rolls stuffed with hay and some carrot poking out and they loved them! Adrian loves his hay so he is having a fab time munching through it and I cut little holes in so it pokes out all over. Joey got really cross as he couldn't pull the carrot out and was trying to dig it out with his paws and then tossing it around :D

a big underbed storage box/a very deep litter tray full with dirt to play in, mine love it. (only good if buns are outside though!!)

Mine are outside, but would this make them more inclined to dig? Joey is also white so would he clean himself up after? Do you just put soil in?

I grabbed my camera to get some pics of them playing with their loo rolls. Typical they decided that they were tired and were dozing when I got back outside :roll:

my bunnies have never dug holes in the ground, the ground is too hard and they cant be bothered. a big box of loose soil is fun because its loose and they can kick it up, ive never seen pebbles dig once. but as soon as u put a box of dirt in there she goes crazy!
They do clean themselves dont worry, pebbles is also pretty much white!
