This toy idea first appeared in May 2005 issue of
The Frugal Parrot Newsletter.
1. Drill a small hole (about 1/8") at the end of 10 wood craft spoons.
3. Tie a tight knot and add a Quick Link.
2. Thread sisal or cotton rope through the holes and add three pony beads on each end.

Take needle-nosed pliers and take the sharp piece out first. Then put an O-ring, piece of SS chain and SS hook to hang with on the top in the already made hole.
Tie foam beads and wooden blocks through the holes on the grater. Take beads, wooden balls, etc. what ever you want and hang them from the bottom piece.
A ‘grate’ time will be had by your birds.
