Guinea pigs are fairly simple animals that like to run through things, chew things, toss things around, and just generally like to get into things. Making a toy for them is easy!
You can take any finished toilet paper roll & give it to them as is, they'll love chewing it & tossing it around! You can (don't have to) cut it length wise so they won't get their heads stuck.
You can pinch the ends shut and poke a piece of yarn or a strip of fabric through the two sides to hold it closed, and put treats inside.
You can cut the roll into a few rings and fashion it into a simple ball.
You can cut the roll into rings, and thread yarn through the ring through the cardboard and make a mobile of sorts to hang from the ceiling of their cage. Make it long enough for them to poke at.
You can take cardboard boxes and cut holes through them for your pig to run in or through. Build a lose obstacle course for them to play in or chew on.
Paper bags are a cheap fun hideout for piggies! Fill with hay or leave empty.
Fill an old sock with soft bedding or cotton. Your pigs may make it into a pillow or a toy to toss around.
A crumpled up newspaper makes for a fun ball. An old ping pong or tennis ball they can push around. Drill a hole through the ping pong ball and hang from cage ceiling with yarn.
There are so many things you can come up with and do for your piggies. Just get creative with piggie safe materials!
