Puncture cups with scissors and string them on chain, leather, jute or poly rope.
Fill the cups with shredded paper, corn husks, coffee filters. Add a nut, a few pellets or a treat.
To make the cups more difficult to open, punch holes on either side near the cup's lip.
Use a zip tie or string to connect the cups.
Secure both sides tightly.
To make the toy more challenging, put a nut or pellets inside small cups, then put those inside larger ones.
Add toys to the string or zip ties before tightening them for added interest.
