Every week we feature a fun and/or educational activity you can try at home or in the classroom. We have begun mailing our Gift Catalog for this years holiday season and will be featuring activities that highlight the items available.
For many people around the world, rabbits are a vital source of nutrition. Loved for being fluffy and social, rabbits are a popular pet in the United States. Do you have a pet rabbit?This holiday season, make rabbit treats for your pet.
- One cup of rolled oats
- One fourth of a cup of rabbit food (the pellets)
- Two bunches of parsley
- Half a carrot
- Half a banana
- Tablespoon to one fourth of a cup of water
Grind the oats and rabbit pellets into a powder. A coffee grinder works great for this. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Next puree carrot, banana, parsley and add water. The mixture should be liquified, but not too watery. Place the powder into a large bowl and pour the liquified mixture into the bowl, stirring the ingredients together. This will form a stiff dough. Roll out the dough to one fourth of an inch thick. Cut it into small shapes. Place the treat on either a baking stone or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the treats for about half an hour, but don't let them burn. Let the treats stay on the warm baking sheet for an hour. Do not give your bunny more than one treat per day.
