Ferrets will outgrow the digging process as they age...
As for the styrofoam peanuts... make sure they are not REAL styrofoam, those are actually very dangerous for ferrets. There are however "ferret safe" foam peanuts you can buy although they tend to be a little more spendy. If you care going to do a dig box, which I highly reccommed, I would use either white uncooked rice (not instant rice), carefresh bedding (if you don't use it for litter), or shredded newspaper.
