Pumpkin Hay Bags for Bunnies: A Spooky Enrichment Treat!

By: Suzanne Denk, Animal Enrichment Specialist

Remember paper bag pumpkins from preschool?  A brown lunch bag filled with hay provides an enriching way to provide a rabbit with some of his daily portion of hay.  

  • Simply fill the lunch bag with hay.  A treat or a few pellets can be added.
  • Twist the top of the bag into a pumpkin stem. 
  • Wrap raffia around the stem.  Wrap the loose end of the raffia in as you wrap.  Leave loose ends as leafy tendrils!
  • A Jack-O-Lantern smiling face is optional!
