Grab Bags

November 11th, 2017 by Anna

Brief description: These are a fun puzzle/forage enrichment that combines multiple elements of your enrichment program. Chimps can spend a lot of time looking through bags to discover what’s inside.

Paper grocery size bags and assorted toys and food puzzle enrichment. You could substitute other kinds of bags or boxes if available and approved in enrichment program.

Assembly instructions: No assembly required, depending on what you add to the bags

How to use:
Fill bags with an assortment of clothing, paper, and toys. Add a food puzzle or two such as Kongs, peanut butter magazines, pine cones, etc. Add crumpled paper (maybe smear a bit of peanut butter on some of the paper). Smear some peanut butter on the toys you added and sprinkle a handful of nuts or seeds in the bag, hiding more inside the toys and clothing. You can get pretty creative with this!

Depends on other items you add to the bags. You can use recycled grocery bags.
