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. Roll the toilet paper roll up in the paper bag. Cut off the excess paper, twist the ends and give to the rabbit for enjoyment. Submit completed projects to PH: 361 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105.
