Recycled XMAS Cards

African Grey Plays with Recycled Xmas CardI discovered this enrichment tip while sitting in my living room watching television this past weekend. Zorba, my CAG, was determined to distract me by gently nipping at my arm. I had a few Christmas cards on the table next to me. I got one, folded it in accordion pleats, then folded it in half and handed it to Zorba. This new foot toy kept him busy so I could watch television in peace for a little while. Instead of tossing your cards, you might want to try folding them for use as a foot toy or you could incorporate the folded cards into other toys that you make.
