Introduction: Egg Protector

Making a egg protector with a few materials, that protects the egg when it thrown from a height 1 foot as well as 8 feet. It also protects the egg from getting wet when it is soaked in water for 30 seconds.

Step 1: Materials Used

  1. 2 popsicle sticks
  2. One 12” by 5” flat foam
  3. A few rubber bands
  4. Scotch tape
  5. A poster board
  6. One tissue paper
  7. 4 pipe cleaners

Step 2: Wrapping the Egg

  • Cut the flat foam into a 12” by 5” sheet.
  • Place the egg on one corner of the flat foam and roll it, such that the flat foam covers the egg.
  • Once the foam wraps the egg, use rubber bands to hold the egg tight in place inside the flat foam.

Step 3: Making the Daisy Chain

  • Take three rubber bands and tie them into a daisy chain knot
    • Take two rubber bands first. Put the end of one rubber band into the other one.
    • Take the other one through itself and pull it out. It now forms a knot.
    • Do the same with the third rubber band and make it look like the one in the picture.

Step 4: Creating the Base

  • Take two Popsicle sticks.
  • Using the daisy chain knotted rubber bands, fix the egg to the two Popsicle sticks, such that the egg is raised a bit from the ground

Step 5: Creating the Carrier

  • Build a box (needed size) using the poster board.
  • Make 4 holes (2 on one side and 2 on the opposite side) such that the Popsicle sticks can go through them.
  • Fix the Popsicle sticks with the egg inside the box in position.

Step 6: Making the Parachute

  • Take 4 pipe cleaners of the same length.
  • Tie each one to the end of a tissue paper to form a parachute

Step 7: Putting It All Together

  • Make 4 holes in the box.
  • Tie the ends of the pipe cleaners through the holes to the box.
  • The egg carrier is now ready to be used.

Since the egg is placed at a height from the ground, throwing it does not crack the egg. The parachute slows the speed of the carrier.
