Introduction: Rigged Easter Egg

Having a pleasant Easter, I decided to add a little humor to the traditional game of egg hunting. Placing a spring in a plastic egg, I made it so that it will pop open from shaking it. I notice that many kids shake them to see if they got something good, but they're in for a surprise! Using a larger spring like I did will even make the egg open by itself occasionally! It's really a fun twist to add in egg hunting, and very rewarding to see an unsuspecting person pick one up. I will post up a small video soon to show a quick demonstration.

Happy Easter!

Have fun with your egg! Make sure that you place something in it so the egg will pop by shaking (best chance of surprise).
