Sound like fun?VIEW INSTRUCTIONS to get started.
    1. Cut off the bottom part of a paper bag (shown in picture)
    2. Make a longitudinal cut to the bag on one side only.

    1. Lay out the paper, and put the toilet paper roll on it.
    2. Fill the toilet paper roll with treats, hay, and the willow or apple stick. (CAUTION: only use twigs or sticks that you have purchased from a pet store, and are meant for rabbits. Certain woods are toxic to rabbits.) The stick should be big enough to stick out at both ends of the toilet paper roll.
    3. Roll the toilet paper roll up in the paper bag.

    1. Cut off the excess paper, twist the ends and give to the rabbit for enjoyment.
