What can you do with one old sock? Fill the foot with catnip, knot the ankle and give it to a cat who wants a toy!
Do you have a stuffed animal or two that you don't cuddle with any more? Donate them to the League or another local animal shelter. Not all stuffed animals are okay, they need to have the batting-type of stuffing -- not sawdust or beans.
You can make fun tuggy toys with old towels. Tear (or cut) them into strips and tie them together, pull the knots super tight and then use the tuggy toys to play with your dog. You can sneak some dog cookies into the knots and watch your dog untie the toy!
Can't get the last little bit of peanut butter out of the jar? Bet your dog can. Peanut butter is a yummy treat. A dog with a nearly empty jar of peanut butter can be occupied for a long time.
There are lots of reuse/recycle ideas that can be used to create fun cat and dog toys, do you have some that you have created? Please share them here. Let's reuse and recycle ideas so our animals will have lots of fun things to do.
Debbie, the Brownies will be coming with handmade toys soon! We scored a big box of "old" tennis balls from R&J Sports in Bethesda (they collect for recycling) and will be drilling holes and adding knotted ropes at your suggestion. We're also making braided fleece pull toys. Can't wait to see you!ReplyDelete
