Creative DIY

Squawk, it's me, Cockatoo Jewel, your go-to source for all things parrot-tastic. Today, we're diving into a bit of creative DIY action for your fid!

We all know that parrots are some of the smartest, most curious creatures out there. They need mental stimulation and activities to keep their beaks and brains busy. And what better way to do that than with toys! But hey, let's not break the bank by buying new toys every week, shall we?

That's where the magic of recycling and repurposing comes in! I'm here to share a little secret with you: taking apart old or unused parrot toys to create brand-new ones can be a hoot of an adventure!

First things first, gather up those tired, old toys that have been gathering dust in your bird's play area. Dust 'em off and give them a good wash in some F10 (you know, to keep things squeaky clean). Let them bask in the sun, or maybe just let them air-dry – it's up to you, mate!

Once they're all fresh and clean, it's time for the fun part. Start brainstorming new ideas! You can mix and match parts from different toys to create something unique. Blocks, beads, and twine - the possibilities are endless! And if you're feeling extra crafty, head over to to snag some DIY supplies that will take your parrot's toys to the next level of excitement.

Picture this: a colourful, jingling masterpiece of a toy that will keep your parrot chirping with joy for hours on end. It's like a parrot playground in their cage!

Remember, the key here is to keep it light and fun. Get creative, embrace your inner birdie artist, and watch your parrot's eyes light up with delight as they explore their new, one-of-a-kind plaything.

So, turn those old toys into new treasures and give your feathered friends the time of their lives. It's a win-win – you get to save some cents, and your parrot gets to enjoy endless hours of entertainment.

Until next time, chirp on and keep those creative feathers ruffled!
