Almond Surprise
A bird toy suggestion by Leanna Rein

Materials Needed:

  • 2x2ā€™s cut to desired length
  • 1 eye hook
  • Almonds
  • Drill bit approximately the diameter of an almond
  • Optional: Screw with eye hole at end (or a shish-kabob stick)

Instructions:

  • Cut the 2x2ā€™s to the desired length. For example 6ā€ or 3ā€
  • Drill holes through each of the sides, making sure to alternate, so as the holes do not meet in the middle of the block
  • Screw the eye hook into one of the ends so it can be hung
  • Alternative hanging method: Screw smaller hole through the middle to insert a screw with eye hole at end (or a shish-kabob stick)
  • Pound almonds into the holes
  • Hang in cage or wherever and let your birds forage for the almonds. Birds enjoy chewing the wood to obtain the almond, or just make a mess.
