DIY Guinea Pig Toys: The Ultimate List

1. Toilet Paper Roll Treat Dispenser

  1. Grab an empty toilet paper roll and some of your guinea pig's favorite treats (hay works well too).
  2. Make small cuts around one end of the roll and fold the flaps inward to create a closed end.
  3. Fill the roll with treats and fold the other end closed.
  4. Watch your guinea pig go wild trying to get the treats out!

2. Cardboard Box Hideout

  1. Find a small cardboard box (a shoebox works great).
  2. Cut out a guinea pig-sized entrance and windows for extra fun.
  3. Place the box in your guinea pig's cage and watch them explore (and chew on) their new hideout.

3. Sock Snuggle Bed

  1. Take an old, clean sock (the fuzzier, the better).
  2. Stuff it with soft, pet-safe material like fleece or cotton batting.
  3. Take the open end and fold it around to the closed end.
  4. Sew the open end shut (connected to the closed end), and voilà! A cozy snuggle bed for your guinea pig to curl up in.

4. DIY Guinea Pig Tunnels

  1. Use an old pair of jeans.
  2. Cut the legs off the jeans.
  3. Place the "tunnels" in your guinea pig's cage for endless exploration and playtime.

5. Hanging Veggie Skewer

  1. Find a wooden or stainless steel skewer (make sure it's safe for pets).
  2. Skewer your guinea pig's favorite veggies, like bell peppers, cucumber, and zucchini.
  3. Hang the skewer in your guinea pig's cage and watch them nibble away!
