String together a bridge of toilet paper tubes and hide treats inside to give your rabbit a fun hanging toy to play with. You can hang this bridge up between chair legs or in your rabbit’s enclosure. It’s great for chewing and foraging as your rabbit figures out how to get those yummy treats out of the cardboard tubes.

Items you need

  • 5-10 Toilet paper tubes
  • A razor or pointy object
  • String 


  1. Poke four holes, two on each end, in each of your toilet paper tubes. You want to be able to run your piece of string through either end of the tubes to keep them from falling over when you hang it up.
  2. Cut two long pieces of string and add the cardboard tubes to them. Make sure there are at least a few extra inches of string on either end so you can easily hang the bridge up.
  3. Tie a knot in the string at both ends of the bridge. This will help to make sure the bridge stays in place after you hang it up.
  4. Stuff each of the cardboard tubes with hay and some hidden treats. The hay helps keep the treats from falling out and encourages your rabbit to munch on some of them while they look for the treats.
  5. Hang up the bridge and let your rabbit have fun with it. Make sure it’s low enough to the ground that your rabbit will be able to reach it. You can play around with the location and angle until you find a place your rabbit likes.
