One of the easiest DIY toys you can make, just collect a paper bag and fill that with dried hay, and timothy hay together, then make some holes, wherein they are being encouraged to dig their favorite hay, It will also help your bunny to play some mind game.
Another easiest toy you can make from slinky, to make that toy all you need one minute time. So the process is like: take a slinky and hang that with a chair or lower part of the table then put some veg inside the slinky. Then left the toy to your friend and let him take the challenge.

Oh! One thing should remember before giving old toys, that is: keep that toys germ free as they will chew that.

This is the most used material for creating DIY toys for rabbit, as it is safe and danger-free owners love to provide cardboard made toys to their rabbits. With this material, one can make various toys. Here I am showing one of my favorite cardboard toy ideas:
7. The tunnel made with cardboard:
As I earlier mentioned that the rabbit loves to play hide and seek, for playing that game you can make a tunnel with two medium-sized cardboard boxes. To understand the process I am giving you a guideline below:
Tunnel GuidelineAt first, take one cardboard box and create two doors, one in front of the box another is behind the box. Then create two rooms inside that box and don’t forget to do some holes over the board. With that hole, your rabbits playing zone will be more adventurous. Then create the second box like the first one.
Now it’s time to create a bridge between the two boxes, for making the bridge you can use leftover paper towel tube or can make with broken cardboard by using stapler and tape, it’s your choice. After creating the bridge then fill the two boxes with paper, tissue, ribbed towel.
That’s it. At last, let your bunny to enjoy hide and seek.
Create a puzzle with an old paper towel roll:
This type of puzzle-based DIY toy making is easier, how? Here is the guideline: take an old paper towel roll and create some holes in it then put some carrot, lettuce, and vegetables in it.
