Toy: Bamboo Swing (by TaffywDuck)

Bamboo Swing Toy

Simple yet wonderful!

  • First, you need one bamboo stick, about five to six inches in length and of at least 1/4" diameter.
  • Tie two strings of twine at each end of the stick and string beads (regular pony beads do best for this swing) until you reach a 12-15cm height.
  • Take a popsicle stick and pierce two holes at each end.
  • String the popsicle stick with the beads. This will keep the two sides apart and also add a touch of color if you use dyed (with food coloring) sticks.
  • Tie the two strings of twine together to form somewhat of a triangle on top of the popsicle stick.
  • Add a quick link or loop to hang in the cage!
