DIY Hanging Straw Forager

I’m super excited to share this DIY toy with you guys. I’m very pleased with how this turned out. It’s a great toy to stimulate the little minds of the gliders. This is a foraging toy, which is their favorite type!

What You’ll Need

  • Six straws
  • Craft lace
  • A small cup or container
  • A C-Link
  • Beads

You’re going to start by cutting your straws into varying size pieces. Then you’ll poke holes in the middle of each straw piece. This is the most time intensive part. Be sure to clip off/file down any little pieces that could poke or hurt your gliders.

Next you’re going to take your C-link and tie the craft lace to it.

Now comes the fun part! You’ll put two beads on and then three straws. Continue doing this until the toy reaches the desired length.

Tie the foraging cup onto the end.

And there you have it! A super easy toy that’ll give your gliders hours of fun!

Where To Buy

  • Craft Lace
  • Beads (Dollar Store)
  • Straws (Dollar Store)
  • Foraging Cup (Dollar Store)
  • C-Links
