My little one needs toys!

Does anyone know of some toys I could make with things lying around the house? My 16-month-old is bored, and I don't know what else I can do for her short of spending hundreds of dollars buying toys I'm not sure she'll even use. So I was thinking I could make something?

She has two other horses, and spends all day in the pasture with them. There is a soccer ball, a caution cone, and a jolly ball in the pasture, as well as some jugs tied up to the ceiling in the run-in.

I think she's bored because the other day, I went out to the pasture and found that she had dug me a big hole. Like a dog. And I mean a BIG hole, it was like two feet across and three feet deep. I filled it in and stomped it down, then put the cone on top of it, and she doesn't seem to be doing it anymore. It's not really the digging that concerns me, although I think it's really weird, but it's the big holes I don't want. I don't need my girls breaking their legs stepping in it. O_O

So please, if you've made your horse a toy, or know of one that worked for your horse that was inexpensive, please let me know!

Someone here posted milk jugs with small holes in them hung up around a stall. Then put some horse treats in them just large enough to go through the holes if the horse works at it. I thought that were pretty cool and easy to make.

the only thing with the mild jug is make sure you burn the edges to round them so they don't cut them selves.
