Bird toys are expensive and Birds love destroying everything. Here are some helpful little toys to keep your feathered toddlers under control.
I usually make these for my personal birds and sometimes I donate some to the local bird rescue. It's hard to keep buying the expensive toys and when you're short on cash this is a great alternative.

Step 1: Needs

Make sure you have:
-Toilet paper roll
-shreaded paper
optional:
-treats. (peanuts, fruits, ect.)

Step 2: Stuff It

Just stuff the TP roll full of shreaded paper (and slip a treat inside if you have one.
TaDa! inexpensive toy!

Step 3: Pictures: Look at Her Work at It!

she loves to rip the papers our then destroy the roll.
sidenote:
also, my african grey is a rescue and she has a plucking habit. We have been working with her by rubbing medicated oil on her fatherless spots and vitamin supplements (all prescribed by the vet, in case anyone was curious I think its called sun oil? for birds). but she had this habitat before we got her.

    This is a great instructable. We have two grey's and a conure and I purchased a paper shredder a few months ago thinking of the birds for picking toys, I wish we had gotten one a long time ago. It was the best "toy" for them because we can easily shred a few pieces of paper and stuff the paper into any type of container for them to dig in and find treats or to lash a bundle together and hang somewhere for them to pick at. Best of all if they destroy it in 5 minutes you can give them another because they are practically free.

    She's beautiful. My green cheek conure likes TP rolls. We give him plain ones and they're probably one of his favorite toys so I think he'll really love this! :)
