    Cheap parrot toys can really bring your parrot supplies costs down. It is even better if you can make your own parrot toys. As parrots are so intelligent, they need constant stimulation. By providing interesting parrot toys, you can ensure that your bird is kept entertained and safe. You can also make sure that your bird has toys that suit his own personality. See the following tips on making your own cheap parrot toys. %%AFC-ADVERT%%

    You Will Need:
    •    Differently shaped leather strings or Paulie rope
    •    Wooden and plastic blocks with holes
    •    Beads
    •    Quick links

    Toy 1
    To begin making the first of the parrot toys, cut up three different pieces of leather or paulie rope into 3 foot sections and knot them at the top. Place a quick link in between the material lengths just underneath the knot. From this link, braid the 3 lengths tightly. When you reach the end, make a strong knot.

    Now, string the blocks and beads onto the three material lengths left hanging. Knot the ends. If you use paulie rope for these cheap parrot toys, you can melt the knots a little so that it is more secure and cannot be untied.

    Toy 2
    To make the second of these cheap parrot toys you will need a wide plastic piece. A boomerang shape would be ideal. Drill a hole in the middle of the plastic, and then drill 3 more either side of the hole. These holes should have an equal distance between them.

    Now string lengths of the rope or leather through the holes, about 2 feet in length. The rope should hand down evenly.

    Knot two of the hanging pieces together and a time and string all your different blocks and beads onto them. Know the ends off so that the blocks cannot fall off your parrot toys.
