Introduction: One Thing to Do With Your Extra Easter Eggs

Picture of One Thing to Do With Your Extra Easter Eggs

I was thinking about what I should enter for the pocket-sized contest, and this thought came to me. Maybe I could use some of those left-over plastic Easter eggs. Thus - this Instructable was born.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

1. 1 plastic Easter egg
2. 1 pair of earphones
3. ipod, zune, CD player etc.
4. 1 airline adapter (optional)

Step 2: Inside the Egg

Picture of Inside the Egg

A. First, open the plastic Easter egg as in picture #1
B. Next, wrap the earphones around your hand as in picture #2.
C. Then, place the earphones in the larger end of the egg as in picture #3.
D. After that, put the airline adapter inside the top end of the egg as in picture #4.
E. Finally, just snap the egg back together and place it in your pocket (or where ever you want).

Step 3: You're Done!!!

Picture of You're Done!!!

You're done! cool! Good for you!

Here are some main things I do with my egg:
1. Carry it in my pocket instead of wrapping my earphones around my ipod.
2. Take on plane trips with airline adapter handy.
3. And just ~~ eat cheese ~~ ROCK out!

K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, stupid! What a great and easy use for those useless little things. I'll have to wait till spring when Mum gets them back down from the attic.

why don't u just get them down your self???

bcmummy (author)bowhunterhall2009-11-03

Because they're buried under ungodly amounts of stuff.  Trust me, you don't want to go into our attic without getting a ton of stuff out, too.

This is cool but i put a moter inside and the headphones wrap up themselves but i dont know how i did it...^^,

drummonkey92 (author)2008-03-27

nice, if you cut a hole in the egg you could push more wire in/pull it out to shorten.lenghthen the earphone wire.

Thanks, cool idea!

yo i was wondering how to cross out letters. Nice idea.

~ <--- Put two of those, space, whatever you want crossed out, space, then two more of those, and it strikes though. , <-- Comma. Pretty obvious. Put two of those, space, words, space, two more, and then it's small, but down. Put 3 of those, space, words, space, three more, and that's small words, but up.

Great idea! My family always has a ton of eggs left over from Easter.

bratnose (author)Potter452008-03-29

with security at airports they could easily mistake this as a bomb and arrest u for terrorism  

goldenbacon (author)monkeyman5802010-02-21

 uh, no

monkeyman580 (author)goldenbacon2010-02-23

um yes wires a jack and the head phone bulb can resemble a wiring for a small bomb the TSA looks for anything with wires in it, around it or attached to it, i am not here to criticize just to forewarn

There is a store in my neighborhood I go to often because it is cheap. It has dated stuff that is good but out of season, and they just put out a bunch of M&M; Easter Eggs. I have eaten the M&Ms; out of a dozen so far.

wats-a-username (author)2009-04-23

or u couls fill it with some flour alminum foil and the stuff in those trow snappy things that hurt so when u throw it is an easter egg flash grenade

bowmaster (author)2009-04-13

I drill holes in leftover eggs and put in firecrackers.

What is an airline adapter?

You put your one jack earphones in one end, and the adapter converts it into two jacks. Now you can plug it into the airplane arm rest.

i thought airlines only used 1 jack.

mettaurlover (author)JellyWoo2008-09-22

well, NOW they do.

lupinesoul (author)2008-08-26

Just an Idea: It might look a bit ridiculous, but how about running the headphone jack through a hole in the bottom of the egg? That way, You just have to pop it open and put in the headphones.

I'm liking the red, do you prefer that generation ipod nano to the first generation ipod nano?

First generation is way better... The only thing I dislike about the first gen ipod nanos is that they don't come in colors. :(
