Christmas toys!
These are the fid's stockings fire Christmas.
What i used:
A bit of dilluted food dye
Coffee filters
flour and water paste and a tooth pick
Various seeds and treats
A bit of string

I dyed and cut 2 stocking shapes and then glued them together with the paste, leaving room for treats inside. Then, i stuffed them with millet and cooked pumkin seeds and decorated the outside. I finished them with the initials of each bird and a loop of sissel to hang by.
The larger ones are for the cockateils, which are about 3 inches tall and the smaller ones are for the budgies which are about 2.5 inches tall. I know the fids will love them <3 even if they're only around for a day! Lol
in order, Zoo, Vixen, Dolly and Clover

I made this toy using materials I got from mysafebirdstore.com.
I used: Hemp rope ($1.99), Sola beads with hole 1/2 ounce ($3.49), Mini pod cup 6 pack ($2.79), and Crinkle paper 2 oz ($1.00). I know that seems like a lot for one toy but you will have a lot of crinkle paper, sola beads, and hemp rope left over to use on other toys. I put about 5 sola beads in between every pod cup and filled the cups with crinkle paper and treats. Chipper loves taking all the crinkle paper out and throwing it on the floor. Sorry these pictures aren't the best he watched me make it so once I was done he was already playing.

Paper

Where did you get the roll of paper? My babies would love the paper, they do not like the popcycle sticks .. they ignore them, but I know the paper will occupy them for hours.:pied:
