Finding amusing play toys to ward off boredom is no easy feat for my two (keep wanting to say my three, sigh...). The jolly ball has been part of their toy box for years and it usually sits abandoned.
The milk jug with marbles rattling inside hanging from the tree branch is equally ignored.

Here's the scoop -- you put carrot pieces, or grain, in the hole which has a lip on the inside of the "ball" preventing the treat from immediately falling out. Some low-key work is involved.
