Pigs explore their environment and search for food by rooting (digging with the snout). A rooting box is a toy designed to emulate a pig's natural rooting behavior. Typically the box is made from wood with sides shallow enough for the pig to step into but deep enough to hold river rocks or balls. The idea is to sprinkle treats among the rocks and let the pig use all her snout rooting powers to uncover the snacks. There are endless objects that can be repurposed as a rooting box - I've used a new kitty litter box, old chest drawer, and plastic Tupperware.
