DIY Bunny Toys

Have you recently adopted a bunny? Good for you! Bunnies are super cute little pets. It probably won’t take Floppy very long at all to completely wrap you around her paws. One of the best ways to keep your furry pal happy and healthy is to provide her with lots of fun toys to play with. Bunnies are very curious and playful, and will get bored with nothing to do. They also need to chew quite a bit to keep their teeth from growing too long. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on your pet’s toys, however. In this article, a local Moorpark, CA vet lists some simple DIY bunny toys.


You can make some great bunny toys out of cardboard. The tubes from toilet paper or paper towel rolls come in very handy here. You can cut them into rings and then reassemble them into balls, or make pyramid shapes out of them. Or, just put several into a tissue box or shoebox for your furry buddy.


Plain paper can be very useful in keeping Floppy’s toybox full. Shred some plain copy paper, and put the pieces in a paper bag or shoebox. You can also make little paper shapes for your cute pet, or crumple up sheets of paper into little balls for her.

Wood/Wicker Items

Many wood and wicker items make terrific bunny toys! Floppy may enjoy playing with wooden blocks or spoons, or other items. Just be sure to avoid hard woods, like pine and cedar.

Hopstacle Course

We all know that bunnies love to hop and climb. Make your pet a little ‘hopstacle’ course by setting out boxes or footstools for her to play with.

Food Toys

Just like most other pets, bunnies love yummy treats. You can incorporate small snacks into Floppy’s playtime to keep things fun and interesting for her. String a piece of twine between two chairs, and use clothespins to hang some leafy greens from it. Or, stuff a paper lunch bag with fresh herbs.


Safety first! Never give your bunny anything with sharp edges, dangling threads, or small parts. Items covered in decorative coating, like paint, glitter, or dye, are best avoided as well.
